Microstrip patch antennas have become the favorite of antenna designers because of their versatility and having the advantages of planar profile, ease of fabrication, compatibility with integrated circuit technology, and conformability with a shaped surface.
There is a need for graduate students and practicing engineers to gain an in depth understanding of this subject.
The first edition of this book, published in 2011, was written with this purpose in mind.
This second edition contains approximately one third new materials.
The authors, Prof KF Lee, Prof KM Luk and Dr HW Lai, have all made significant contributions in the field.
Prof Lee and Prof Luk are IEEE Fellows. Prof Lee was the recipient of the 2009 John Kraus Antenna Award of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society while Prof.
Luk receives the same award in 2017, both in recognition of their contributions to wideband microstrip antennas.
