The course deals with antennas, fundamental components in different electronic systems commonly used in today's information society. In particular, the course provides skills both in reference to basic radianting structures and to the most recent advanced and intelligent antenna systems.
The course provides knowledge and skills related to antennas, with reference to both their working principles and their use in various application areas in the industrial, civil, and biomedical fields.
The course provides knowledge and skills related to antennas, with reference to both their working principles and their use in various application areas in the industrial, civil, and biomedical fields. The following main topics will be addressed. Fundamentals of electromagnetic radiation and antenna parameters. Linear antennas, aperture antennas, reflector antennas, printed antennas. Arrays of antennas and their application for the realization of MIMO systems, intelligent and reconfigurable antennas. The goal of the course is to allow students to understand how to deal with antenna analysis and design.
Basic knowledge of electromagnetic fields.
Electromagnetic radiation. Antenna radiation parameters. Linear antennas (dipoles, monopoles, loops ...). Aperture antennas (open waveguides, Horn, ...). Reflector antennas (parabolic dish, ...). Printed antennas (patch antennas, ...). Antenna arrays (linear and planar antennas, smart and reconfigurable antennas). Link between antennas.
