I started my career as an antenna engineer in the mobile phone industry during the early 2000s. Despite over 10 years of researching electromagnetic topics, I felt that I lacked a lot of important aspects of a good antenna engineer, and there was no book available to provide all the necessary information. It took me several years to collect bits and pieces by learning from different sources. Since then, I have worked on both sides of the antenna business, as a vendor when I was with Amphenol Inc.; and then as a client when I was with Nokia Inc. and Apple Inc. My job also changed back and forth between antenna engineer and engineering manager. The experience gave me an opportunity to view antenna design from various angles.

This book presents most of the issues that directly concern mobile antenna design, what I have learned and many ideas I accumulated during the years. I hope this book can help students who want to pursue a career as an antenna engineer in the wireless communication industry. Another goal of this book is to provide a shortcut for electronic engineers who do not know a lot about antennas but want to design some simple antennas without the hassle of learning from various sources. For antenna engineers already working in the field, the challenge facing them is how to squeeze an antenna into a smaller enclosure and still meet all the bandwidth, multi-band, and efficiency specifications. This book provides various advanced antenna design techniq....
