In Your Own Words with Mohammad Sharawi – Designing active integrated antennas for wireless communication devices

When Artech House authors write their books, we ask them what they want their readers to get out of the project. In this series, we show you what our authors, in their own words, wish to impart upon readers. Mohammad Sharawi, author of Design and Applications of Active Integrated Antennas, describes what his book is …

Polarization in Electromagnetic Systems with Warren Stutzman

Artech House author Warren Stutzman gave us insights into his motivations for writing his book, Polarization in Electromagnetic Systems, Second Edition: Electromagnetic waves are characterized by four parameters: frequency, intensity, direction of propagation, and polarization.  The last of these is the least understood and is often inadequately addressed in system design.  Perhaps that is due to …
