Title: Measurements of Metamaterial-Inspired, Electrically Small Antenna Systems
Published: March 02, 2009
Abstract: The paper discusses the analysis and measurements of electrical small antennas. The antennas discussed here are based on antenna designed from metamaterial inspired concepts. An electromagnetic reverberation chamber is used for the test of the antennas. A reverberation chamber is basically a shielded room (metallic wall) with an arbitrarily shaped metallic rotating paddle and is an ideal environment for measuring the total radiated power of an antenna. Simulations and measurements of various antennas will be presented.
