"The cambridge rF and Microwave engineering series"
A n n o u n c i n g A new series The cambridge rF and Microwave engineering series series editor Dr Steve C. Cripps Hywave Associates The main motivation for this important new series of books is a large and still growing need for information and learning which has been created by the wireless revolution of the last 15 years. Consumer products such as mobile phones, satellite TV, PDAs, wireless LANs, and wireless appliance controllers are underpinned by RF/microwave technology, which is developing rapidly, with new techniques, devices and materials enabling improved communications technologies. The series will publish books on both fundamental RF/ Key information microwave topics and on specific topical application areas readership for engineers who need to be brought up to speed on new Practising engineers, academic and industrial researchers, graduate students developments. Market RF and microwave engineering, Electronics, optoelectronic devices, and nanotechnology, circuits.
