Electrically Small Antennas

Call for Papers
Designing antennas with dimensions much smaller than the           tem at according to the following
wavelength of radiated electromagnetic waves is very chal-         timetable:
lenging as the radiation efficiency and bandwidth of such
antennas are fundamentally limited. On the other hand,                  Manuscript Due           March 1, 2010
miniaturizing antennas in wireless devices has become inc-
reasingly important as antennas are the largest components              First Round of Reviews   June 1, 2010

   The special issue will provide a fast channel for researchers
to disseminate their most recent research finding, develop-
ments, and ideas in the field. Authors are welcome to submit        Lead Guest Editor
