Self-complimentary and broadband antennas

Kunio Sawaya

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Frequency independent and broadband antennas are reviewed form the view points of the self-complementarity and self-similarity. The theory of selfcomplementary antenna, original and modified self-complementary antennas, and so-called log-periodic antennas are discussed. Then the frequency independent antennas based on the self-similarity and other broadband antennas are presented.
