Unveiling the Art and Science of UWB Antennas Bookplate

Bookplate to be included with every signed copy of The Art and Science of UWB Antennas.
Bookplate to be included with every signed copy of The Art and Science of UWB Antennas.

Every signed copy of The Art and Science of UWB Antennas will come with a complimentary bookplate. Designed by Patricia Forrest and inspired by a classic design from 1950s science fiction illustrator Ed Emshwiller, the bookplate features equations and graphics from the text. Design elements include:

  • Impulses combining destructive on an idealized transmission line,
  • The impedance of ideal electric and magnetic dipoles plotted on a Smith-Carter Chart,
  • A UWB loop antenna (U.S. Patent 7,209,089),
  • A UWB dipole antenna (U.S. Patents 6,512,488 and 6,642,903),
  • Field lines for a dipole with a transient excitation,
  • An omni-directional antenna pattern,
  • A spherical harmonic with L = 3 and m = 3, and
  • The equations for normalized energy velocity as a function of normalized field impedance, the range versus near-field phase angle employed in Q-Track’s original NFER real-time location systems (U.S. Patent 6,963,301), the gain formula for electrically-small antennas, and the equation for dipole field lines of arbitrary time dependance.

Patricia also added a graphic element from her design for the Q-Track corporate logo.

Signed copies of The Art and Science of UWB Antennas may be ordered at the link for $110 including shipping and handling.
