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.
