From the European antenna community (i.e., ESoA & EurAAP) it has been
seen that there are other scientific and industrial communities that may find
problems when dealing with antenna topics, for instance, in the development of
The spectrum of these communities is quite broad: Microwave engineers, Communication
(i.e. mobile communication) engineers, Signal Processing engineers, Terahertz
engineers, mechanical and robotics engineers and aerospace engineers and other
applications, i.e., bio or medical professionals.
This antenna course is devoted to explain the fundamentals on antennas to
those communities, and to offer them some help on dealing with antennas.
In addition, application examples will be given, as well as industrial
lectures on integrated antennas (i.e. mobile or GPS), base station antennas,
space application antennas and terahertz antennas.
Introduction to antennas. The antenna from the signal processing point of
Vocabulary on antennas: Antenna parameters and fundamentals on
Elementary antennas I: Small antennas and resonant antennas. Application: integrated antennas for mobile
communication systems and GPS.
Fundamentals on antenna arrays. Application: arrays for base stations.
Elementary antennas II: Aperture antennas. Application:
on board antennas.
Introduction to active antennas. Application: Terahertz antennas. For further information see the file: FOA_ESOA_brochure.pdf and agenda_FOA.pdf
