Abstract

One of the most important modules of the current and next generation of the wireless communications is the antenna. The coexistence of the machine and human in the next
communication system will open-up a vast range of new applications and communication services which need to be supported by the antenna.
Moreover, the forthcoming 5G technology vision is prognosticated on the use of multiple communication bands and standards in a seamless fashion.This can force the mobile devices to have multiple antennas on a single device which will add significant complexity or using an antenna with wideband reconfiguration capability. On the other hand, switched-off analogue communications provides the opportunity for re-using prime spectrum in UHF bands. Considering the size of hand-held devices, this will need strong miniaturization. To address these requirements, electrically small, tunable, wideband and highly efficient antenna technology is strongly desired.
In this thesis a new area of research in antenna design is introduced which has been unexplored by the other researchers. A new theory called Injection Matching Theory (IMT) is proposed which uses multi-port configuration. This will enable to control current distribution on the antenna structure at its extremities and couple a wave length, much larger than what the antenna dimensions naturally allow. Apart from electrically small operation this can be used for improving band width and efficiency, and providing
reconfiguration capability.
To illustrate the versatility of the proposed theory, for every feature mentioned above a chapter is provided which demonstrates the potential capability of the proposed theory via simulation and fabrication of the prototyped examples.
