Brief description Wideband Strongly-Truncated Composite Cavity-Resonator Antennas. A rapidly growing demand for fast wireless services calls for wideband communication systems with wideband antennas, which are compact, aesthetically appealing and inexpensive, yet have good performance. With novel concepts, this project aims to produce a new class of antennas that deliver impressive performance (bandwidth and gain) while taking up a dramatically reduced area in a way that was impossible before, increasing a figure-of-merit to up to seven times the state-of-the-art. Their planar geometry and simplicity lead to low cost. This is expected to create new knowledge, design methods and examples, prototypes, test results and guidelines required to design, optimise and make these versatile antennas for emerging robust broadband wireless systems.
