Abstract

Metamaterial-inspired near-field resonant parasitic (NFRP) electrically small antennas (ESAs) have been designed and experimentally validated to have not only high radiation efficiencies, but also multi-functionality, large bandwidths, high directivities and reconfigurability. These expanded capabilities have been attained by introducing more complex meta-structures, i.e., multiple NFRP elements loaded with fixed and tunable lumped elements, as well as active circuits. Different classes of passive and active NFRP ESAs that have successfully produced these effects will be reviewed, and several recently reported ESA systems will be introduced and discussed.
