Abstract

Matrix interpolation method is applied to complex antenna structures being considered for modern personal communications applications. With this method, impedance matrices for several relatively widely spaced frequencies are directly computed and stored. The elements of the impedance matrix at an intermediate frequency are computed by interpolating the elements of the stored matrices. This method is particularly well-suited for the analysis of antennas for personal wireless applications. Such antennas are either small and low-profile or consist of thin wires. The results of this method applied to both type of antennas, a planar inverted F antenna and a helix, is presented.
