Wireless communications have progressed very rapidly in recent years and mobile handsets are becoming smaller and smaller. Present-day mobile cellular communication systems include combinations of the AMPS, GSM-900, DCS-l800, PCS-1900, UMTS, and WLANs in the 2.4GHz and 5.2GHz bands. User requirements for access to the various aforementioned wireless telecommunication services have resulted in a rapid technological push to unify these different systems in a drastically decreased size single mobile handset. All this combined with strict limitations set for the energy absorbed by the users of mobile terminals has created a need for improved antenna solutions and better understanding of small antennas. The objective of this thesis is to develop novel multi-band handset antenna design solutions to satisfy the specific bandwidth requirements of mobile cellular communication systems. [Continues.]
