Abstract
Electrically-small loop antennas are a complex topic, with many design concepts to consider, including: effective magnetic core permeability, antenna impedance, antenna radiation, surrounding medium effects, and optimization approaches. There is a plethora of literature available covering these subjects but many conflict, compete, or are overall lacking; this thesis seeks to compare and analyze literature then validate with measurements, allowing optimal design.
