     Scientist / Author


A theoretical physicist by training, Hans G. Schantz discovered how bound or reactive electromagnetic energy becomes radiation and vice versa.

He is the author of The Art and Science of Ultrawideband Antennas, and the science fiction techno-thriller, The Hidden Truth. Hans lives in Huntsville, Alabama with his wife, and two sets of twins.
