EL6723 Electromagnetic Radiation and Antennas

Credits: 3.00

The electromagnetic fields radiated by current elements are derived from Maxwell’s equations. From these results, the fields radiated by many types of antennas are derived, including various types of dipoles, arrays, aperture, and frequency independent and traveling wave antennas. Concepts introduced include radiation resistance and pattern, directivity, gain, effective area, reciprocity, bandwidth, noise temperature, mutual coupling and array scanning impedance.

Prerequisites: Graduate status and EL 6713, or EL 3604 with grade B or better.
