    The analysis of infinite arrays of waveguide apertures on cylinders covered by a dielectric is approached by enforcing the continuity of the EM fields at the air-dielectric and at the dielectric-cylinder interfaces. The continuity of the EM fields at the first interface is enforced by representing the fields in the air and in the dielectric by an orthonormal set of modes LSE and LSM with respect t...

    The principal objective of this investigation was to determine how to efficiently excite a small conical body over a 2:1 frequency bandwidth such that a prescribed minimun value of gain is exceeded in a60degconical sector about the forward axis of the cone. To achieve the necessary bandwidth, two approaches have been considered. First, an electrically small moderately efficient tunable ... View full abstract»

    A new feed concept is described which greatly simplifies the problem of commutating the RF distribution system of a cylindrical phased array. The feed consists of a circular parallel-plate radial transmission line with a central set of probes and a ring of peripheral probes. The array of probes in the center can be phased to produce an amplitude distribution in the parallel-plate line in any given... View full abstract»

    A narrow-beam antenna using an artificial dielectric medium with effective permittivity less than unity has been investigated theoretically and experimentally. Complex propagation constant for a wave propagating along the structure is evaluated by solving the dispersion relation. The analysis indicates the presence of a leaky-wave mode.

    An approach to the indirect probing of inhomogeneous plane stratified plasmas is presented which, within numerical limitations, yields unique electron density profiles. It has been shown that the density profile and the reflected wave generated by adelta- function incident electric field are uniquely related by a Fredholm integral equation. The integral equation is solved numerically by... View full abstract»

    An explicit expression is derived for the surface impedance of a half-space composed of two layers. The upper layer is assumed to be arbitrarily inhomogeneous. The bottom layer, which is of infinite thickness, is assumed to be homogeneous. The expression contains the state-transition matrix elements associated with the upper layer. This matrix is determined numerically and analytically for rapidly... View full abstract»

    It is shown that a specular-point scattering model adequately predicts the relation between the average quasi-specular microwave scattering cross section of the sea and the mean wind speed. The mean-square sea slope required in this model varies with both the upper and lower ends of the waveheight spectrum, which in themselves are functions of wind speed. Optical measurements of slopes confirm thi... View full abstract»

    A propagation velocity of a whistler-mode signal in an unstable and abnormally dispersive plasma-beam system was investigated. Responses of the plasma in real time and space were computed by the inverse Fourier-Laplace transformation. The computed results of the propagation velocity are compared with various velocities analytically determined from the dispersion equation. View full abstract»

    For a conformal array of nonparallel radiators the classical array theory fails to offer a convenient way for calculating the array pattern and its cross-polarized counterpart. This study shows that under a wide range of conditions, these patterns can be simply obtained from the array space factor by partial differentiation. The scalar space factor of an array, therefore, can be considered as a ge... View full abstract»

    The impedance sheet concept used to predict the transmission and reflection properties of thin dielectrics is extended to determine the transmission and reflection properties of thin periodically varying dielectrics. For plane-wave incidence, the effect of the periodic interface is to generate a higher order modal distribution on both sides of the boundary. It is shown that situations exist where ...
