  • Characterization of the Far-Field Environment of Antennas Located Over a Ground Plane and Implications for Cellular Communication Systems

    In this paper, we look at the characterization of the far-field regions of antennas located over a ground plane. For antennas radiating in free space, the far field starts at a distance 2L2/λ, where L is' the effective size of the antenna, and λ is the wavelength. The question now is if this same radiating antenna is placed at a height H over a ground plane, then where doe... View full abstract»

  • On the Power Absorbed and Scattered by an Antenna

    We discuss the powers absorbed and scattered by a receiving antenna. Most antennas scatter more than they absorb. Antennas that scatter less power than they absorb are rare, and the few examples that have been presented are all based on numerical optimization. This note presents a simple conceptual model - a partially transparent aperture antenna - which provides physical insight into the case whe... View full abstract»

  • Development of the Incremental IEMF Method to Validate FARS (Far-field Analysis of Radiation Sources)

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):46 - 54
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    FARS is reviewed here, and a procedure denoted as the Incremental Induced Electromotive Force (IIEMF) method is presented to prove the validity of FARS. An extension of the classical IEMF method, IIEMF involves determining the pairwise near-field power interaction between current samples on a PEC (perfect electrically conducting) object or a specified current. The IIEMF method not only validates F... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the experimental characterization of a wideband 2×2 MIMO channel in typical indoor-outdoor scenarios in the 3.5 GHz band. The transmitter array emulates a base station positioned on the terrace of a building, and the receiver array, situated inside a nearby building, represents the end-user terminal. In a previous work, the authors analyzed the advantages attainable with... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of Ultra-Wideband Printed Planar Quasi-Monopole Antennas Using the Theory of Characteristic Modes

    This paper presents an analysis of ultra-wideband (UWB) printed planar quasi-monopole antennas using the theory of characteristic modes. It is shown that the modal voltage-standing-wave ratio, mode current distribution, and modal significance provide deeper physical insight into the operating mechanisms of these popular types of antennas. Using the printed planar bevel-shaped quasi-monopole antenn... View full abstract»

  • A Review of and New Results for Broadband Antennas for Digital Terrestrial Broadcasting: The Modified Batwing Antenna

    Digital terrestrial broadcasting services are in the Japanese UHF band of 470 to 770 MHz. The bandwidth of the UHF-TV channel is 6 MHz. The batwing radiator, which is at the heart of the super-turnstile antenna system for FM and VHF-TV broadcasting, has broadband characteristics. In this paper, we investigated a modified batwing antenna for UHF digital terrestrial broadcasting. The characteristics... View full abstract»

  • Waveguide-Slot Array Antenna Designs for Low-Average-Sidelobe Specifications

    This paper discusses the design, analysis, and development of waveguide-fed planar slot arrays to achieve low-average-sidelobe specifications, as may arise in radiometer applications. Such antennas may be required to meet strict average sidelobe levels in different angular regions, and low average return loss over a specified bandwidth. In addition to Elliott's design technique, we used a Moment-M... View full abstract»
