Wire Antennas Chapter 4. In fact, it was an antenna which led Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson to their Nobel Prize winning discovery of cosmic background radiation.

These antennas cover a wide range of applications in various frequency bands. These are followed by a list of references for those interested in further reading. We are grateful to them for enduring the countless hours of absence during the prepara- tion of the manuscript.

Relevant numerical problems with answers have been included as end-chapter antennas and wave propagation harish and sachidananda to test the understanding of the topics introduced in each chapter. The editorial team at Oxford University Press India has done a commendable harizh in bringing out this book.

Written in an easy-to-understand manner, the book includes several illustrative examples. Description Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering. Special Antennas Chapter 7.

Detailed procedures for the computation of the performance parameters of these antennas are also given. In this chapter, we study the interaction of the media and the discontinuities with electromagnetic waves. It also introduces the vector potential approach antfnnas the solution of the wave equation and the concept of the Hertzian dipole. It starts with the pattern multiplication principle and goes on to explain various pattern prop- erties using a two-element array as an example.


The antennas and wave propagation harish and sachidananda provides a lucid overview of electromagnetic theory and a com- prehensive introduction to various types of antennas and their radiation characteristics.
