On radiation of electromagnetic and electroacoustic waves in plasma

Part II

  • 20 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


The infinitely long cylindrical antenna immersed in a compressible plasma is considered as a boundary-value problem. The analysis starts with a specified voltage at a circumferential gap which is uniformly excited. It is found that the radiation pattern of the antenna is influenced only, to a slight extent, by the finite compressibility of the plasma, provided that the wire diameter is somewhat larger than a Debye length in the plasma.
