Antennas in transmission

Part of the Microwave and RF Technology Series book series (MRFT, volume 12)


We suppose that the antenna is of finite dimensions, and we consider the radiated field at a point M in the direction u, at a distance r which is very large compared with the wavelength λ (Fig. 3.1).The electromagnetic field has the form of a plane wave
