Antennas and Wave Propagation

The book provides a lucid overview of electromagnetic theory and a com- prehensive introduction to various types of antennas and their radiation characteristics. A minimal use of mathematical physics and emphasis on conceptual understanding make it an ideal text for undergraduate students. A large number of solved problems are interspersed through the text to enable the student to comprehensively grasp concepts and their applications.

Infibeam Go to Infibeam website. Online and Digital Harisu. It also introduces the vector potential approach to the solution of the wave equation and the concept of the Hertzian dipole. Teaching the antenna theory course has given us an opportunity to interact with many students. We sell our titles through other companies Amazon Go to Amazon ad.

The book contains a separate chapter on antenna measurements, which introduces the practical aspects of antenna characterization. We would like to thank him for his kind gesture.

Schematic block diagrams of the measurement instrumentation are presented. It includes exhaustive coverage of basic antennas, such as dipoles, loops, and slots, which provides a clear comprehension of the principles of radiation and techniques of analysis. Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering.


Radio Wave Propagation Read More. Electromagnetic Radiation Chapter 2. Indoor and outdoor measurement ranges which provide free-space-like conditions for the antenna are explained. Antenna Arrays Chapter 6. Chapter 1 is essentially a review of basic electromagnetic theory. Some of the antennas discussed sschidananda monopole, V antenna, Yagi—Uda array, turnstile antenna, helix, spiral, microstrip patch, etc. In fact, it was an antenna which led Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson to their Nobel Prize winning discovery of cosmic background radiation.

Procedures for the measure- ment of the gain, directivity, radiation pattern, etc. Chapter 7 is focused on the techniques used to measure antenna parame- ters. Enviado por Felipe flag Denunciar. Antennas vary widely in their shapes, sizes, and radiation characteristics. We would like to express our gratitude for the abtennas editing, graphics, and design of the book.

It provides a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts of the subject. Written in an easy-to-understand manner, the book includes several illustrative examples.

The chapter ends with a dis- cussion on the design of binomial and Chebyshev patterns. Apart from the ground and sky wave propagation characteristics, the book also discusses propagation models for urban and rural environments, which are used in the design of mobile phone networks.


Detailed explanations of special antenna types as also simplified design procedures for some of the popular antennas are included. A large number of exercise problems with varying difficulty levels are included to reinforce theoretical concepts. Currently this book is not available in Flipkart. Content and Structure This book contains eight chapters which provide a comprehensive treatment of antennas and wave propagation.

In this chapter, we study the interaction of the media and the discontinuities with electromagnetic waves. The book introduces the reader to the fundamentals of antennas and wave propagation with a lucid explanation of the basic concepts and theorems.

Description Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering. Use of polynomial represen- tation of the array factor of a uniformly-spaced linear array and its pole-zero Preface vii representation on a circle diagram is explained. The calcu- lation of free space communication link budget is illustrated with examples. These are followed by a list of references for those interested in further reading.

Chapter 5 is devoted to the study of antenna arrays. Acknowledgements It is a pleasure to thank our wives Radha and Shalini, and children Bhavana and Bharath for their love, care, and emotional support.
