EENG 549/5249 - Antennas Design and Applications (3 cr.)



Prerequisites
   or equivalent.

Description
Introduction to frequency spectrum, Maxwell’s equations, propagation in free space, infinitesimal dipole antennas, antennas parameters. Aspects of wired antenna will be covered: small dipole, finite length dipole, image theory, monopole, folded dipole, matching techniques, infinitesimal loop antenna, small loop antennas, and helical antennas. Review on rectangular waveguides, rectangular horn, equivalence theory, Love’s equivalence theory, H-plane sectoral horn, E-plane sectoral horn, pyramidal horn, parabolic reflectors. Two element array, uniform array, array factor, broadside and end fire arrays, phase scanning arrays, non uniform array, Binomial array, Dolph–Chebyshev array in addition to broadband antennas such as Yagi-Uda, log-periodic antennas. The course will introduce the fundamentals of microstrip antennas.
