Michael; Warner, Mary P October July 8, Radar Handbook PDF 2nd ed. For the reader interested in understanding how the electric magnetic fields for a dipole antenna are derived, I highly recommend Balanis' Antenna Theory textbook.
As noted, Part 2 of this text also chapters covering frequency independent i. Chapter 13 discusses frequency independent antennas in detail starting with a mathematical explanation of how an antenna can be designed to obtain gain and impedance that are independent of frequency. This chapter also discusses several kinds of spiral antennas, log-periodic antennas, and sinuous antennas. Having covered fundamentals and various antenna designs, the text now turns to how these antennas can be used in the real world as well as more complex antennas such as fractal antennas.
I would say that this part of the text is a mixture of theory and practical applications. The practical chapters include the ones on mobile handset antennas, antennas designed for particular frequency bands such as UHF, and automobile antennas. Below is a partial list of the chapters contained within this section:. To start, the topics covered in Chapter 32 include antennas integrated with RF amplifiers and rectennas. The term "rectenna" is an amalgamation of the words "rectifying antennas. The general idea is to convert high-frequency RF energy into DC voltage and current when attached to a load.
One would use a rectenna as an energy harvesting device, as is the case with passive RFID tags. The author explains the mathematical concepts behind rectennas and gives design examples of both narrowband and broadband rectenna design. In addition, I found Chapter 33 Fractal Antennas very interesting. The authors explain how wideband antennas can be synthesised using fractals.
They also describe wideband fractal antenna arrays with theory on how infitesimal dipoles can be layed out in a semi-random fashion using polyfractals. They note that an issue with uniform linear arrays is that wideband operation is not possible because the periodic nature of the array causes grating lobes i. The antenna elements also interact with each other causing them to detune and have poor impedance matches. Hence, the idea is to layout the elements in a semi-random fashion such that the elements are not uniformly spaced throughout the length of the array.
The authors also give examples of planar arrays based on fractal and aperiodic tilings.
Antenna Engineering Handbook, 4th Edition
Like the linear areas, the idea is to make sure that elements are not uniformly spaced when layed out in a plane. This also prevents grating lobes, and it antenna elements from detuning each other at higher frequencies. This part of the text does not discuss antenna theory and design per se. Instead, the various authors discuss different topics that are important corequisites for antenna designs. For example, Chapter 51 discusses transmission lines, and Chapter 52 discusses impedance matching techniques.
