Aim

The aim of the course is to provide the fundamental methods and tools for analysis and design of microwave antennas

Content

The course covers the basic electromagnetic principles and their application to different types of antennas, all in a unified and complete vector notation. In addition, we demonstrate a Mathcad handbook that easily provides numerical results of classical antenna design formulas. The book includes among other things: the definitions of the radiation field function, the phase reference point and the phase center; characteristics of rotationally symmetric antennas (BOR); incremental electric and magnetic sources, and the Huygens source for modeling apertures; the theories of apertures, Gaussian beams and spectral domain analysis; and practical antennas such as dipoles, slots, horn antennas, corrugated horn antennas, reflector antennas, microstrip antennas, linear and planar arrays. The material is presented with emphasis on physical interpretations.
The course contains three lab exercises:
1) Antenna radiation pattern measurement
2) Waveguide slot antenna admittance measurement
3) Measurement of Total Radiated Power from GSM mobile phones
