In fact, it was an antenna which led Arno Penzias and Eave Wilson to their Nobel Prize winning discovery of cosmic background radiation. 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. A large number of solved problems are interspersed through the text to enable the student to comprehensively grasp concepts and their applications.
Finally, Chapter 8 deals with the issues related to propagahion propagation of radio waves.

Teaching the antenna theory course has given us an opportunity to interact with many students. Enviado por Felipe flag Denunciar. We appreciate the advice and support from friends and colleagues, which helped us in the preparation of the manuscript. Procedures for the measure- ment of the gain, directivity, radiation pattern, etc.
The chapter ends with a dis- cussion on the design of binomial and Chebyshev patterns. Antenna Arrays Chapter 6. Further, a clear-cut presentation of the basic concepts of v vi Preface wave propagation, including ground wave and hwrish propagation, goes on to make this text a useful and self-contained reference on antennas and radio wave propagation.
Detailed procedures for the computation of the performance parameters of these antennas are also given. We would like to thank him for his kind gesture. Chapter 6 details a select set of such antennas under sachidahanda title Special Antennas. Schematic block diagrams of the measurement instrumentation are presented.
Indoor and outdoor measurement ranges which provide free-space-like conditions for the antenna are explained. Online and Digital Products. All these devices require an antenna to function. 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.
Acknowledgements Sachidanandq is a pleasure to thank our wives Radha and Shalini, and children Bhavana and Bharath for their love, care, and emotional support. Detailed explanations of special antenna types as also simplified design procedures for some of the popular antennas are included.
These are followed by a list of references an those interested in further reading. In this chapter, we study the interaction of the media and the discontinuities with electromagnetic waves.
Written in an easy-to-understand manner, the book includes several illustrative examples.
Chapter 5 is devoted to the study of antenna arrays. Sachjdananda Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering. Overview Description Table of contents Features.
Radio Wave Propagation Read More. A minimal use of mathematical physics and emphasis on conceptual understanding make it an ideal text for undergraduate students.
Antennas and Wave Propagation
The book introduces the reader to the fundamentals of antennas and wave propagation with a lucid explanation of the basic concepts and theorems. Aperture Antennas Chapter 5.
Keeping this sachidanadna in mind, this sachidananra emphasizes the conceptual understanding of the principles of radiation and wave prop- agation by keeping the mathematical analysis to a minimum. 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.
Antennas vary widely in their wsve, sizes, and radiation characteristics. Currently this book is not available in Flipkart.
Some of the antennas discussed are monopole, V antenna, Yagi—Uda array, turnstile antenna, helix, spiral, microstrip patch, etc. The radiation pattern properties and some anr design procedures are explained.
We would like to express our gratitude for the excellent editing, graphics, and design of the book. These antennas cover a wide range of applications in various frequency bands. Antenna Characteristics Chapter 3. Flipkart Go to Flipkart website.
We are grateful to them for enduring the countless hours of absence during the prepara- tion of the manuscript. We sell our titles through other companies Amazon Go to Amazon website. Anf and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering.
