- 5. Two fields regions: oNear field or Fresnel region: The region within the radius of the smallest sphere which completely encloses the antenna is called Fresnel region. In sitting an antenna ,it’s crucial to keep objects out of the near field region to avoid coupling the currents in the antenna with objects. oFar Field or Fraunhofer region: The region beyond Fresnel region is called Fraunhofer region AJAL.A.J- AP ECE UNIVERSAL ENGG COLLEGE

- 7. The radiation pattern of an antenna is a plot of the farfield radiation from the antenna. More specifically, it is a plot of the power radiated from an antenna per unit solid angle, or its radiation intensity U [watts per unit solid angle]. This is arrived at by simply multiplying the power density at a given distance by the square of the distance r, where the power density S [watts per square metre] is given by the magnitude of the time-averaged Poynting vector: U=r^²S AJAL.A.J- AP ECE UNIVERSAL ENGG COLLEGE

- 12. The resistive part of the antenna impedance is split into two parts, a radiation resistance Rr and a loss resistance Rl. The power dissipated in the radiation resistance is the power actually radiated by the antenna, and the loss resistance is power lost within the antenna itself. This may be due to losses in either the conducting or the dielectric parts of the antenna. Radiation efficiency e of the antenna as e is the ratio of power radiated to the power accepted by antenna antenna with high radiation efficiency therefore has high associated radiation resistance compared with the losses. The antenna is said to be resonant if its input reactance Xa =0. AJAL.A.J- AP ECE UNIVERSAL ENGG COLLEGE

- 14. The power gain G, or simply the gain, of an antenna is the ratio of its radiation intensity to that of an isotropic antenna radiating the same total power as accepted by the real antenna. When antenna manufacturers specify simply the gain of an antenna they are usually referring to the maximum value of G. AJAL.A.J- AP ECE UNIVERSAL ENGG COLLEGE

- 17. The bandwidth of an antenna expresses its ability to operate over a wide frequency range. It is often defined as the range over which the power gain is maintained to within 3dB of its maximum value, or the range over which the VSWR is no greater than 2:1, whichever is smaller. The bandwidth is usually given as a percentage of the nominal operating frequency. The radiation pattern of an antenna may change dramatically outside its specified operating bandwidth.

- 19. Reciprocity theorem: If a voltage is applied to the terminals of an antenna A and the current measured at the terminals of another antenna B then an equal current will be obtained at the terminals of antenna A if the same voltage is applied to the terminals of antenna B.

- 21. Effective Aperture If an antenna is used to receive a wave with a power density S [W m2], it will produce a power in its terminating impedance (usually a receiver input impedance) of Pr watts. The constant of proportionality between Pr and S is Ae, the effective aperture of the antenna in square metres: Pr = AeS For some antennas, such as horn or dish antennas, the aperture has an obvious physical interpretation, being almost the same as the physical area of the antenna, but the concept is just as valid for all antennas. The effective aperture may often be very much larger than the physical area, especially in the case of wire antennas. Note, however, that the effective aperture will reduce as the efficiency of an antenna decreases. The antenna gain G is related to the effective aperture as follows G=4pi/ (lamda)2Ae AJAL.A.J- AP ECE UNIVERSAL ENGG COLLEGE
