Sample text

This introduction has merely pointed out the presence and treatment of surface waves that may exist below resonance for finite periodic structures. An in-depth investigation will be given in Chapter 4 where we will rely entirely on rigorously calculated examples. 1 Consider a phased array with scan impedance ZA = 200 ohms. It is being fed from a generator with impedance ZG as shown in Fig. 6a. Assume conjugate match—that is, ZG = ZA = 200 ohms. As shown in Chapter 4, each of the two surface waves are generated from semi-infinite arrays located adjacent to the finite array.

Right: the terminals are short-circuited, that is, = −1. 2), namely that an array without a groundplane has about as much residual as antenna mode scattering. Next we consider the case where ZL is conjugate-matched to the antenna impedance ZA . Thus, the reflection coefficient at the array terminals is = 0, and the backscatter from the array is simply proportional to C = −1. Finally we consider the case to the right in Fig. 8. We have here loaded the array at its terminals with short circuits; thus = −1 as indicated in the Smith chart underneath the array.

Finally, we show a polar plot of the far field obtained by simple aperture integration. Comparing the infinite and finite cases we observe that the former has an “infinite narrow” beam (like a Dirac-Delta function) in the direction rˆ (0, 0) while the latter exhibits the well known far field pattern. At the array elements they both look similar except that the finite case shows ripples along the aperture as caused by the presence of surface waves as discussed in Chapters 1, 4 and 5. We emphasize again: Fig.
