The Hertzian dipole, uniform line element, and small linear dipole examples do not

16 satisfy Eq. (16.1.2), except when the antenna length is electrically short, that is, l .

For loop antennas, we may take the loop to lie on the xy-plane and be centered at the

origin. Again, we may assume a thin wire. For a circular loop of radius a, the current

coordinates r = (, , z) as:

I( a)(z)

J(r)= (circular loop) (16.1.3)

The delta functions conne the current on the = a circle on the xy-plane. We will

discuss loop antennas in Sec. 16.8.

Antenna arrays may be formed by considering a group of antenna elements, such as

Hertzian or half-wave dipoles, arranged in particular geometrical congurations, such

For linear antennas, we may choose the z-axis to be along the direction of the an- n

It is evident now from Eq. (16.1.1) that the radiation vector F will have only a z-

component. Indeed, we have from the denition Eq. (14.7.5):

where I(z) is the current distribution along the antenna element. It is shown in Sec. 21.4

I(z)= I [u(z + l/2)u(z l/2)] For a general dipole of length l, the current at the input terminals of the antenna is

not necessarily equal to the peak amplitude I. Indeed, setting z = 0 in (16.3.1) we have:

The Hertzian dipole may be thought of as the limiting case of this example in the limit

In mobile applications in the 30 cm or 1 GHz band, the antenna length will be fairly

small, /4 = 7.5 cm. The roof of a car plays the role of the conducting plane in this

case.

We note also in Fig. 16.4.2 that the l = 1.25 = 10/8 dipole has the largest gain. It

can be used as a monopole in mobile applications requiring higher gains. Such antennas

are called 5/8-wave monopoles because their length is l/2 = 5/8.
