ABSTRACT

Wireless technology is one of the main areas of research in the world of communication

systems today and a study of communication systems is incomplete without an understanding

of the operation and fabrication of antennas. This was the main reason for our selecting a

project focusing on this field.

Antennas can be classified in several ways. One way is the frequency band of operation.

Others include physical structure and electrical/electromagnetic design. The antennas

commonly used for both at base stations and mobile units—represent only a very small

portion of all the antenna types

Backward radiations from an antenna can be eliminated by using plane conducting sheets as

reflectors. When two flat sheets intersecting at an angle α are used as reflectors, then such an

arrangement is called corner reflector. Corner reflectors are of two types.

When two flat sheets intersecting at an angle α < 180° , aperture should be in the range of 1λ

to 2λ.

When two metal sheets intersecting at an angle α = 90° without any driven element used.

INTRODUCTION

REFLECTORS:

Reflector antennas, in one form or another, have been in use since the discovery of

electromagnetic wave propagation in 1888 by Hertz. However the fine art of analysing and

designing reflectors of many various geometrical shapes did not forge ahead until the days of

World War II when numerous radar applications evolved. Subsequent demands of reflectors

for use in radio astronomy, microwave communication, and satellite tracking resulted in

spectacular progress in the development of sophisticated analytical and experimental

techniques in shaping the reflector surfaces and optimizing illumination over their apertures

so as to maximize the gain. The use of reflector antennas for deep-space communication,

such as in the space program and especially their deployment on the surface of the moon,

resulted in establishing the reflector antenna almost as a household word during the 1960s.

Although reflector antennas take many geometrical configurations, some of the most popular

shapes are the plane, corner, and curved reflectors (especially the paraboloid)

PLANE REFLECTOR

The simplest type of reflector is a plane reflector introduced to direct energy in a desired

direction. The arrangement is that shown in Figure which has been extensively analyzed in

Section 4.7 when the radiating source is a vertical or horizontal linear element. It has been

clearly demonstrated that the polarization of the radiating source and its position relative to

the reflecting surface can be used to control the radiating properties (pattern, impedance,

directivity) of the overall system. Image theory has been used to analyze the radiating

characteristics of such a system. Although the infinite dimensions of the plane reflector are

idealized, the results can be used as approximations for electrically large surfaces. The

perturbations introduced by keeping the dimensions finite can be accounted for by using

special methods such as the Geometrical Theory of Diffraction[2] –[5]

SOFTWARE DESCRIPTION

MATLAB

and fourth-generation programming language. A proprietary programming

language developed by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix manipulations, plotting

offunctions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and

interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++,

C#, Java, Fortran and Python.

Antenna Toolbox™ provides functions for the design, analysis, and visualization of antenna

elements and arrays. You can design standalone antennas and build linear, rectangular, and

conformal arrays of antennas using predefined elements with parameterized geometry or

custom elements.

Antenna Toolbox uses the method of moments (MoM) to compute port properties such as

impedance, surface properties such as current and charge distribution, and field properties

such as the near-field and far-field radiation pattern. You can visualize antenna geometry and

analysis results in 2D and 3D.

You can integrate antennas and arrays into wireless systems, and use impedance analysis to

design matching networks. Antenna Toolbox provides radiation patterns for simulating beam

forming algorithms.

With Antenna Toolbox, you can design linear, rectangular, and conformal antenna arrays.

You can choose the antenna element from the available catalog or import custom antenna

elements, define the spacing between elements, and specify the layout of the array.

Antenna array layouts that can be specified with Antenna Toolbox. Linear array of microstrip

patch antennas (top left), rectangular array dipole antennas with arbitrary spacing between

elements (top right), and turnstile (crossed dipole) antenna built as an array of two dipole

elements vertically stacked (bottom).

10

Antenna Toolbox uses the method of moments to analyze antenna elements and antenna

arrays. You can compute port properties such as impedances, S-parameters, and voltage

standing wave ratios (VSWR) to determine the resonance frequency of antennas or to study

impedance matching conditions. Current and charge distributions on the surface of an

antenna can be computed at different frequencies and then visualized. You can also inspect

and control the density of the mesh used for the analysis.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

CORNER REFLECTOR

To better collimate the energy in the forward direction, the geometrical shape of the plane

reflector itself must be changed so as to prohibit radiation in the back and side directions.

One arrangement which accomplishes that consists of two plane reflectors joined so as to

form a corner, as shown in Figures 15.1(b) and in 15.2(a). This is known as the corner

reflector. Because of its simplicity in construction, it has many unique applications. For

example, if the reflector is used as a passive target for radar or communication applications, it

will return the signal exactly in the same direction as it received it when its included angle is

90◦. This is illustrated geometrically in Figure . Because of this unique feature, military ships

and vehicles are designed with minimum sharp corners to reduce their detection by enemy

radar. Corner reflectors are also widely used as receiving elements for home television.

In most practical applications, the included angle formed by the plates is usually 90◦;

however other angles are sometimes used. To maintain a given system efficiency, the spacing

between the vertex and the feed element must increase as the included angle of the reflector

decreases, and vice versa. For reflectors with infinite sides, the gain increases as the included

angle between the planes decreases. This, however, may not be true for finite size plates. For

simplicity, in this chapter it will be assumed that the plates themselves are infinite in extent (l

=∞). However, since in practice the dimensions must be finite, guidelines on the size of the

aperture (Da), length (l), and height (h) will be given. The feed element for a corner reflector

is almost always a dipole or an array of collinear dipoles placed parallel to the vertex a

distance s away, as shownin a perspective view in Figure ©. Greater bandwidth is obtained

when the feed elements are cylindrical or biconical dipoles instead of thin wires. In many

applications, especially when the wavelength is large compared to tolerable physical

dimensions, the surfaces of the corner reflector are frequently made of grid wires rather than

solid sheet metal, as shown in Figure (d). One of the reasons for doing that is to reduce wind

resistance and overall system weight. The spacing (g) betweenwires is made a small

fractionof a wavelength (usually g ≤ λ/10). For wires that are parallel to the length of the

dipole, as is the case for the arrangement of Figure (d), the reflectivity of the grid-wire

surface is as good as that of a solid surface.

12

Side and perspective views of solid and wire- grid corner reflectors

In practice, the aperture of the corner reflector (Da) is usually made betweenon e and two

wavelengths (λ < Da < 2λ). The length of the sides of a 90◦ corner reflector is most

commonly taken to be about twice the distance from the vertex to the feed (l 2s). For

reflectors with smaller included angles, the sides are made larger. The feed-tovertex distance

(s) is usually takento be between λ/3 an d 2λ/3(λ/3 < s < 2λ/3). For each reflector, there is an

optimum feed-to-vertex spacing. If the spacing becomes too small, the radiationresistan ce

decreases and becomes comparable to the loss resistance of the system which leads to an

inefficient antenna. For very large spacing, the system produces undesirable multiple lobes,

and it loses its directional characteristics. It has been experimentally observed that increasing

the size of the sides does not greatly affect the beamwidth and directivity, but it increases the

bandwidth and radiation resistance.

13

The mainlobe is somewhat broader for reflectors with finite sides compared to that of

infinite dimensions. The height (h) of the reflector is usually takento be about 1.2 to

1.5 times greater thanthe total length of the feed element, inorder to reduce radiation

toward the back regionfrom the ends.

The analysis for the field radiated by a source in the presence of a corner reflector

is facilitated when the included angle (α) of the reflector is α = π/n, where n is an

integer (α = π, π/2, π/3, π/4, etc.). For those cases (α = 180◦, 90◦, 60◦, 45◦, etc.) it is possible

to find a system of images, which whenproperly placed inthe absence of the reflector plates,

form anarray that yields the same field within the space formed by the reflector plates as the

actual system. The number of images, polarity, and position of each is controlled by the

included angle of the corner reflector and the polarization of the feed element. In Figure 15.3

we display the geometrical and electrical arrangement of the images for corner reflectors with

included angles of 90◦ , 60◦ , 45◦, an d 30◦ and a feed with perpendicular polarization. The

procedure for finding the number, location, and polarity of the images is demonstrated

graphically in Figure 15.4 for a corner reflector with a 90◦ included angle. It is assumed that

the feed element is a linear dipole placed parallel to the vertex. A similar procedure canbe

followed for all other reflectors with an included angle of α = 180◦ /n, where n is anin teger.

14

The first corner reflector to be analyzed is the one with an included angle of 90◦. Because its

radiationcharacteristics are the most attractive, it has become the most popular.

Referring to the reflector of Figure (c) with its images in Figure (b), the total field of the

system can be derived by summing the contributions from the feed and its images. Thus

E(r, θ, φ) = E1(r1, θ,φ) + E2(r2, θ,φ) + E3(r3, θ,φ) + E4(r4, θ,φ) (1)

where

cosψ1 = ˆax · ˆar = sin θ cos φ (2a)

cosψ2 = ˆay · ˆar = sin θ sin φ (2b)

cosψ3 = −ˆax · ˆar = −sin θ cos φ (2c)

cosψ4 = −ˆay · ˆar = −sin θ sin φ (2d)

15

since ˆar = ˆax sin θ cos φ + ˆay sin θ sin φ + ˆaz cos θ. Equation(2) can also be written, using

(2a)–(2d), as

E(r, θ, φ) = 2[cos(ks sin θ cos φ) − cos(ks sin θ sin φ)]f (θ,φ)e−jkr/r (3)

where for α = π/2 = 90◦

0 ≤ θ ≤ π,

0 ≤ φ ≤ α/2

2π − α/2 ≤ φ ≤ 2π (3a)

Letting the field of a single isolated (radiating in free-space) element to be

E0 = f (θ,φ)e−jkr/r (4)

(3) canbe re written as

E/E0 = AF(θ, φ) = 2[cos(ks sin θ cos φ) − cos(ks sin θ sin φ)] (5)

Equation (5) represents not only the ratio of the total field to that of an isolated element at the

origin but also the array factor of the entire reflector system. In the azimuthal plane (θ = π/2),

(5) reduces to

E/E0 = AF(θ = π/2, φ) = 2[cos(ks cos φ) − cos(ks sin φ)] (6)

16

To gain some insight into the performance of a corner reflector, in Figure we display the

normalized patterns for an α = 90◦ corner reflector for spacings of s = 0.1λ, 0.7λ, 0.8λ, 0.9λ,

an d 1.0λ. It is evident that for the small spacings the pattern consists of a single major lobe

whereas multiple lobes appear for the larger spacings (s > 0.7λ). For s = λ the pattern exhibits

two lobes separated by a null along the φ = 0◦ axis.

Another parameter of performance for the corner reflector is the field strength along the

symmetry axis (θ = 90◦ , φ = 0◦ ) as a function of feed-to-vertex distance s [6]. The

normalized (relative to the field of a single isolated element) absolute field strength

|E/E0| as a function of s/λ(0 ≤ s ≤ 10λ) for α = 90◦ is shownplotted in Figure . It is apparent

that the first field strength peak is achieved when s = 0.5λ, and it is equal to 4. The field is

also periodic with a period of 3s/λ = 1.

A similar procedure canbe used to derive the array factors and total fields for all other corner

reflectors with included angles of α = 180◦/n. Referring to Figure 15.3, it can be shownthat

the array factors for α = 60◦, 45◦, an d 30◦ canbe written as

17

Where

These are assigned, at the end of the chapter, as exercises to the reader (Problem 15.2).

For a corner reflector with an included angle of α = 180◦/n, n = 1, 2, 3, . . ., the number of

images is equal to N = (360/α) − 1 = 2n − 1. It has also been shown [7] by using long filament

wires as feeds, that the azimuthal plane (θ = π/2) array factor for corner reflectors with α =

180◦ /n, where n is an integer, canalso be writtenas

n = even (n = 2, 4, 6, . . .)

AF(φ) = 4n(−1)n/2[Jn(ks) cos(nφ) + J3n(ks) cos(3nφ)+ J5n(ks) cos(5nφ)+· · ·]

n = odd (n = 1, 3, 5, . . .)

AF(φ) = 4nj (−1)(n−1)/2[Jn(ks) cos(nφ) − J3n(ks) cos(3nφ)+ J5n(ks) cos(5nφ)+· · ·]

where Jm(x) is the Bessel function of the first kind of order m (see Appendix V). When n is

not an integer, the field must be found by retaining a sufficient number of terms of the infinite

series. It has also been shown [7] that for all values of n = m (integral or fractional) that the

field can be written as

AF(φ) = 4m[ejmπ/2Jm(ks) cos(mφ) + ej3mπ/2J3m(ks) cos(3mφ)+· · ·] The array factor for a

corner reflector, as given by above equations, has a form that is similar to the array factor for

a uniform circular array.This should be expected since the feed sources and their images in

Figure form a circular array. The number of images increase as the included angle of the

corner reflector decreases. Patterns have been computed for corner reflectors with included

angles of 60◦, 45◦, and 30◦. It has been found that these corner reflectors have also single-

lobed patterns for the smaller values of s, and they become narrower as the included angle

decreases. Multiple lobes beginto appear when

s = 0.95λ for α = 60◦

s =1.2λ for α = 45◦

s =2.5λ for α = 30◦

The field strength along the axis of symmetry (θ = 90◦, φ = 0◦) as a function of the feed-to-

vertex distance s, has been computed for reflectors with included angles of α = 60◦ , 45◦, an d

30◦ . The results for α = 45◦ are showninFigure 15.7 for 0 ≤ s ≤ 10λ. For reflectors with α =

90◦ and 60◦, the normalized field strength is periodic with periods of λ and 2λ, respectively.

However, for the 45◦ and 30◦ reflectors the normalized field is not periodic but rather “almost

18

periodic” or “pseudoperiodic” . For the 45◦ and 30◦ reflectors the arguments of the

trigonometric functions representing the arrays factors, and given by (15-8)–(15-9b), are

related by irrational numbers and therefore the arrays factors do not repeat. However, when

plotted they look very similar. Therefore when examined only graphically, the observer

erroneously may conclude that the patterns are periodic (because they look so much the

same). However, when the array factors are examined analytically it is concluded that the

functions are not periodic but rather nearly periodic. The field variations are “nearly similar”

inform inthe range 3s 16.69λ for the α = 45◦ and 3s 30λ for the α = 30◦.

It has also been found that the maximum field strength increases as the included angle of the

reflector decreases. This is expected since a smaller angle reflector exhibits better directional

characteristics because of the narrowness of its angle. The maximum values of |E/E0| for α =

60◦ , 45◦, an d30◦ are approximately 5.2, 8, and 9, respectively. The first field strength peak,

but not necessarily the ultimate maximum, is achieved when

s= 0.65λ for α = 60◦

s= 0.85λ for α = 45◦

s= 1.20λ for α = 30◦
