1 ECE 3030 Electromagnetic Fields and Waves Fall 2009 Lecture 30 2009/11/6 Two Hertzian Dipole Arrays Interference Patterns Fa Field Gain y z x 1 J 2 J 1 Swartz 06/5/25 Electromagnetic Fields and Waves – Fall 2009 Lecture 30: Instructor: Dr. Wesley E. Swartz Far-Field Gain Reflecting Planes Antenna Arrays Defined An antenna array consists of multiple sub-antennas. Usually the sub-antennas are all the same (only case we will consider here). We will call these sub-antennas “ elements ”. Why have multiple elements? How is gain or beam pattern affected? More power can be sent in one direction versus some other direction. 2 Swartz 06/5/25 Electromagnetic Fields and Waves – Fall 2009 Lecture 30: Nulls in pattern can be placed to reduce interferrence. The Jicamarca example: Basic element: a dipole. 64 th : an array of 12 dipoles by 12 dipoles. Full antenna array: 8 – 64 ths by 8 – 64 ths , i.e., 64 – 64 ths , all over a reflecting screen.
