Consider a circular wire loop of radius a carrying a time-harmonic current I = I o cos ( t ) and radiating in a homogeneous medium of electric permittivity and magnetic permeability . The loop is placed on the xy-plane of the reference coordinate system, with its center at the origin. The current flow in the loop is in the counterclockwise direction when looking down on xy-plane in- z direction. It can be shown 1 that if the loop is small enough (i.e., in the limit as a ) the retarded vector potential phasor is given by A ( r, ) = I o a 2 4 r e- jkr jk + 1 r sin where k = . a) Calculate the magnetic and electric field phasors H and E of the small loop antenna starting with B = H = A , and also using H = J + j E where J = 0 . b) Using the expressions derived above in the limit as r , show that the radiation fields of the loop antenna are given by...
