ECE 450 Homework 13 Due: Tue, Dec 1, 2009, 5 PM 1. Rectangular waveguides are being used to construct the feed network of antenna arrays. The picture on the left below depicts such a feed network for a Ka-band multi-beam antenna (courtesy Alenia Spazio). The transition from the waveguide cross-section to the aperture that serves as the radiating antenna has to be properly designed to minimize reflection, thus ensuring that most of the time- average power carried by the waveguide is radiated. Assuming that such a transition is not available and that the open end of a rectangular waveguide is used as the aperture antenna (see figure on the right above), calculate, approximately, the % of time-average incident power that gets radiated out of the rectangular waveguide operated at the TE10 mode. The waveguide is air filled, with cross-sectional dimensions a = 10 cm and b = 4 cm. The operating frequency is set at 1.5 times the cuto ff frequency of the TE10 mode. (Hint: Neglecting the electromagnetic wave di ff

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
