ecture 1 Lecture 14 • Antenna Radiation Resistance ipole Antennas • Dipole Antennas • Large Aperture Antenna • Rectangular Aperture with Uniform Field Distribution
Beam Dimensions Pattern Solid Angle is defined as:  ) , ( d F p 4 For isotropic (omni-directional) antennas, 4 1 ) , ( p F Meaning of solid angle p for a directive antenna is equivalent to an antenna with a uniform radiation pattern within a cone of solid angle p

Directivity Directivity is defined as the ratio of its maximum radiation density to the average density, e.g. S ax S R S ax 2 ax 4 P d av S D max rad rad P R P max 2 max 4 / 2 4 R S rad av (total radiated power is sum 2  4 max 2 ) , ( d F S R P rad As we also have, of the power radiated in every direction) p rad av d F S R S R R P S S S D  4 ) , ( 4 4 / 4 max 2 max 2 max max Thus,  ) , ( d F p Solid angle For isotropic case, 1 4 iso p D 4 ) , ( ) , ( max F D D For arbitrary direction, one may also define directivity for each directions as, Original definition f D is for D of D is for D max
Antenna Gain How much a directive antenna helps in improving the received (or radiated) signal strength, in comparison to an ideal, lossless omni-directional antenna? in P S R G max 2 4 Antenna Gain is defined as Gain: Directivity considering loss, Dielectric loss, conductor ss mismatch If we define radiation efficiency in rad r P P loss, mismatch … rad P S R D max 2 4 D G r   Previously, we have 1 r G G dB log 10 D D B log 10 Directivity and Gain in Log scale, In reality, we always dB dBi, unit using isotropic reference have G < D dBd, unit using half-wave dipole reference
