1 ECE 303 – Fall 2005 – Farhan Rana – Cornell University Lecture 29 The Hertzian Dipole Antenna In this lecture you will learn: • Hertzian dipole antenna • Gain and radiation pattern of an antenna ECE 303 – Fall 2005 – Farhan Rana – Cornell University Hertzian Dipole Antenna - Review • A Hertzian dipole is represented by an arrow whose direction indicates the positive direction of the current and also the orientation of the dipole in space • By assumption, the size of the dipole is much smaller than the wavelength of the emitted radiation, i.e. d << λ x z d q ( t ) -q ( t ) x z I ( t ) In phasor notation • Because d << , the current density associated with the dipole is represented mathematically as a delta function with an appropriate weight () ( ) α ω + = t I t I o cos ( ) ( ) r e d I z r J j o r r r 3 ˆ δ =
