EE 222 Antenna Theory and Design



Fundamental antenna system parameters: gain, directivity, efficiency, input impedance, radiation pattern. Theory of transmitting and receiving antennas: reciprocity, equivalence, and induction theorems. Elementary antennas: dipole, monopole, loop, traveling-wave antennas. Antenna arrays: linear and phased arrays, mutual impedance. Antenna design: log- periodic, reflector, and (corrugated) horn antennas and microstrip, integrated, and on-chip antennas. Computer aided design: student projects using antenna simulation tools.
