ELEN426 - Antennas-Theory and Applications


This course is an in-depth coverage of the basic properties of antenna theory, analysis, and design. Topics covered include radiation patterns; antenna gain and directivity; antenna main lobe and side lobe levels and shaping; system losses; and antenna impedances. Different types of antennas including linear dipoles; horns; slot antennas; and linear and planar array antennas will be examined. Students will be introduced to numerical methods for analysis and modeling as well as the effects of RF frequency on antenna design. NOTE: This course requires the student to purchase additional materials that are not covered by the book grant. Please refer to the Course Materials section for additional details. Prerequisites: ELEN420
