Analysis of the radiation efficiency of a horizontal electric dipole on a grounded dielectric slab

Abstract

The radiation efficiency of a horizontal infinitesimal electric dipole on a grounded dielectric slab as a function of its electrical thickness is investigated thoroughly. It is shown that, in contrast to a common belief, the efficiency does not decay monotonically with increasing electrical thickness (or, equivalently, with increasing frequency for a givenโ€ฆย (More)
