Manipulation of Characteristic Wave Modes by Impedance Loading

  title={Manipulation of Characteristic Wave Modes by Impedance Loading},
  author={Eugen Safin and Dirk Manteuffel},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation},
The influence of the antenna impedance loading on the characteristic wave modes is investigated and evaluated. It is shown that the eigenvalue behavior of the characteristic modes can be modified by impedance loading at specific positions on the antenna. Thereby, it is possible to manipulate certain modes such that they resonate in the desired frequency band. These modes can then effectively be excited to achieve the desired antenna performance. It is found that using characteristic wave modes… CONTINUE READING
