On the Lower Bound of the Radiation Q for Electrically Small Antennas

Abstract

The fundamental question of the lower bound on the radiation Q of an electrically small antenna is of practical importance because of its relationship to the antenna bandwidth. Previous works predict a lower bound on the radiation Q that is usually too low and, hence, a bandwidth that can be optimistically large. This paper addresses why this is so and… (More)
