Three descriptors of antenna performance appropriate for ultrawide-band (UWB) applications are proposed and described: energy pattern, correlated energy pattern, and correlation coefficient pattern. The parameters are indicative of how a particular antenna will behave with a receiver employing correlation detection of broadband pulses. Numerical simulations of canonical dipole antennas demonstrate the significance of these parameters. In particular, there are substantial differences between… CONTINUE READING
