The object of this investigation is a study of the electromagnetic field produced by a diffraction antenna in the form of a circular gap made in a conducting plane. An e.m.f. is applied across the gap. The method of investigation is based on the classical diffraction theory by Fresnel and Kirchhoff. The expressions for E and H are obtained and applied to the calculation of electric field intensity at a great distance, and the directive patterns are plotted. The current distribution in the… CONTINUE READING
