Event Details

Antennas, single elements and arrays, are ‘the electronic eyes and ears of the world.’ They are the transitional devices and transducers that convert, in the transmitting mode, guided waves to free-space waves; similarly, in the receiving mode, they transform free-space waves to guided waves. In addition to transmitting and receiving EM energy, advanced breakthrough designs for system optimization accentuate the radiation energy in some directions and suppress it in others. Thus, antennas also serve as directional devices, in addition to radiating elements. They are used in plethora of wireless applications ranging from personal, aerospace, and biomedical systems.  In this presentation, some of the fundamental parameters and figures-of-merit of antennas, used to describe and judge their performance and radiation characteristics, will be reviewed. This includes amplitude patterns, beamwidths, directivity, gain, realized gain and bandwidths. When reciprocity is applicable, the parameters are relevant in either the transmitting or receiving mode. They are based on the IEEE Standard Definitions of Terms for Antennas.
