Approximation of antenna patterns by means of a combination of Gaussian beams
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Modeling of electromagnetic wave propagation in terms of Gaussian beams (GBs) has been considered in recent years. The incident radiation is expanded in terms of GBs by means of the point matching method. The simultaneous equations can be solved directly to produce excitation coefficients that generate the approximate pattern of a known antenna. Two different types of antenna patterns have been approximated in terms of GBs: a truncated antenna pattern and a hyperbolic antenna pattern. The influence of the Gaussian beam parameters on the approximation process is clarified.
