Crosscorrelation formulation of the complex power from planar apertures
Abstract
A novel formulation of the complex power radiated from planar antenna apertures is presented in terms of the crosscorrelation functions of the aperture fields. The analysis makes use of the Fourier transform relationship between the crosscorrelation function and the cross spectral power density. We start with the wellknown Poynting vector integration which involves plane wave intrinsic impedances and which can be given in five different forms according to the choice of the field representation. Through simple mathematical manipulations we arrive at the crosscorrelation form which is applicable not only to simple apertures but also to nonperiodic as well as periodic arrays either with or without dielectric sheets. This formulation is specially useful in analyzing aperture problems having a statistical nature where the conventional Poynting vector approach is not directly applicable.
