Analysis and synthesis of an impedanceloaded loop antenna using the singularity expansion method
Abstract
The singularity expansion method may be used to significantly simplify the calculation and synthesis of the response of a transmitting loop antenna excited by an electromagnetic pulse. A compact representation of the loop antenna in terms of its poles and zeros is derived. The resulting time domain description of the loop response are terms involving the residues, the excitation, and the exponentially damped sinusoids whose complex frequencies are the pole frequencies. These poles or natural frequencies are the frequencies at which radiation from a scatterer or antenna can take place without an applied excitation. The possible use of the singularity expansion method to synthesize radiated time domain waveforms by uniformly loading a loop antenna is investigated.
