Radiation and propagation of electromagnetic pulses
Abstract
Some examples of direct timedomain calculations of electromagnetic and acoustic pulsed phenomena are worked out. Cagniard's method for inversion of time harmonic results is illustrated with an example of the radiation of electromagnetic pulses from an idealized aperture antenna, and extensions of the method to pulse propagation problems in dielectric waveguides and across nonplanar dielectric boundary surfaces are given. The singularity expansion method is introduced and applied to the description of the time and frequency behavior of wideband linear antenna arrays.
