Theoretical analysis of the radiation fields of short backfire antenna fed by a coaxial waveguide

Abstract

This paper present a study of characteristics of the radiation from a coaxialwaveguide as an antenna and a short backfire antenna (SBFA) fed by this coaxialwaveguide. It is shown that the performance of such antenna is preferable incomparison with that fed by a circular waveguide, and a good agreement has beenobtained between the predicated results and those reported by other research workers.
