Currents and Charges Induced in an Arbitrarily Oriented Electrically Thin Conductor with Length up to One and One-Half Wavelengths in a Plane-Wave Field Academic Article uri icon


  • Distributions of induced current and charge per unit length are displayed for electrically thin antennas not longer than one and one-half wavelengths that are illuminated by an incident plane wave. It is shown that the distributions of current and charge have significant even and odd parts which vary with the angle of incidence.
