Abstract:

This report documents a set of computer programs for plasma effects on one-dimensional slot antennas in planar, cylindrical and spherical surfaces. The plasma in each case is assumed to have electron density variation only in the normal direction. The programs calculate radiation pattern, input impedance and noise temperature as generated by the plasma. Various generalizations, which can be calculated by minor changes to the programs, are described. Author
