With no loss in generality.

The four statements can be proved by applying Faraday's law. The tangential components of magnetic field intensity are discontinuous at the boundary by an amount equal to the surface-current density on the boundary.

There are four basic rules for boundary conditions at the surface between two different materials: Ampere's law. The normal components of magnetic flux density are continuous across the boundary. The tangential components of electric field intensity are continuous across the boundary. The normal components of electric flux density are discontinuous at the boundary by an amount equal to the surface-charge density on the boundary.

Gauss's law. In medium 1 the fields are the sum of an incident wave plus a reflected wave. This situation is shown in Fig. The simplest reflection problem is that of a uniform plane wave normally incident on a plane boundary between two dielectric media with no surface-charge density and surface-current density.

So the boundary equations are E. In medium 2 there are transmitted waves: E Is in the Plane of Incidence. The incident power density minus the transmitted power density would yield the reflected power density as Oblique-incidence reflection. The plane of incidence is defined by the di- rection of propagation and the line normal to the boundary. Whenever a wave is incident obliquely on the boundary surface between two media.

Transmitted wave z Figure Reflection and transmission of oblique incidence. The terms horizontal and vertical po- larization refer to the phenomenon of waves from horizontal and vertical antennas.

The linearly polarized uniform plane waves with E lying in and H normal to the plane of incidence are im- pinging obliquely on a boundary between two lossless dielectric materials as shown in Fig.

The polarization of a wave is an extremely useful concept for computing elec- tromagnetic power flow. For example. The wave impedance can be expressed in terms of the reflection coefficient of. This is From Eq. As Fig. For guided waves in waveguides. This is well known as Snell's law. Eo sin 8. If medium 2 is free space and medium I is a nonmagnetic dielectric. The preceding two equations are known as Fresnel's formulas for E in the plane of incidence.

Then the transmission coefficient is given by cos 0. If His in the plane of incidence.. H Is in the Plane of Incidence. The electron-density distribution of each layer varies with the time of day. Figure shows the wave components of electromag- netic wave from a nondirectional antenna to a receiving station.. Although important in many communication systems. For vertical incidence. The reflected wave is reflected from the earth in such a way as to reach the receiver.. During the day the electron density N is approximately 10 12 electrons per cubic meter at an altitude between 90 and km.

This region extends from about 50 km above the earth to several earth radii and has different layers designated as C. The surface wave is a wave diffracted. The ionosphere is that region of the earth's atmosphere in which the con- stituent gases are ionized by solar radiation. Hz This means that a microwave of frequency Fer will be reflected back to the earth if the electron density is equal to or higher than the required maximum electron den- sity Nmax electrons per cubic meter.

The electron density determines the reflection and refraction of microwaves. The ground wave is further divided into a direct wave. The E and Flayers have a permanent existence. The sky wave reaches the receiving station after reflection from the iono- sphere. Energy radiated from the nondirectional antenna of Fig.

When power radiates from the transmitting antenna. Receiving antenna antenna Transmitter Receiver Gr G. It can easily be found from the stan-. It is the only wave considered in this book. This compo- nent is important at broadcast frequencies. The direct wave travels a nearly straight path from the transmitting antenna to the re- ceiving station.

Pr Figure Electromagnetic energy transmission between two antennas. The termfree space will be used to denote vacuum or any other medium having essentially the same charac- teristics as vacuum. This component must be considered in blind-landing systems in which ranges of less than 2 km are important. If the received power is expressed in terms of decibels. It is simply a consequence of the fact that. It should be noted that the free-space attenuation is entirely different from the dissipative attenuation of a medium such as atmosphere that absorbs energy from the wave.

It does not imply that a higher-frequency wave decreases in magni- tude more rapidly than a lower-frequency wave.. The factor 47TR 2 in Eq. Hence the intrinsic impedance for a lossless dielectric can be ex- pressed in terms of air.

The presence of a loss in the medium introduces wave dispersion by con- ductivity. Dispersion makes a general solution in the time domain impossible except by Fourier expansion methods.

There are three types of lossy media: Thus only solutions for the frequency domain or steady state will be given.

This result indicates that copper is a perfect reflector for electromagnetic waves. The magnitudes of reflectivity of copper for vertical and horizontal polariza- tions are computed by Eqs.

This phase relationship is shown in Fig. When the conductivity cannot be neglected.. If the loss tangent is very small-that is. Horizontal polarization A wave incident on the boundary at an angle equal to or greater than the critical angle will be totally reflected. For total reflection L l we set. For vertical polarization. Hence the total reflection occurs only if the wave propagates from a dense medium into a less dense medium.

Voltage Max. The points of zero current are called the current nodes. On a lowloss line the ratio remains fairly constant. The standing-wave ratio cannot be defined on a lossy line because the standing-wave pattern changes markedly from one position to another.

When the standing-wave ratio is unity. That IS. It should be noted that since the standing-wave ratios of voltage and current are identical. The standing-wave ratio of a pure traveling wave is unity and that of a pure standing wave is infinite. The ratio of the maximum of the standing-wave pattern to the minimum is defined as the standing-wave ratio.

A number of impedance charts have been designed to facilitate the graphic solution of transmission-line problems.

To see how a Smith chart works. The reflection coefficient at any other location along a line as shown in Eq. JX and fc z. The solution of such problems is tedious and difficult because the accurate manipulation of numerous equations is necessary.

To simplify their solution. The chart is applicable to the analysis of a lossless line as well as a lossy line. The purpose of this section is to present the graphic solutions of transmission-line problems by using the Smith chart.

The most popular chart is that developed by Phillip H. Smith [l]. From Eqs. The Smith chart consists of a plot of the normalized impedance or admittance with the angle and magnitude of a generalized complex reflection coefficient in a unity circle.

Basically all the charts are derived from the fundamental relationships expressed in the transmission equations. All constant resistance circles are plotted in Fig. Figure Constant f circles and electrical-length radials f3d. Equation also describes a family of circles. Figure Constant reactance x circles. The lower half of the diagram represents. I max. The constant r and constant x loci form two families of orthogonal circles in the chart.

For admittance the constant r circles become constant g circles. Since the normalized admittance y is a reciprocal of the normalized impedance z.

When a normalized impedance z is located on the chart. The normalized impedance or admittance is repeated for every half wavelength of distance. The characteristics of the Smith chart are summarized as follows: This is evident since 1. The horizontal radius to the left of the chart center corresponds to Vmin.

The horizontal radius to the right of the chart center corresponds to Vmax. The distances are given in wavelengths toward the generator and also toward the load. The magnitude of the reflection coefficient is related to the standing-wave ratio by the following expression: The use of the Smith chart is illustrated in the following examples. Move a distance from the point at 0. Read 0. Suppose that the characteristic impedance of the line Ro is 50 fl.

The location intersected by the circle at the right portion of the real axis indicates the SWR. Impedance Determination with Short-Circuit Minima Shift The location of a minimum instead of a maximum is usually specified because it can be determined more accurately.

Figure shows the diagram for the example. Make a standing-wave circle with the center at 1. When the line is shorted. Microwave Transmission Lines 88 Chap. Determine the load impedance. When the load is shorted. Shmtod Diagram for Example A line terminated in its characteristic impedance has a standing-wave ratio of unity and transmits a given power without reflection. The distance between two successive minima is one-half wavelength. Matching devices are necessary to flatten the line..

A "flat" line is nonresonant. In transmission-line problems matching means simply terminating the line in its characteristic impedance. In circuit theory. Usually the input impedance to the antenna itself is not equal to the characteristic impedance of the line. Matching a transmission line has a special meaning. A complete matched transmission-line system is shown in Fig.

Standing waves lead to increased losses and frequently cause the transmitter to malfunction. When the line is loaded. A common application of RF transmission lines is the one in which there is a feeder connection between a transmitter and an antenna. Move a distance of 0. Draw a line from this point to the center of the chart. This condition is sometimes referred to as a conjugate match.

At every point the impedances looking in opposite directions are conjugate. The stub must be located at that point on the line where the real part of the admittance. At audio frequencies an ironcored transformer is almost universally used as an impedance-matching device. Matching can be tried first on the load side to flatten the line. Occasionally an iron-cored transformer is also used at radio frequencies. Since the matching problems involve parallel connections on the transmission line.

Short-circuited sections are preferable to open-circuited ones because a good short circuit is easier to obtain than a good open circuit. In a practical transmission-line system. Because of the variable loads. If Zo is real. Compute the normalized load admittance and enter it on the Smith chart see Fig. Otherwise The stub length is then adjusted so that its susceptance just cancels out the susceptance of the line at the junction.

The characteristic impedance of the stub is fl. Find the stub position closest to the load and length so that a match is obtained. The admittances must be converted to normalized values for matching on the Smith chart.

The length of the fixed section is usually one-eighth. Double-stub devices consist of two short-circuited stubs connected in parallel with a fixed length between them. Microwave Transmission Lines 92 Chap. The stub that is nearest the load is used to adjust the susceptance and is located at a fixed wavelength from the constant conductance.

It is clear that the stub and the portion of the line from the load to the junction are in parallel. If an inductive stub is required. Then Eq. Since the characteristic impedance of the stub is different from that of the line. Then the admittance of the line at the second stub as shown in Fig. If the positions and lengths of the stubs are chosen properly.

Compute the normalized load impedance ze and enter it on the chart as shown in Fig. The first stub is placed at 0. What terminations are forbidden for matching the line by the double-stub device? Solution I. Determine the length of the short-circuited stubs when the match is achieved. At the junction Move ye for a distance of 0. Now Y11 must be on this spacing circle.

So it is hard to describe a definite procedure for solving the double-matching problems. Normally the solution of a double-stub-matching problem can be worked out backward from the load toward the generator. The flexible coaxial lines are available in different types. The dielectric material used in these coaxial lines is polyethylene. The loss per unit length for foam polyethylene is even appreciably less than the equivalent solid polyethylene. In some coaxial cables.

Particularly for the RG series. It can be seen from Fig. That is In quite a few practical matching problems. Their diameters vary from 0. Since that time many modifications and new designs for microwave connectors have been proposed and developed. The connector provides repeatable connections and has a very low voltage standing-wave ratio VSWR. The BNC can accept flexible cables with diameters of up to 6. It is now the most commonly used connector for frequencies under 1 GHz.

Its VSWR is extremely low. TNC is not shown. The function of the thread is to stop radiation at higher frequencies. The connector is seldom used above 24 GHz because of higher-order modes. Seven types of microwave coaxial connectors are described below see Fig. The main application of SMA connectors is on components for microwave systems.

Maury Microwave also has an MPC series available. The connector operates very well at frequencies up to about 4 GHz. The connector is manufactured by Sealectro Corporation and can accept flexible cables with diameters of up to 3. The standardization of coaxial connectors during World War II was mandatory for microwave operation to maintain a low reflection coefficient or a low voltage standingwave ratio VSWR.

The connector provides a coupling mechanism without male or female distinction and is the most repeatable connecting device used for very accurate SO-ohm measurement applications. Either the male or female end of this ohm connector can mate with the opposite type of SMA connector. The APC J f Type Microwa ve coaxial connectors.

Problems A lossless transmission line has a characteristic impedance of 0 and is loaded by an unknown impedance. In waveguides the electric and magnetic fields are confined to the space within the guides. Thus no power is lost through radiation. At frequency range X band from 8. The dominant mode in a particular guide is the mode having the lowest cutofffrequency.

It is possible to propagate several modes of electromagnetic waves within a waveguide. It is advisable to choose the dimensions of a guide in such a way that. Otherwise the electromagnetic energy with a frequency below the cutoff frequency for that particular mode will be attenuated to a negligible value in a relatively short distance. These modes correspond to solutions of Maxwell's equations for particular waveguides. The process of solving the waveguide problems may involve three steps: Varian and S.

In R. Kompfner invented the helix-type traveling-wave tube TWT. In the past two decades, however, microwave solid-state devices—such as tunnel diodes, Gunn diodes, transferred electron devices TEDs , and avalanche transit-time devices have been developed to perform these functions. The conception and subsequent development of TEDs and avalanche transit-time devices were among the outstanding technical achievements.

Rid- ley and T. Watkins in and C. Hilsum in independently predicted that the transferred electron effect would occur in GaAs gallium arsenide.

In J. Figure shows a typical microwave system. In order to design a microwave system and conduct a proper test of it, an ade- quate knowledge of the components involved is essential. Besides microwave devices, the text therefore describes microwave components, such as resonators, cav- ities, microstrip lines, hybrids, and microwave integrated circuits. The meter-kilogram-second units the International System of Units are used throughout unless otherwise indicated. Table lists the most commonly used MKS units.

The physical constants commonly used in the text are listed in Table Many engineering computations use the absolute temperature in degrees Kelvin, and therefore a temperature conversion is necessary to convert the temperatures from either centigrade or Fahrenheit to Kelvin scale. It can be seen that From Eq. The unit of work or energy is called the electron volt eV , which means that if an electron falls through a potential of one volt, its kinetic energy will increase 1 eV.

Equation 1- is valid in regions in which there is space charge as well as in regions that are free of charge. The direction of the force is perpendicular to the plane of both v and B. This type of magnetic force is analogous to the problem of a mass tied to a rope and twirled around with constant velocity.

The force in the rope remains constant in magnitude and is always directed toward the center of the circle and thus is perpen- dicular to the motion. At any point on the circle the outward centrifugal force is equal to the pulling force. This means that faster-moving electrons or particles traverse larger circles in the same time that a slower-moving particle moves in a smaller circle. This very important result is the operating basis of such microwave devices as magnetic-focusing apparatus.

In microwave devices and circuits, however, only one dimension is involved in most cases. So the equations of motion become simple and can easily be solved. An ex- ample may show how to solve some of the preceding equations. Example Electron Motion in an Electromagnetic Field The inner cylinder of radius a is the cathode and the outer shell with radius b is the anode.

Solution 1. Write the equations of motion for electrons in cylindrical coordinates. From b Application of the boundary conditions: The cutoff voltage is e a2 2 V0. Van Nostrand Company, Princeton, N. Prentice- Hall, Inc. Determine which electrode the electron will strike. Compute the kinetic energy of the electron in electronvolts eV when it strikes the electrode. A circular cavity is constructed of a center conductor and an outer conductor.

The in- ner center conductor has a radius of 1 cm and is grounded. The electrons are emit- ted from the cathode at the center conductor and move toward the anode at the outer conductor. Here electromagnetic plane waves are described in detail. The principles of electromagnetic plane waves are based on the relationships between electricity and magnetism.

A plane wave has a plane front, a cylindrical wave has a cylindrical front, and a spherical wave has a spherical front. The front of a wave is sometimes referred to as an equiphase surface.

This type of wave is known as the transverse electromagnetic TEM wave. If only the transverse electric wave exists, the wave is called TE-mode wave. That means there is no component of the electric wave in the direction of propagation.

In TM modes only the transverse magnetic wave exists. Alternatively, J0 is often the current on a surface or in a region . In most cases, however, the current density source J0 may not exist. H J. V X H Substitution of Eq. Re represents the real part of the complex power, and the asterisk indicates the complex conjugate. The left-hand side of Eq.

Furthermore, let Pi,. A uniform plane wave is a wave whose magnitude and phase are both constant. A spherical wave in free space is a uniform plane wave as observed at a far distance. Its equi- phase surfaces are concentric spheres, expanding as the wave travels outward from the source, and its magnitude is constant.

Electromagnetic waves in free space are typical uniform plane waves. Thus a uniform plane wave is a transverse electromag- netic wave or a TEM wave. A nonuniform plane wave is a wave whose amplitude not phase may vary within a plane normal to the direction of propagation. Figure shows uniform electric and magnetic plane waves in rectangular coordinates.

There are four basic rules for boundary conditions at the surface between two different materials: The normal components of electric flux density are discontinuous at the boundary by an amount equal to the surface-charge density on the boundary.

The simplest reflection problem is that of a uniform plane wave normally incident on a plane boundary between two dielectric media with no surface-charge density and surface-current density.

This situation is shown in Fig. In medium 2 there are transmitted waves: E Is in the Plane of Incidence. The linearly polarized uniform plane waves with E lying in and H normal to the plane of incidence are im- pinging obliquely on a boundary between two lossless dielectric materials as shown in Fig.The voltage and current may be expressed as real functions of time and space: The light transmittance T is estimated from Fig.

November This phase relationship is shown in Fig. The connector is manufactured by Sealectro Corporation and can accept flexible cables with diameters of up to 3.
