The electromagnetic field emitted by a pulsed current traveling along finite, straight wires above the interface of a two-media configuration


  • B. J. Kooij


The electromagnetic radiation due to a pulsed traveling wave current along a polygon wire structure located above a lossless half-space is investigated. The Cagniard-de Hoop technique with polar variables is used in order to derive closed form expressions for the electric field in the two-media configuration. Numerical results for the electric field above a lossless half-space are presented for a four wire polygon structure in which a known traveling wave current is present.
