Antennas in Plasma: Characteristics as Functions of Frequency


  • K. G. Balmain


The literature on the subject is reviewed under the headings: anisotropic (cold) electron plasma, isotropic (warm) electron plasma, loop antennas, resonance rectification, and ion effects. Though the gap between theory and experiment has narrowed for most of these topics, understanding is still unsatisfactory at lower frequencies where ion motion cannot be neglected.
