Abstract

In this small work our purpose is to analysis the aperture antenna
and its parameters under the concept of dimensions and the wavelength
ratio . and see how the radiation behave when this ratio is changed from
lower to higher values .
After that we will explain this results physically by using the
concepts of diffraction and scattering phenomena at the wall edges of the
aperture antenna.

By using MATLAB we simulate the results and we see if they
matches the theoretical concept or not .

introduction:

this world contains very amazing fundamental concepts , which
occur under highly organized manner can be formulated mathematically.
Every physical concept that happens in this world can be understand it by
using mathematical formulas . the electromagnetic theory is very
important concepts in the field of physics and it is fundamental reality in
the field of communication ( antennas transmission , radar , …) .

the electromagnetic theory describes how the electric and magnetic
fields interact with itselfs and how they interact with time and space ; the
interaction with time and space contains the concept of the wave
propagation , and the concept of the relativistic between time , space , and
energy contains the concept of relativistic theory (( Einstein's relativistic
theory )) and all concepts of electromagnetic theory are described by
Maxwell equations.
the communication antennas are devices that transmit and receive
electromagnetic waves , the purpose of building antennas is to make the
theory of electromagnetic under human control in order to enhance
science and technologies and make our life easy in all different fields. To
do all this we have to build antennas with some specified parameters and
with high performance.

1.2 Circular apertures antenna:
A widely used microwave antenna is the
circular aperture. One of the attractive
features of this conﬁguration is its
closed form expressions for the fields of
all the modes that can exist over the
aperture can be obtained.
To demonstrate the methods, the field
radiated by a circular aperture mounted on
an inﬁnite ground plane will be formulated.

3.1 the concept of sinc and dirac impulse

In our aperture antenna we have this term

sin ⁡()
=
sin ⁡(

sin ⁡())

sin ⁡()

sin⁡() so we have the following
amazing result

When

1 = 0
0

This results means that when the dimension of the aperature is larger than
the wave length the radiation pattern will concentrate only at the origin
and is neglected (zero) elsewhere.

To perform that lets do some simulation by using circular aperture.

3.2 simulation results

For a=100λ we have the following result

So we have gotten a results that matches the theoretical concepts

Conclusion

The radiation pattern of any antenna source it depend on the
antenna geometry and the length of the wavelength that is radiated by this
antenna, because the electromagnetic wave is always effected by the
obstacles under the concept of reflection, refraction, diffraction and
scattering phenomena. And this for main phenomena are related to the
concept of the wavelength and the dimension of the obstacles.

When the electromagnetic waves is radiated by an aperature
antenna a diffraction and scattering phenomena at the edges is occurred ,
this diffraction and scattering will be high when ≅ and in this case
the wave will spread everywhere and side lobes will be high in large
distance, at the case when ≫ the diffraction will not occur at the
edges so radiation will keep traveling at straight line so it will remain
concentrated at the origin no spreading
