Derivation of green’s functions for spherically stratified media using an equivalent two port network model /

Yeni, Burcu
Derivation of dyadic Green’s functions for a variety of geometries is a problem frequently faced in different fields of electromagnetics including the analysis and design of antennas, waveguides and resonators. In the case of spherically stratified antenna, waveguide or resonator structures, the analytical derivation process of dyadic Green’s functions is often extremely complex while numerical solutions comprise heavy workload. In this thesis, an equivalent two-port network model, which was first developed for the analysis of stratified planar structures and then extended to stratified cylindrical and spherical structures, is utilized to derive the spectral-domain Green’s functions of spherically stratified media including a spherical microstrip antenna and a human head modeled as a spherical multilayer dielectric. This equivalent circuit model approach is applicable to multiple geometries and enables the utilization of simple network analysis techniques for the derivation of Green’s functions in these geometries.


Efficient computation of the Green's function for multilayer structures with periodic dielectric gratings
Adanır, Süleyman; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
Numerical analysis of periodic structures in layered media is usually accomplished by using Method of Moments which requires the formation of the impedance matrix of the structure. The construction of this impedance matrix requires the evaluation of the periodic Green’s function in layered media which is expressed as an infinite series in terms of the spectral domain Green’s function. The slow converging nature of this series make these kinds of analysis computationally expensive. Although some papers have ...
Design of Irregularly Shaped Patch Antennas by using the Multiport Network Model
Sener, Goker; Alatan, Lale; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2008-07-11)
The multiport network model (MNM) is an analytical method that is used to analyze microstrip antennas. MNM is based on defining ports along the periphery of the patch and evaluating the impedance matrix corresponding to these ports by using the Greenpsilas function for the cavity under the patch. For regular rectangular, triangular and circular patches, analytical expressions for the Greenpsilas function are available. In the analysis of irregular patches, Greenpsilas functions cannot be calculated explicit...
Optimization of the array geometry for direction finding
Özaydın, Seval; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, optimization of the geometry of non-uniform arrays for direction finding yielding unambiguous results is studied. A measure of similarity between the array response vectors is defined. In this measure, the effects of antenna array geometry, source placements and antenna gains are included as variable parameters. Then, assuming that the antenna gains are known and constant, constraints on the similarity function are developed and described to result in unambiguous configurations and maximum r...
Analysis of coupled lines in microwave printed circuit elements
Piroğlu, Şefika Özkal; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Full wave analysis of microstrip lines at microwave frequencies is performed by using method of moments in conjunction with closed-form spatial domain Green’s functions. The Green’s functions are in general Sommerfeld-type integrals which are computationally expensive. To improve the efficiency of the technique, Green’s functions are approximated by their closed-forms. Microstrip lines are excited by arbitrarily located current sources and are terminated by complex loads at both ends. Current distributions ...
Theoretical investigation and design of wideband dielectric resonator antennas
Yüksel, Yılmaz Çağrı; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
The aim of this thesis is to utilize Dielectric Resonator Antennas (DRA) as array elements due to their advantages over other conventional antenna elements such as dipoles and microstrip patches. Depending on both the excitation mechanisms and the antenna shape, a Dielectric Resonator Antenna (DRA) provides its designer multiple independent degrees of freedom. In this thesis three antenna shapes, namely hemispherical, cylindrical and rectangular DRAs, are investigated. The cylindrical and the rectangular sh...
