ABOUT THIS BOOK
This book is the first comprehensive treatment of microwave horns and feeds for reflector antennas for use in satellite and terrestrial communications, radar and radio astronomy. The feed for a reflector antenna is a crucial component because the performance of the reflector depends on a good feed to collect or radiate signals.
The book presents the principles and applications of reflector and horn antennas with emphasis on the developments of the last decade. The background theory is included and the analytical techniques are explained. Extensive design data and numerous examples of practical horn and feed antennas are given.
The book is a collaboration between four authors, bringing together an unrivalled knowledge of analytical techniques and experience in designing horns, feeds and reflector antennas. The book should be of value to both the research worker and the designer of practical feeds for reflector antennas.
