Welcome to my Antennas and Microwaves page, I hope you find your visit interesting
and informative. As a practicing Antenna engineer for some 14 years, this page probably
comes under the heading “old habits die hard”. However, the site’s existence may
go some way to proving that life in rural France hasn’t turned me into Banjo playing
hillbilly just yet - close friends have their own opinions on this!
The contents are basically things that I have found interesting or useful over the
years or that I am still tinkering with.
> A collection of m-files that allow plotting of Smith Charts, Admittance Charts
etc. Also Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) for balanced and un-balanced transmission
lines, using standard to mixed mode S-param conversion.
> A Toolbox to assist in the design of phased arrays. Arrays can be defined in 2D
and 3D and constructed using a variety of element models. These include : patch
(circular and rectangular) , helix, user defined and interpolated (using external
> A fairly comprehensive technical note, with emphasis on the practical side. Covering
by way of an example, array aperture theory, array specification, power splitter
design and mutual coupling correction strategies.
