Study of Di-electric Pyramidal Horn Antenna on the Basis of Geometrical Theory of Diffraction: A Survey

Ravinder Kaur, Maninder Singh


The communication of speech, music, pictures and other messages by means of electrical signals is referred as electrical communication. Across small distance speech and music are communicated straight from there source to the destination by mean of acoustic wave, as the same way picture is transmitted straightly by light wave across small distance. Over long distances, wire transmission and radio transmission are used to communicate such signals, in the latter case it is the antenna system which plays the vital role in the process by coupling the source of power to free space and then directing this energy in some preferred direction. This paper introduce microwave and has briefly presented the history of antenna developments. Middle portion of the paper gives acquaintance with the work done on dielectric antennas. In the last the author has attempted to justify the reason for taking of the problem and has also briefly mentioned the aspects to be dealt with, also discussed the Geometrical theory of Diffraction.
