Development of the Numerical Attenuation Factor for a Spiral Antenna affected by Spurious Modes
This poster details the work performed in the 2017 SURE Program under Dr. Robert Penno. The objective is to improve Dr. Penno's model for the four arm, Archimedian spiral antenna in the presence of spurious modes by developing an attenuation constant. This constant is derived from the principles of a transmission line with shunt loads in the place of the arms of the antenna with spurious modes. The results are prepared to be analysed by Dr. Penno and the effectiveness of the constants on the radiation pattern of the antenna will be examined in future work.
