Abstract

A new conformal manning technioue for deter- mining the characteristic impedance of TEM horn antennas is presented. The original work by Carrel [1], on noncoplanar fin antennas of this type, predicts incorrect impedance values, which do not agree with experimental results. This paper discusses fully the source of the error in [1] and details the successive mappings involved in the new approach. Verification of the method is provided by experimental results and by comparison with an alternative numerical technique.
