Antennas

RFID Antenna
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tag

Antennas are normally modeled with CHRONOS and SINGULA .

  • Linear antennas
  • Microstrip antennas
  • Horn antennas
  • Reflector antennas
  • Dielectric resonating antennas
  • Phased array antennas
  • Slots in waveguide

In the case where the geometry is much smaller than the wavelength, the antenna/receiver is best thought of as inductive coupling. The simulation software to model this with are MAGNETO (2D/RS) or AMPERES (3D simulation). If there are conductors present which will affect the coupling through Eddy Currents, then use OERSTED (2D/RS) or FARADAY (3D simulation) instead.
