Abstract

A treatment of the input impedance of a monopole antenna over a ground plane covered with a magnetoplasma with any arbitrary direction of the static magnetic field is presented. The analysis is restricted to a cold plasma with uniaxial and quasistatic approximations. It has been found that for parallel and perpendicular directions of the static magnetic field with respect to the ground plane perfect mirror reflections can be obtained. For other directions of the static magnetic field, the reflection is birefringent so that the monopole impedance becomes modified over a dipole impedance. These modifications can be significant under hyperbolic plasma conditions. A short and a long monopole were considered. From laboratory measurements of a long monopole impedance, the resonance cone and the resonances corresponding to the antenna length have been observed.
