Reconfigurable plasma antennas


This paper reviews recent work and applications of plasma antennas. Plasma antennas use partially or fully ionized gas instead of metal as the conducting medium to create an antenna. The advantages of plasma antennas are that they are highly reconfigurable and can be turned on and off. The radiated wave profile can be calculated by several numerical methods. The disadvantage is that plasma antennas require energy to be ionized. Hence, research to reduce the power required to ionize the gas at various plasma densities is important.
