Abstract
We study the current distribution and input impedance of a circular loop antenna in the form of an infinitesimally thin, perfectly conducting narrow strip coiled into a ring. The antenna is located on the surface of an axially magnetized plasma column surrounded by a homogeneous isotropic medium. The current in the antenna is excited by a time-harmonic voltage creating an electric field with the azimuthal component in a gap of small angular opening on the strip surface. The emphasis is placed on the solution of the integral equations for the azimuthal harmonics of the antenna current in the case where the magnetoplasma inside the column is nonresonant. The properties of the kernels of the integral equations are discussed and the current distribution in the antenna is obtained. It is shown that the presence of a magnetized plasma column can significantly influence the electrodynamic characteristics of the antenna compared with the case where it is located in the surrounding medium or a homogeneous plasma medium the parameters of which coincide with those inside the column.
