Abstract

We investigate the problem of near field interactions with general antenna systems using the antenna current Green's function formalism recently proposed by the authors as a framework for the theoretical and computational analysis of the interaction problem. The paper focus is on conceptual and numerical issues related to the analysis of the electromagnetic response of generic devices to arbitrary illumination fields produced, for example, by nearby source or scattered by surrounding objects. We provide some method of moment numerical examples involving wire antenna systems substantiating the ACGF approach to the problem of near field excitations.
