MetadataShow full item record
The impedance of an Alfven wave launching antenna has been measured. An increase in the resistance of the antenna at an eigenmode has been observed. Various broadband matching networks were tried to match this antenna to a broadband rf source, over the frequency range 5-15 MHz. It was found that an efficient broadband match is not feasible in the frequency range of interest.
