Helices sometimes participate in more complex structures.
A conventional volute antenna consists of two to four helices of short element length (a multiple of a quarter-wavelength).
But the newfound, space-saving advantage of these geometries "might be one reason underlying the particular selection of the helices found in nature," says Jayanth R.
These plugs serve two purposes: to complete the electrical continuity of the ground plane at the base of the helices via capacitive coupling and to impedance match the helix inputs.
The helices line up, facing opposite ways, then make contact with the two helices from another pair.
