antenna effect

[an′ten·ə i′fekt]
(electromagnetism)
A distortion of the directional properties of a loop antenna caused by an input to the direction-finding receiver which is generated between the loop and ground, in contrast to that which is generated between the two terminals of the loop. Also known as electrostatic error; vertical component effect.

Overall, little has been reported in the literature on the mechanism of human body antenna effect in the context of HBC.
Copper cabling creates more of an antenna effect than thinner, mylar alminium foil cables, long lengths of aluminium cable won't pick up interference.
The use of the bowtie geometry has two significant benefits over previous work on plasmon lasers: (1) the bowtie structure provides a well-defined, electromagnetic hot spot in a nano-sized volume because of an antenna effect, and (2) the individual structure has only minimal metal "losses" because of its discrete geometry.
The manufacturer of thermally conductive plastics and heat transfer solutions also noted that its proprietary CoolPoly grades have no antenna effect (there is no amplification of electromagnetic or radio frequency interference and no magnetic coupling) and repel both heat and aluminum.
It should be noted that the same antenna effect should also be considered in the modal method as discussed in Section 1, since antennas are usually involved in the radiating of RF signals.
Features include no antenna effect (no amplification of electromagnetic or radio frequency interference and no magnetic coupling), 50 percent lighter weight than aluminum, and they provide part design flexibility.
The superscript H is the Hermitian operator, and h is the M x 1 composite fading channel vector including the overall antenna effect. Assume that h = [R.sub.1]/[sup.2][h.sub.w], where [h.sub.w] consists of M independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) proper (complex) Gaussian random variables with unity variance.
The unit is effective in suppressing and attenuating unwanted frequencies created by the "antenna effect" of passing high speed data across the display interface.
An alternative candidate has been proposed to mitigate the antenna effects by using the deconvolution technique [13, 14].

Due to the antenna effects and dispersion, the integration window we utilize following coherent summation is 50 percent longer than the duration of the synthetic input pulse.
