Abstract

This study aims to investigate different configurations of plasma antenna arrays and multiple combinations based on whether the plasma dischargers are set ON or OFF, to assess the coupling, interference and overall performance of these plasma antenna arrays.Design/methodology/approachIn this paper, the authors investigate the operation and performance of the combined use of sets of antennas and plasma antenna elements in plasma monopole antenna arrays.FindingsThe authors find that there can be significant modifications of the plasma antenna arrays’ gain and pattern in multiple ways, merely by switching different combinations of plasma columns ON and OFF.Originality/valueHigh-density plasma antenna arrays have been examined in this paper and it has been shown that they are capable of reaching high antenna gain. Moreover, the overall antenna array’s gain and pattern can be considerably transformed in multiple ways by turning ON and OFF different combinations of plasma antenna elements. Finally, the electromagnetic coupling and interference coming from these plasma antennas can be greatly reduced.
