Abstract : Plasma antennas refer to a wide variety of antenna concepts that incorporate some use of an ionized medium. This study summarizes the basic theory behind the operation of plasma antennas based on a survey of patents and technical publications. Methods of exciting and confining plasmas are discussed, and the current state of the art in plasma technology is examined.
