TL;DR: In this article, an experimental investigation of the radiation and circuit properties of a resonant cylindrical dielectric cavity antenna has been undertaken, and a simple theory utilizing the magnetic wall boundary condition is shown to correlate well with measured results for radiation patterns and resonant frequencies.

Abstract: An experimental investigation of the radiation and circuit properties of a resonant cylindrical dielectric cavity antenna has been undertaken. The radiation patterns and input impedance have been measured for structures of various geometrical aspect ratios, dielectric constants, and sizes of coaxial feed probes. A simple theory utilizing the magnetic wall boundary condition is shown to correlate well with measured results for radiation patterns and resonant frequencies.

TL;DR: In this paper, a first resonator structure configured to transfer energy non-radiatively with a second resonance structure over a distance greater than a characteristic size of the second resonator.

Abstract: Disclosed is an apparatus for use in wireless energy transfer, which includes a first resonator structure configured to transfer energy non-radiatively with a second resonator structure over a distance greater than a characteristic size of the second resonator structure. The non-radiative energy transfer is mediated by a coupling of a resonant field evanescent tail of the first resonator structure and a resonant field evanescent tail of the second resonator structure.

TL;DR: In this article, a concave spherical resonator with two identical spherical reflectors, separated by any distance up to twice their common radius of curvature, is considered, and the diffraction losses are generally considerably lower for the curved surfaces than for the plane surfaces.

Abstract: Multimode resonators of high quality factor will very likely play a significant role in the development of devices, such as the maser, which operate in the millimeter through optical wavelength range. It has been suggested that a plane-parallel Fabry-Perot interferometer could act as a suitable resonator. In this paper a resonator consisting of two identical concave spherical reflectors, separated by any distance up to twice their common radius of curvature, is considered. Mode patterns and diffraction losses for the low-loss modes of such a resonator are obtained analytically, using an approximate method which was suggested by W. D. Lewis. The results show that the diffraction losses are generally considerably lower for the curved surfaces than for the plane surfaces. Diffraction losses and mode volume are a minimum when the reflector spacing equals the common radius of curvature of the reflectors. For this case the resonator may be termed confocal. A further property of the concave spherical resonator is that the optical alignment is not extremely critical.

TL;DR: In this paper, a comprehensive review of the modes and the radiation characteristics of open dielectric resonators (DRs) of different shapes, such as cylindrical, spherical, and rectangular, is presented.

Abstract: Open dielectric resonators (DRs) offer attractive features as antenna elements. These include their small size, mechanical simplicity, high radiation efficiency due to no inherent conductor loss, relatively large bandwidth, simple coupling schemes to nearly all commonly used transmission lines, and the advantage of obtaining different radiation characteristics using different modes of the resonator. In this article, we give a comprehensive review of the modes and the radiation characteristics of DRs of different shapes, such as cylindrical, cylindrical ring, spherical, and rectangular. Further, accurate closed form expressions are derived for the resonant frequencies, radiation Q-factors, and the inside fields of a cylindrical DR. These design expressions are valid over a wide range of DR parameters. Finally, the techniques used to feed DR antennas are discussed. © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors proposed an electromagnetic energy transfer device that includes a first resonator structure receiving energy from an external power supply, and a second resonance structure is positioned distal from the first, and supplies useful working power to an external load.

Abstract: The electromagnetic energy transfer device includes a first resonator structure receiving energy from an external power supply. The first resonator structure has a first Q-factor. A second resonator structure is positioned distal from the first resonator structure, and supplies useful working power to an external load. The second resonator structure has a second Q-factor. The distance between the two resonators can be larger than the characteristic size of each resonator. Non-radiative energy transfer between the first resonator structure and the second resonator structure is mediated through coupling of their resonant-field evanescent tails.
