Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR LAUNCHING ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES ALONG A TRANSMISSION MEDIUM
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS DE LANCEMENT D'ONDES ÉLECTROMAGNÉTIQUES LE LONG D'UN SUPPORT DE TRANSMISSION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, launching, by a plurality of launchers of a waveguide system, a wave mode that propagates along a transmission medium without requiring an electrical return path, detecting, by the waveguide system, that the wave mode has a propagation loss caused by an obstruction, and generating, by the plurality of launchers, an adjusted wave mode having an electric field structure that reduces the propagation loss of the obstruction. Other embodiments are disclosed.
(FR)Des aspects de la présente invention peuvent comprendre le lancement, par une pluralité de lanceurs d'un système de guide d'ondes, d'un mode d'onde qui se propage le long d'un support de transmission sans nécessiter de trajet de retour électrique ; la détection, par le système de guide d'ondes, que le mode d'onde présente un affaiblissement de propagation provoqué par une obstruction ; et la génération, par la pluralité de lanceurs, d'un mode d'onde ajusté ayant une structure de champ électrique qui réduit l'affaiblissement de propagation de l'obstruction. L'invention concerne également d'autres modes de réalisation.
