Plasma offers a promising alternative to metal for a wide variety of radiofrequency antenna applications. ¦ In this letter we report measurements of efficiencies up to 50% and radiation patterns for § plasma column antenna elements. It is demonstrated that the current distribution along the antenna ¦ can be controlled by the plasma density. Plasma columns can be used instead of metal elements in communications antennas.
