Antenna transducers are those devices used to convert the radio frequency fields into alternating currents and vice versa. It consists of multiple components such as receiving antenna, transmitting antenna and a transducer. The radio frequency field is generated by the transmitting antenna that is transferred to the receiving antenna which converts these RF into AC with the help of a transducer.
Physically, an antenna is an array of conductors that generate a radiating electromagnetic field in response to alternating voltage and alternating current. Antennas usually work in air or outer space, but also can be used under water or soil and rock at certain frequency levels. An antenna being an arrangement of conductors, the spatial relationship amongst the individual antennas caters to the directivity of the antenna.
