Further test upon the validity of SBHM to model experimental RASHG data from zincblende samples which are noncentrosymmetric confirmed the existence of bulk dipole radiation as the dominant source of SHG [17].

Thus, an attempt to increase the loudness of the classical guitar at frequencies up to 5 kHz could consider increasing its monopole radiation as dipole radiation tends to dominate at these frequencies as shown in Figure 7.
Small Dipole Radiation. According to [9-11], the incident radiated field is pure T[M.sub.z] or T[E.sub.z] if the sources are axially (z-) oriented while the type of field mode depends only on whether such source is of electric or magnetic type, respectively.
Based on the equivalent circuit [13] of the microstrip integrated balun, an impedance element is placed in the center of the slotted balun to replace the dipole radiation impedance and fill the slot of the shorting slot-line between the two dipole arms with metal to restrain the radiation of the dipole.
This paper is organized as follows: Section 2 reviews the basic process of electric dipole radiation and the resulting emissivity.
When the background medium is homogeneous, the dipole radiation is straightforward, the Green's tensor being known analytically, by the means of spherical Hankel function [3].
Owing to the Doppler effect, the dipole radiation temperature (determined by the 1st derivative of the monopole) is lower than the monopole radiation temperature, with a value equal to the observed deviation.
The factor [sin.sup.2][theta] is characteristic of dipole radiation and the denominator (1-[[beta].sub.e]cos[theta])[.sup.2] arises as a consequence of retardation.
