247 Threads found on edaboard.com: Reflector
There are a number of excellent books on the subject to get started with a general design. The demands that a reflector on a processor are significant so unless you have a relatively large computer and the appropriate variations on the software (FE-BI in particular) HFSS may not be the best tool. Look into TICRA as an alternate.

Its a real pain to maintain parabaloidal reflector at proper proportions and at the same time providing proper flare. I have found flaring easier than and reflector cumbersome perhaps there is a cheat way to set a flare up to have a reflector (parabaloidal) reflect low frequencies despite its inadequate dimension?

You just design an antenna having a 120 degree azimuth beamwidth and plot its pattern the same way you plotted the unidirectional antenna. Typically these are v-pol colinear arrays with a reflector. You could use image theory to calculate point source phases and locations to obtain the azimuth array factor.

What would be more correct for calculations:

2) connecting two antenna centers with point reflector Z-position using parallel lines (so the second line does not ends exactly on point reflector, but altered in Y-direction by antenna distance)

I concur with Bigdogguru. Depending on where it is fitted, and whether you can live with it being slightly directional (more than it already is), you might be able to use it as the active element in a short Yagi antenna. In other words, fit a reflector behind it and one or more director elements in front of it. Something along the lines of a TV ant

Ultrasonic transmission requires both TX and RX transducers to resonate at the same frequency. Try adding variable capacitor (10-300 pF) in parallel with one transducer, if no improvement, then to the other.
Use a parabolic reflector on one or both sides to increase directivity.
Try checking the waveform with an oscilloscope before the amplifier

well, the simple answer is: they don't emit at a single frequency! Look at the spectrum of a standard laser diode..you will see a hump of frequencies!
Only (in semiconductor lasers) if you use distributed feedback type (i.e. have a bandpass filter type of reflector mirror) will you get MOST of the energy in one spectral line.
