Let's consider the case of linear dipole antenna or Hertz dipole.
I know that the antenna acts as a transducer and it radiates the E-M waves due to the acceleration and decelaration of the electrons or charges in the wire. While receiving the signal, it is said that the E-M waves induce a voltage at the input end of the antenna. (Let's call this open circuit voltage Voc ).
- If the incoming E-M wave can induce a voltage won't it accelerate or decelerate the electrons in the wire and doesn't this acceleration cause further radiation (lets call it secondary radiation) of E-M waves?
- Won't this secondary radiation lead to loss in the effectively received power?
It would be really helpful if I get a clarification on this.
