Impedance matching using Smith Chart and relationship to reflection

You are correct that there is a clear correlation. Perhaps your Smith chart does not have the following scales along the bottom?: The technique is to use your compass to measure from the center of ...

Reflection Coefficient to Impedance transformation on the Smith Chart

Since you know the complex reflection coefficient, you can simply use this formula to calculate the complex impedance: $$Z=Z_O\frac{1+\rho}{1-\rho} \tag 1$$ Assuming the characteristic impedance is ...

Smith Chart - constant resistance circle and infinite resistance at right

The circles on the Smith Chart cross the horizontal axis at a certain normalized resistance $R_n$, and at normalized resistance $\infty$. Traversing these circles (starting from $R_n$) is equivalent ...
