Description

Theory and Practice of Modern Antenna Range Measurements provides a comprehensive introduction and explanation of both the theory and practice of all forms of modern antenna measurements, from their most basic postulates and assumptions, to the intricate details of their application in various demanding modern measurement scenarios.

This book begins with an initial examination of the properties of antennas that allow them to enhance the free space interaction of electronic systems, followed by an introduction to direct far-field and indirect far-field forms of antenna measurements and their implementation.

Detailed descriptions are given of the direct far-field measurement technique CATR (Compact Antenna Test Ranges), Body-Centric measurements, and detailed developments of standard planar, cylindrical and spherical near-field techniques; near-field range error budgets which are an indispensable part of antenna metrology.

The book concludes with some of the most recent advances in the various measurement techniques such as aperture diagnostics, phase-less antenna metrology, error correction, range multi-path suppression techniques. Extensive examples illustrate the concepts and techniques.

Topics include:

  • the properties of antennas that allow them to enhance the free space interaction of electronic systems
  • an introduction to direct far-field and indirect far-field forms of antenna measurements and their implementation
  • the direct far-field measurement technique CATR (Compact Antenna Test Ranges), and alternative indirect planar, cylindrical and spherical techniques
  • near-field range error budgets which are an indispensable part of antenna metrology
  • modern mobile and body centric antenna measurements
  • recent advances in the various measurement techniques such as aperture diagnostics, phase-less antenna metrology and range multi-path suppression techniques
