In this paper, we present a method to reconstruct the modal current distribution on an antenna from the radiated far field and general knowledge about the modes involved. The method leads to good results if the radiation mechanism of the antenna can be approximated by the current distribution on a simplified structure. The current distribution of the simplified structure is decomposed into its characteristic modes and the related modal far field is calculated. Assuming that the far field of the… CONTINUE READING
