Simplified Spherical Near-Field Accuracy Assessment

  title={Simplified Spherical Near-Field Accuracy Assessment},
  author={Greg Hindman and Allen C. Newell},
  journal={IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine},
Spherical near-field measurements have become a common way to assess the performance of a wide variety of antennas. However, published reports on range-error assessments for spherical near-field ranges are not very common. This is likely due to the perceived additional complexity of the spherical near-field measurement process, as compared to planar or cylindrical measurement techniques. This paper will establish and demonstrate a simple procedure for characterizing the performance of a… CONTINUE READING
