Abstract

The strength of a radiated field at some location in free space can be described in terms of the equivalent conducted output from an isotropic probe antenna with a specified reference polarization. This metric has already entered use by various standards, technical reports, and academic literature, but lacks an accepted name, and has not been studied or defined in detail by published work. We refer to the parameter here as equivalent isotropic incident power (EIIP). This article is a brief discussion of some basic properties of EIIP by relation with standard antenna and field strength parameters.
