Methods to Estimate and Reduce Leakage Bias Errors in Planar Near-Field Measurements



Allen C. Newell, Jeffrey R. Guerrieri, Katherine MacReynolds


This paper describes two methods that can be used to measure the leakage signals, predict the effect on the far-field pattern and correct the measured data for leakage bias errors without additional near-field measurements. One method is an extension and addition to the work previously reported by Rousseaul. Examples for both broad-beam antennas will be used to illustrate the techniques.
