Sources of Uncertainty for Near-Field Measurements

Published

Author(s)

Abstract

We discuss the sources of uncertainty in near-field measurements and their impact on far-field antenna parameters. The methods of estimating these uncertainties can be considered in three broad categories: theoretical estimation (analytical), computer simulation (assuming a numerical form for the error) and measurement (changing the measurement system in a systematic way).
