Spherical Near-Field Antenna Measurements Using Nonideal Measurement Locations



Ronald C. Wittmann, Bradley Alpert, Michael H. Francis


We introduce a near-field spherical scanning algorithm that relaxes the usual condition requiring data points to be on a regular spherical grid. Computational complexity is of the same order as for the standard (ideal-positioning) spherical-scanning technique. The new procedure has been tested extensively with simulated data.
