Basics of Antenna Measurements and Instrumentation

Abstract:

Antenna measurements are an invaluable tool for today’s antenna engineer. It is essential to grasp a thorough understanding of the environment, the techniques and the available hardware in order to achieve accurate results. The presentation will focus on near-field and far-field techniques for both outdoor and indoor environments for the microwave bands. A comparative table will also be presented highlighting the main advantages of each technique. A question and answer session will also be available at the end of the presentation.
