Error Analysis Techniques for Planar Near-field Measurements

Authors: Allen C. Newell
Publication: IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation
Copyright Owner: IEEE

The results of an extensive error analysis on planar near-field measurements are described. The analysis provides ways for estimating the magnitude of each individual source of error and then combining them to estimate the total uncertainty in the measurements. Mathematical analysis, computer simulation, and measurement tests are all used where appropriate.
