An algorithm for the effective compensation of known positioning errors, affecting the samples acquired by the probe in a non-redundant plane-rectangular (PR) near-field to far-field (NFFF) transformation, is presented and fully assessed by experimental tests.

Abstract

An algorithm for the effective compensation of known positioning errors, affecting the samples acquired by the probe in a non-redundant plane-rectangular (PR) near-field to far-field (NFFF) transformation, is presented and fully assessed by experimental tests. This transformation adopts a non-conventional PR scan, named planar wide-mesh scan (PWMS), characterized by meshes widening more and more as their distance from the measurement plane center increases, and uses a nonredundant sampling representation of the probe voltage. Such a representation is obtained by considering the antenna as contained in an oblate spheroid, to precisely determine the input NF data for the traditional PR NFFF transformation from the PWMS samples. These samples are unavailable in presence of positioning errors, but, as it will be shown, can be effectively retrieved from the errors affected ones by applying an iterative procedure.
