A convenient sampling distribution and an optimal sampling interpolation algorithm are here presented for mapping the antenna near-field values on a planar surface. The mapping procedure is based on the theoretical background related to a non-redundant sampling representation of the electromagnetic field and uses an unconventional arrangement of the sampling points. Their position results from the standard plane-rectangular allocation by properly increasing the distance between near sampling points as their distance from the antenna grows. This permits to map the values in a given area by using the knowledge of a reduced number of samples and, therefore, the measurement time is conveniently shorted. Numerical simulations and antenna measurements in anechoic chamber have been executed to test the effectiveness of the mapping procedure, whose accuracy has been proved by means of maximum and mean-square reconstruction errors at given output points.

Abstract

A convenient sampling distribution and an optimal sampling interpolation algorithm are here presented for mapping the antenna near-field values on a planar surface. The mapping procedure is based on the theoretical background related to a non-redundant sampling representation of the electromagnetic field and uses an unconventional arrangement of the sampling points. Their position results from the standard plane-rectangular allocation by properly increasing the distance between near sampling points as their distance from the antenna grows. This permits to map the values in a given area by using the knowledge of a reduced number of samples and, therefore, the measurement time is conveniently shorted. Numerical simulations and antenna measurements in anechoic chamber have been executed to test the effectiveness of the mapping procedure, whose accuracy has been proved by means of maximum and mean-square reconstruction errors at given output points.
