Book on Theory and Practice of Modern Antenna Metrology
A book, "Theory and Practice of Modern Antenna Range Measurements", has been published by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET).
Based on research activities conducted at the Antennas and Electromagnetics Research Group (led by Prof. Clive G. Parini) and external collaborators, this book contains chapters covering:
- the properties of antennas that allow them to enhance the free space interaction of electronic systems
- an introduction to direct far-field and indirect far-field forms of antenna measurements and their implementation
- the direct far-field measurement technique CATR (Compact Antenna Test Ranges), and alternative indirect planar, cylindrical and spherical near-field techniques
- near-field range error budgets which are an indispensable part of antenna metrology
- modern mobile and body-centric antenna measurements
- recent advances in the various measurement techniques, such as aperture diagnostics, phase-less antenna meteorology and range multi-path suppression techniques
"Theory and Practice of Modern Antenna Range Measurements provides a comprehensive introduction and explanation of both the theory and practice of all forms of modern antenna measurements, from their most basic postulates and assumptions, to the intricate details of their application in various demanding modern measurement scenarios."
