Abstract

In this paper, a low cost near field measurement technique has been developed. The measurement design uses a probe mounted on the vertical frame of the scanner to pick up the cylindrical surface of the test antenna near field. The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) method is utilized to transform near field to far field data. Firstly the developed scanner and near field to far field transformation program are compared to the commercial software based on finite element method (HFSS). The comparison of the developed near field measurement technique with the finite element method (HFSS) program is discussed using dipole antenna as a probe antenna to measure microstrip array antenna as test antenna. Both compensated and uncompensated probe are described.
