This book addresses the need to establish measurement standards for electromagnetic fields to produce accurate results and is ideal for engineers concerned with measurement techniques.
While it provides a review of fundamental properties of electromagnetic fields and the simple antennas that can generate and receive such fields, the main focus of this book is dedicated to the analysis of the accuracy of measurements and field standards using a range of radiating structures. It is designed to help develop the following measurement standards: proper calibration of the measuring instrument, external environmental factors that affect accuracy and competence and training of the instrument operator. As such, it is ideal for practicing engineers in the field of antennas, electromagnetic compatibility and electromagnetic propagation who are concerned with measurement techniques.
This is a companion book to Electromagnetic Measurements of the Near Field.
