Abstract:

In near-field scanning, as the electrical size of a device under test increases, it becomes increasingly time-consuming to collect all the required near-field samples using a single probe. Thus, it becomes desirable to use an array of probes to collect the near-field samples simultaneously to decrease the measurement time. We consider some of the electromagnetic issues associated with performing near-field measurement using an array of probes for antenna and bistatic radar cross section RCS applications.
