Title Truncation-Error Reduction in 2D Cylindrical/Spherical Near-Field Measurements.
Publication Date Mar 2010
Media Count 26p
Personal Author K. T. Kim
Abstract We introduce a near-field to far-field transformation for two-dimensional cylindrical/spherical scanning that significantly reduces angular-truncation errors. After examining the limitations of the traditional multipole-based expansion of truncated scan data, we consider an alternative expansion based on Slepian functions and show how far-field values can be extracted from the resulting expansion coefficients. We compare the performance and computational cost of the new transformation with those of the traditional one.
