Chapter 3 UWB antennas

Grzegorz Adamiuk, Xuyang Li and Werner Wiesbeck

3.1 UWB antenna measurement methods

The methods for measuring antenna transfer functions with a network analyzer presented in the following use typically available measurement equipment for far-field antenna measurements with enhanced calibration procedures. The latter are necessary in order to obtain stable and consistent phase information for the transfer function in co- and cross-polarization. These methods complement the standardized antenna measurements known from [68]. A validation of the methods is presented with the prediction of a time domain impulse transmission, which is measured independently with a fast-pulse generator and an oscilloscope.

A prerequisite for ...
