This single volume provides a comprehensive introduction and explanation of both the theory and practice of 'Planar Near-Field Antenna Measurement' from its basic postulates and assumptions, to the intricacies of its deployment in complex and demanding measurement scenarios. To do this the book initially examines the properties of antennas that allow them to enhance the free space interaction of electronic systems and this leads into a full description of the theory of 'Planar Near-Field Scanning'.

The utility of the planar methodology is illustrated with example measurement campaigns that include discussion of the characterisation of a wide range of antennas. Advanced techniques including back transforms and poly-planar scan techniques, plus error assessment and correction, are examined and explained along with an extensive review of data assessment methodologies.

A large number of near-field facilities exist worldwide but to the authors' knowledge no single text provides a clear step-by-step description of all the details of the 'Planar Near-Field Measurement Technique'. All three authors have spent a significant proportion of their professional careers involved with antenna measurements and the aim of this text is to provide the reader with a complete, comprehensive and practical text that will act as a single reference for all aspects of the measurement technique.

Stuart Gregson MIET, MIoP, CEng, CPhys, CSci has BSc and MSc degrees in Physics from the University of Portsmouth, and a PhD from Queen Mary, University of London. He has special experience with near-field antenna measurement, finite array mutual coupling, computational electromagnetics and installed antenna performance prediction, and has published numerous peer-reviewed research papers. He is currently with Nearfield Systems Incorporated. John McCormick MIET, MIoP, FIScT, CPhys, CEng, CSci holds HNC Instrumentation Systems, BA Occupational Hygiene, BSc Natural Sciences/Physics, MSc Solid State Physics and PhD degrees from South Bank, Portsmouth and Open Universities successively. Within DERA, then BAE SYSTEMS and now SELEX SAS Edinburgh, from junior chemistry technician to lead radar systems engineer he has extensive experience in antenna, RCS and EW research and development. Clive Parini FIET is currently Professor of Antenna Engineering and Head of the Antenna and Electromagnetics Research Group at Queen Mary, University of London. In 1990 he jointly received the IET Measurements Prize for work on near-field reflector metrology. He was previously chairman of the IET Antennas and Propagation Professional Network Executive Team and an honorary editor for the IET Journal Microwaves, Antennas and Propagation.
