READ MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE

What you can learn.

  • Learn the design, use, and evaluation of all capabilities used for antenna measurements, including outdoor ranges, compact ranges, anechoic chambers, and all near-field scanning methods in current use
  • Learn antenna measurements in the microwave and millimeter-wave frequency ranges and the instrumentation required for these measurements
  • Learn phased-array testing and alignment, antenna diagnostic methods, phaseless near field measurements, synthetic aperture techniques, measurements of wireless antennas, electromagnetic interference and compatibility issues, and radome testing

About this course:

Distinguished global industry experts from academia, government, and industry—including members of the Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA) and the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society—present lectures encompassing

  • Techniques for determining antenna radiation patterns, directivity, gain, polarization, and impedance. 
  • Design use and evaluation of all modern techniques (far field, near field, compact range, etc.) employed for antenna measurements
  • Antenna measurements in the microwave and millimeter-wave frequency ranges and required instruments
  • Phased-array testing and alignment, antenna diagnostic methods, phaseless near field measurements, synthetic aperture techniques, measurements of wireless antennas, electromagnetic interference and compatibility issues, and radome testing
  • AV tour of the UCLA Antenna Range—an example of a near-field scanning—to observe real-world application of lecture concepts
