Abstract

A comparison between two recently developed methods for antenna diagnostics is presented. On one hand, the Spherical Wave Expansion-to-Plane Wave Expansion (SWE-PWE), based on the relationship between spherical and planar wave modes. On the other hand, the Sources Reconstruction Method (SRM), based on the application of the equivalence principle and the integral equations relating fields and sources. In order to compare the results provided by these methods, a reflector antenna has been measured and analyzed
