Theoretical Foundations of Near-Field-Far-Field Transformations with Spiral Scannings
By

Abstract
In this paper, the theoretical foundations of near-field-far- field transformations with spiral scannings are revisited and a unified theory is provided. This is accomplished by introducing a sampling representation of the radiated electromagnetic field on a rotational surface from the knowledge of a nonredundant number of its samples on a spiral wrapping the surface. The obtained results are general, since they are valid for spirals wrapping on quite arbitrary rotational surfaces, and can be directly applied to the pattern reconstruction via near-field-far-field transformation techniques. Numerical tests are reported for demonstrating the accuracy of the approach and its stability with respect to random errors affecting the data.
