Abstract

The formation process of antenna mode scattering is analyzed, and a new prediction method to calculate the antenna mode scattering is proposed. Since the antenna mode scattering is essentially the reradiation of reflected energy, this reflected energy comes from the incident wave received by the antenna and reflects on the mismatched point of the feed network. Thus the calculation of the antenna mode scattering can be divided into three steps: 1. calculation of the antenna received energy; 2. calculation of the reflected energy from the feed network; 3. reradiation of this reflected energy. The numerical results of antenna mode scattering from a patch antenna and a dipole array are proposed to verify this approach.
