Abstract:
This paper presents a novel dielectric near-field probe as an alternative for the conventional open-ended waveguide probes. The latter tend to be bulky in the mobile communication frequency bands (GSM 900 and GSM 1800). Furthermore they show significant interaction with the AUT as compared to the proposed dielectric probe.
