This paper presents the application of the Sources Reconstruction Method (SRM) for a reflectarray antenna diagnostics and characterization. The goal is to extract information about the phaseshift introduced by the reflectarray elements comparing it with the synthesized phase distribution of the reflection coefficient which was used in the reflectarray design. Also, the measured radiation pattern will be compared with the reference one, trying to find the reasons of the differences between them.
