 Posted: Tue Jan 04, 2011 4:47 am    Post subject: Horn Antennas I assume you are referring to the final equation on the horn antennas page: http://www.antenna-theory.com/antennas/aperture/horn.php To evaluate the equation using Matlab, you can do something like this (I haven't run this script, but it should give you the general idea for evaluating the radiation integral for the horn antenna): % assume you have the aperture E-field distribution, Ea(x, y) which corresponds to your locations integralSum = 0; % initalize discrete sum to represent integral deltaX = A/100; deltaY = B/100; for x=-A/2: deltaX : A/2 for y=-B/2: deltaY: B/2 integralSum = integralSum + Ea(x, y)*exp(-j*k*(x*sin(theta)*cos(phi) + y(sin(theta)*sin(phi) )*deltaX*deltaY; end end E(theta, phi) = integralSum*k/4/pi/r*(1 + cos(theta) ); That's basically it. You can declare phi to be constant and have theta a vector (then you have a theta cut), or do vice-versa and you have a phi cut. The trick is to simply write the integral as a discrete sum, and get the result point by point. For more on Fourier Transforms, see: http://www.thefouriertransform.com

How did the progress with the "project" turn out? I'm a bit curious to know, since I'm doing a similar project myself so I would be happy to know any experiences you've made!
