## What is 3D radiation pattern?

Radiation Pattern in 3D The radiation pattern is a three-dimensional figure and represented in spherical coordinates (r, θ, Φ) assuming its origin at the center of spherical coordinate system.

What is the dimension of radiation pattern?

The radiation pattern is defined as a mathematical function or a graphical representation of the far field (ie, for r≫2D2/λ, with D being the largest dimension of the antenna) radiation properties of the antenna, as a function of the direction of departure of the electromagnetic (EM) wave.

Is also called as 3 dB bandwidth?

The bandwidth of a filter or amplifier is usually defined as the difference between the lower and upper half-power points. This is, therefore, also known as the 3 dB bandwidth. There is no lower half-power point for a low-pass amplifier, so the bandwidth is measured relative to DC, i.e., 0 Hz.

### How antenna gain is measured?

* Antenna gain is measured in decibels as either dBi or dBd. dBi refers to dB away from a theoretical isotropic antenna (0), while dBd refers to dB away from a more real world reference dipole antenna with a gain of 2.15 dB.

What information is available from a radiation pattern?

The radiation pattern of an antenna gives us information about its receiving and transmitting properties in different directions.

Where do we find radiation patterns?

The far-field pattern of an antenna may be determined experimentally at an antenna range, or alternatively, the near-field pattern may be found using a near-field scanner, and the radiation pattern deduced from it by computation.

#### Why is the 3 dB frequency called so?

It’s because decibels are logarithmic, and the log (base 10) of 3 is about 50% power. So the 3 decibel cutoff is where power drops off by a half. 3 dB implies 1/2 the power and since the power is proportional to the square of voltage, the voltage will be 0,707 of the pass band voltage.
