Abstract

This paper is first in the phase-mode analysis literature to analytically characterize the far-field azimuth-elevation beam-pattern due to any arbitrary excitation-function on a elliptical-rim aperture. The new findings include: Such an arbitrary excitation-function's far-field beam-pattern is not always φ-θ separable. Nonetheless, this beam-pattern is Σ-separable in the sense that it is a sum of φ-θ separable terms.
