Hi, everyone. I have a question about the antenna near field analysis.
In order to analyze the near field of the printed antenna, we need to define the plane for display. It seems to me that we still need the radiation boundary in order to absort all the outgoing radiation wave.
But my problem is that the wavelength (...)

However, if I run the simulation with an airbox which is just very slightly larger than the antenna size, the simulated values become very close to the measured ones.

You'll need to set up an 'infinite sphere' for far or near field under radiation. The 3d plot is pretty easy to get as a report but have a look at the coordinate sys on the 3d plot - the phi and theta are reversed. Something to keep in mind when you want a specific cut.

I want to stress that hfss stands for High Frequency structure simulator. Therefore 13 MHz would not seem like a high frequency. And yes, a quarter-wavelength distance from the nearest radiating edge is required for the radiation boundary. PML would reduce your simulation time as the distance can reduce down to lamda/6 to lamda/10. In
