EM Solution – Characteristic Modes Analysis (CMA) Option in TriD Solver

Characteristic Mode Analysis (CMA) is intended to analyze scattering characteristics of the object (usually metallic) by expanding the total current on the structure in terms of characteristic currents, or modes (CMs).

This feature is useful in terms of the designs of reconfigurable antenna systems. Moreover, the use of characteristic modes of an antenna can greatly improve its fundamental parameters, such as efficiency, gain, polarization purity, compactness, as well as provide more flexibility in the design of its excitation schemes.
