From the point of view of antenna performance evaluation, it is essential to measure the strength of E or H components near the antenna. This then makes it possible to find the current or the charge distribution along the antenna. With this as a basis, it is possible to find the radiation pattern of the antenna and its input impedance. The measurement of E, H, or S in the near field (with the phase information conserved) permits us, with some complex calculations, to find the antenna's radiation pattern in the far field. From the point of view of shielding, absorbing, or EMF attenuating materials investigations, the E, H, and S measurements are sufficient as well.
