  1. Compare the gain (in dB) of the requested far field pattern on a polar plot.

    Figure 1. The polar plot of the requested radiation pattern compared to the reference solution and a full FEM result.
    Note: View the input gain pattern of the point source (labelled Reference). It is used as a reference and compared to the glass lens antenna solved with RL-GO and the hybrid FEM/MoM.

    Both the FEM/MoM and RL-GO solutions are in good agreement with one another. Observe the expected focussing of the electric fields in the main beam direction.

    Tip: The memory and runtime requirements for the RL-GO solution are orders of magnitude lower than that of the hybrid FEM/MoM solution.
  2. Optional: Add an image of the lens to the polar graph.
