Dear ARTS team, After playing around with a 1d Gaussian antenna response (using the workspace variable ‘AntennaConstantGaussian1D’), I now want to set a custom antenna pattern from actual lab measurements.
I have vectors for the zenith and azimuth angles, as well as a grid of normalized antenna responses for each Stokes vector element. The normalization follows the ARTS behavior, where the integral of the responses over all angle increments is 1. Can you guys help me out with correctly using that info in ARTS? I briefly looked at creating a workspace variable named ‘antenna_response’ with ‘GriddedField4’, but somehow the format confuses me. Also, I am pretty sure that this is not enough and there probably are more steps I need to take for ARTS to accept that variable as the antenna pattern. Thanks for your help and best wishes, Frank -- Frank Werner Mail Stop 183-701, Jet Propulsion Laboratory 4800 Oak Grove Drive, Pasadena, California 91109, United States Phone: +1 818 354-1918
