Abstract—In this paper, an approximate closed-form expression of the electric field of a conical horn with linear flare is formulated. Copolarization and cross polarization component of the electric field are calculated from the spherical field components using Ludwig’s third definition of copolarization and cross polarization. The calculated field expression is found to be in close agreement with experimental results found in literature. The radiation characteristics of the conical horn are analyzed using the derived field expressions.

Index Terms—Conical horn antenna, copolarization and cross polarization.
