  • adj. Of or pertaining to the far field, the region sufficiently distant from a radio antenna for angular field distribution to be independent of distance.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Although our findings seemingly conflict with the eustatic sea-level curve of far-field sites, they corroborate an alternative view that MIS 5a was at least as ice-free as the present, and they challenge the prevailing view of MIS 5 sea-level history and certain facets of ice-age theory.

  • The far-field pattern is a sinc function (sin(x)/x, for the uninitiated).

  • I love hearing from my project-teammate from grad school, my college sorority sisters, home-town high school friends, and family far-field.

  • One can consider the far-field as an effectively uncontrollable environment that decoheres the particle (and the near-field), so that superpositions of different charges are indeed never observed.

  • As with most hand-wavy arguments, there are some important details being glossed over here (e.g., near vs far-field effects; Scott and Eanna have a nice review).

    The difficult childhood of gravitational waves

  • High speed data xfer over IR if its close to, on or in your computer, slower speed if its resting (magnetically held) on say the keyboard (via 13. 56mhz near-field coupling), or polling Volune ID only at a distance with say 2. 56Ghz far-field communication.

  • High SNR of 61 dBA enables excellent sound quality and intelligibility in far-field applications.

  • The orogenic event started before 460 million years ago and lasted until at least 420 million years ago, possibly as a result of far-field plate interactions with Gondwanaland.

    EurekAlert! - Breaking News

  • MIMO antenna solution exhibits excellent MIMO gain performance with > 50% efficiency values in free-space for handset applications, better than - 10dB in near field isolation, and better than 0.3 far-field envelop correlation coefficient.
