The theory of characteristic modes (TCM) provides excitation independent eigensolutions depending only on the material and geometrical properties of a structure. These solutions can provide important insights into the fundamental scattering and radiation properties of arbitrary structures that can be difficult and time consuming to achieve with conventional scattering analysis techniques. TCM has been found to be a particularly powerful tool in antenna design. It can enable systematic and intuitive antenna analysis with increased physical understanding and lead to antenna configurations with enhanced properties.
