Abstract—In this paper we derive a robust Markov Chain Monte Carlo formulation to determine the suitable driver amplitudes for a microwave antenna to generate a Bessel beam. We show that the resulting solutions provide a robust driver for a well collimated beam with high SNR over a region of 0.5 – 3 m, easily sufficient for close proximity sampling.
