Determines physical distance from a transmission or reflection ntwk

Given a matched transmission or reflection measurment the physical distance is estimated at each frequency point based on the scattering parameter phase of the ntwk and propagation constant.


If the ntwk is a reflect measurement, the returned distance will be twice the physical distance.

Parameters:ntwk (Network) – A one-port network of either the reflection or the transmission. if
