We provide a conceptual and theoretical analysis of nonsinusoidal antennas with emphasis on how electromagnetics and communication theories can be integrated to propose ideas for near-field (NF) communications systems utilizing future antennas. It is shown through rigorous analysis that in nonsinusoidal antennas it is possible to derive and solve ordinary differential equations giving specialized time-domain excitation signals that lead to exact cancellation of the near field at specific radiation spheres. This opens the door to building NF communications systems with far-field-like communication receiver infrastructures utilized if the receive antenna is placed at the special sphere where the NF component is made to vanish.
