THE SYNTHESIS OF COMPLEX-ANGLE ZEROS FOR ON-BOARD ANTENNA ARRAYS

By G. Gajardo-Silva and L. Landesa

Full Article PDF (364 KB)

Abstract:
Shelkunoff circle synthesis techniques are only effective for equispaced antenna arrays. These techniques are based on reorganizing the zeros on the Shelkunoff circle. We propose a technique based on locating complex-direction zeros to synthesize arbitrary on-board antenna arrays. It is based on the analytical continuation of Green's functions and on a new representation of the complex plane (analogous to the Shelkunoff circle).
