The Synthesis of Complex-Angle Zeros for on-Board Antenna Arrays
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 80, 369-380, 2008
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).
