A Hybrid Deterministic/Metaheuristic Synthesis Technique for Non-Uniformly Spaced Linear Printed Antenna Arrays
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 142, 107-121, 2013
Abstract
A novel hybrid approach to the synthesis of non-uniformly spaced linear arrays of printed antennas is presented and thoroughly discussed in this paper. In order to account for parasitic mutual coupling between array elements, a dedicated optimization procedure in combination with a multiport network approach is adopted. Selected examples are included in order to assess the effectiveness and versatility of the proposed technique.
