Synthesis of Dolph-Chebyshev Like Patterns from Non-Uniform, Non-Linear and Randomized Arrays
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research B, Vol. 82, 17-30, 2018
Abstract
A pattern-synthesis approach previously described by the author is used here to develop Dolph-Chebyshev-like patterns for some unconventional array geometries. The approach is briefly summarized and then demonstrated for various non-uniformly spaced arrays and nonlinear geometries. Geometries discussed include a V-shaped array, and x-aligned arrays having non-uniform element spacing as well as having elements located off the x-axis in the x-y plane. Arrays having randomly located elements are also exploted. The goal is to show that patterns having equipple sidelobes can be produced by a variety of array geometries.
