Abstract:

The paper deals with the problems encountered when one wishes to synthesize a specified radiation pattern with a unequally spaced array which utilizes a traveling wave feed system. A differential equation is developed which relates the amplitude distribution to the source position function of such an array. Solutions of this equation are found which allow the synthesis of a broad class of radiation fields. The theory is used to design a traveling wave fed unequally spaced array to produce the cosecant squared pattern. Theoretical and experimental results are observed to be in good agreement. Author
