The radiation patterns produced by arrays of axial slots on a conducting circular cylinder of infinite length are studied theoretically and experimentally. The required phase of excitation of elements to produce a beam in a certain direction are obtained by approximating the array by a section of a circular array of isotropic sources. For the given radius of the cylinder and the frequency band of interest, the approximation is found to yield satisfactory results. Radiation patterns produced by arrays of 2, 3 and 4 axial slots are numerically computed and discussed. Theoretical results are also compared with measured results and the agreement between the two has been found satisfactory.
