Abstract:

An iterative synthesis procedure is presented and applied to the problem of computing the complex aperture distribution of an antenna, given its far field magnitude pattern. The methods employed are applicable to antennas composed of either discrete or continuously distributed apertures, flush-mounted in a finite or infinite ground plane. The solutions obtainable with the procedure are particularly useful for subsequent numerical computation of an antennas radiation pattern performance, when introduced into a different structural environment. Several example solutions are presented to demonstrate the procedure and to point out specific techniques found useful in its implementation. Author
