The properties of this 3-port array are governed by strong mutual coupling. It is shown that for signal-to-noise maximization, it is not sufficient to adjust the weights to compensate for the effects of mutual coupling. The necessity for an RF-decoupling network (RF-DN) and its simple realization are shown. The array with closely spaced elements together with the RF-DN represent a superdirective antenna with a directivity of more than 10 dBi. It is shown that the required fractional frequency bandwidth and the available unloaded Q of the antenna and RF-DN structure determine the lower limit for the element spacing. © 2003 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.||Source Title:||Microwave and Optical Technology Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/54828||ISSN:||08952477||DOI:||10.1002/mop.10782|
