Antenna array feeds
|Issue Date:||2008||Citation:||Coetzee, J.C.,Yu, Y. (2008). A compact monopole array with decoupled ports. 2008 IEEE International RF and Microwave Conference, RFM 2008 : 112-116. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1109/RFM.2008.4897388||Abstract:||In compact arrays, tight element spacing results in strong mutual coupling. This may cause severe system performance degradation. The effects of the coupling can be alleviated through the introduction of a decoupling network. An alternative solution comprises of a multi-port feed network which excites the antenna elements in accordance with the eigenvectors of the scattering parameter matrix of the array. This paper describes the design of a novel 4- element monopole array. The modal feed network of the array is implemented as a planar ring-type circuit in stripline with four coupled line sections. This implementation offers a significant reduction in size, resulting in a very compact adaptive array. © 2008 IEEE.||Source Title:||2008 IEEE International RF and Microwave Conference, RFM 2008||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/68741||ISBN:||9781424428663||DOI:||10.1109/RFM.2008.4897388|
