Title: Antennas Array Synthesis - Fundamentals and Advances
Course Organizers : Prof. Andrea Massa, Prof. Tommaso Isernia
Location: 2014 IEEE International Conference on Antenna Measurements & Applications (EUCAP 2012) in Antibes Juan-les-Pins (France)
Date: November 16, 2014
Duration: Half Day

Course Description

Antenna arrays are a key-technology in several Electromagnetics applicative scenarios, including satellite and ground wireless communications, MIMO systems, remote sensing, biomedical imaging, radar, and radio‐astronomy.

Because of their wide range of application, the large number of degrees of freedom at hand 

(e.g., type, position, and excitation of each radiating element), the available architectures (fully populated, thinned, clustered, etc.), and the possible objectives (maximum directivity, minimum sidelobes, maximum beam efficiency, etc.), the synthesis of arrays turns out to be a complex task which cannot be tackled by a single methodology.

Despite a wide heterogeneity, most of the synthesis approaches share a common theoretical framework, which is of paramount importance for all engineers and students interested in such a topic.

The objective of the short‐course is therefore to provide the attendees the fundamentals of Antenna Array synthesis, starting from intuitive explanations to rigorous mathematical and methodological insights about their behavior and design. Recent synthesis methodologies will be finally reviewed with particular emphasis on innovative architectures for large arrays.
