This communication considers the synthesis of interleaved antenna
arrays with shared and inactive elements. A hybrid genetic algorithm
(GA) where the initial population is seeded with good solutions is proposed.
A number of seeding schemes are considered and themost effective of these
are identified. The proposed algorithm is shown to reliably produce results
with sidelobe level (SLL) values which are close to the optimum and to converge
faster than the other algorithms considered. However, some of the
seeding schemes mislead the GA and actually produce worse results than
Adesign approach for printed planar slot array antennas is presented. The antenna array consists of half-wavelength slot radiators
positioned on a rectangular grid, and a slotline feed network. Three planar slot array ...
This paper presents a dual-band dual-polarized antenna array design for WLAN applications. Four double-dipole elements are orthogonally interleaved to facilitate operation in both the
standard WLAN frequency bands (IEEE ...
