Microstrip decoupling networks for low-order multi-port arrays with reduced element spacing
Chua, Ping Tyng & Coetzee, Jacob (2005) Microstrip decoupling networks for low-order multi-port arrays with reduced element spacing. Microwave and Optical Technology Letters, 46(6), pp. 592-597.
An array of monopole elements with reduced element spacing of λ/6 to λ/20 is considered for application in digital beam-forming and direction-finding. The small element spacing introduces strong mutual coupling between the array elements. This paper discusses that decoupling can be achieved analytically for arrays with three elements and describes Kuroda’s identities to realize the lumped elements of the derived decoupling network. Design procedures and equations are proposed. Experimental results are presented. The decoupled array has a bandwidth of 1% and a superdirective radiation pattern.
