Majority of the theoretical results related to antenna arrays are valid for uniform arrays. On the other hand, not much is known about optimal performance of non-uniform arrays. Study the recent works published by the CEM group members regarding the optimization of realized gain and matching of N-port antennas (arrays) and try to synthesize array maximizing realized gain. Take into account ohmic losses and realistic matching. Determine the bounds for optimal performance and find sub-optimal, yet realizable, counterparts. The resulting samples could be manufactured and measured in anechoic chamber.
