Abstract

A new technique of shaping the radiation pattern of an antenna array is presented. The technique aims at finding the appropriate geometry of the antenna array as well as the excitation of the array elements in order to produce a radiation pattern of the desired shape. A suitable optimization procedure is applied using a particle swarm optimization algorithm. The technique has been successfully applied to collinear arrays and seems to be suitable for beam- forming of antenna arrays used by mobile communications base stations.
