If, on the other hand, the spacing is too large, then the departing waves do not appear coherent anymore, hence, also preventing an EM wave to form' a directed beam. 28 FUNDAMENTALS OF ARRAY SIGNAL PROCESSING ........................ Fig. 15 Concept of an adaptive antenna array. From a purely antenna array point of view, a suitable inter-element spacing for beamforming is thus in the order of X/2. Sometimes, however, the antenna array is not utilised as a beamformer, but as a diversity array. This requires the arriving and departing signals to be as de-correlated as possible.

E. E+ = 0 and HQ = H , = 0. Here, k = 2 r / X is the wave number and X in [m] is the wavelength. , far-field operation. 13) and E+ = E, = 0 and He = H, = 0. e. perpendicular to the Hertzian dipole. e. they have maxima and minima at the same locations and times. Also, the EM wave turns into a plane wave consisting of two mutually orthogonal electromagnetic field components. 4 7 ANTENNA PARAMETERS & TERMINOLOGY The brief introduction to the radiation behaviour of an infinitesimal radiating element allows us to introduce some concepts which are vital for the characterisation of antenna elements and arrays.

If two antenna elements are placed very closely together, then the radiated EM field of one antenna couples into the other antenna and vice versa and therefore erasing any possible phase-shift between two waves departing from these elements; this effect is known as mutual coupling. The antenna array designer has hence to make sure that the mutual coupling between any of the elements of an antenna array is minimised. This is usually accomplished for inter-element spacing larger than X/2. If, on the other hand, the spacing is too large, then the departing waves do not appear coherent anymore, hence, also preventing an EM wave to form' a directed beam.
