Hemispherical Dielectric Antenna Arrays
Simulation time and requirements for EM computation of 2x2 and 4x4 array of HDA antennas are listed. The simulation indicates efficiency of simulation and linear scaling when number of elements is increased, not dependent on element spacing which is inherent to Method of Moments based codes.
Models of Arrays
The dimensions of the array element are given in the Hemispherical Dielectric Antenna benchmark.
