Abstract : The element spacings in non-uniformly spaced antenna arrays which give the maximum gains are determined. Gains higher than those of uniformly spaced arrays are obtained. The formulations cover arrays of isotropic and directive sources. The method of solution is described and the results of several representative cases are presented. It is found that usually the optimum spacings required for maximum gain are almost uniform. (Author)
