Certain classes of aperture distributions offer the theoretical possibility of higher values of directivity than can be obtained with uniform distribution. In general, these theoretical distributions are characterized by reversals of phase over a distance short compared with the wavelength. One common feature of these superdirective distributions is the large amount of stored energy in the aperture region since very high values of field intensity are necessary to produce the same radiated field as would be produced by a uniformly- illuminated aperture with much lower values of field Intensity.

A second method of approximating the desired radiation pattern is one that enables the pattern to be specified exactly at a fixed number of points. This method, which was independently proposed by W~odward'~ and by Levinson, is panicularly appealing in that it gives the designer some physical insight into the way in which the pattern is synthesized and in addition allows some control of the pattern at points of discontinuity. ~ a s i c a l l the ~ , method consists of superposing a series of uniform-amplitude, linear-phase distributions across the aperture in such a way that the sum of the patterns produced by each of the distributions adds up to the desired pattern.
