Standard Chebyshev and Taylor reduced sidelobe synthesis techniques ignore mutual coupling, and so can lead to pattern errors where the resulting array pattern departs significantly from the desired pattern. Two methods for correcting this error are described and examples of their application to eight-element dipole arrays are presented. One approach uses characteristic modes, while the other method employs a simpler array mode and point matching. The techniques can also be applied to synthesis of nonuniform arrays.
