FIG. 5.

Oscillation properties of coupled two-element oscillators as a function of difference between the individual frequencies of elements. (a) Normalized oscillation frequencies, (b) phase differences between elements, and (c) combined output power relative to single oscillator radiated to the direction normal to the antenna surface.

FIG. 6.

Measured oscillation spectra of a coupled two-element oscillator. Frequency differences between two RTDs are (a) 2 GHz and (b) 4 GHz, which are controlled by the bias voltage applied to one of the RTDs. Upper and lower curves in each diagram are individual and simultaneous oscillation of the two-elements, respectively.

FIG. 11.

The influence of frequency distribution of array elements. (a) An example of frequency distribution used in the calculation, (b) combined output power of the fundamental mode relative to single oscillator radiated to the front direction [ in Fig. 7(b)] as a function of maximum frequency difference , and (c) radiation pattern of the combined output power for different values of .
