Abstract

Analogous to phased arrays with narrowband excitation one can have timed arrays for radiating transient pulses, the role of phase being replaced by the time shifts between the application of temporal waveforms (or one common waveform) to the various array elements. Our concern here is for such arrays to operate in transmission and/or reception over very large band ratios (ratio of upper frequency to lower frequency of interest), similar to other forms of impulse radiating antennas (IRAs) using reflectors or lenses29, 30. One might think of such transient arrays as array IRAs.
