Results with driven and superdirective two element copper arrays which demonstrate how frequency optimization affects the phase difference between the elements' currents are presented. The current phase differences resulting after parasitic superdirective array frequency optimization to the theoretical phase differences required for driven superdirectivity and to phase differences computationally determined to be optimal for particular driven superdirective arrays are compared. Comparisons are… CONTINUE READING
