Abstract

The goal of this paper is to show that a reactively loaded antenna is able to provide maximum directivity similar to the one featured by a uniformly excited array featuring the same physical aperture. In particular, it is shown that the superdirectivity behavior of such an antenna can be achieved without compromising the relevant radiation efficiency.
