This manuscript has been accepted for publication on IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation.
The paper adopts an inverse problem approach to investigate the far zone radiation of a collection of 2D linear sources. By the evaluation of the number of independent pieces of information, i.e. the number of degrees of freedom (NDF), and the analysis of the reconstruction of a focusing beam, the role of the geometry can be examined in determining the set of possible radiation patterns. The results are relevant to the radiation pattern synthesis problem, since they allow to define the optimal source geometry for the hemispherical coverage with identical radiation patterns.
