Finite and infinite arrays, layout visualization, mutual coupling, embedded pattern, pattern multiplication
Arrays are several antennas connected and arranged in a regular structure to form a single antenna. Arrays produce radiation patterns that when combined have characteristics that individual antenna radiation patterns cannot produce.

- Array Catalog Elements
Types of array elements in Antenna Toolbox™ array library
- Mutual Coupling
Active or scan impedance, array factor and pattern multiplication, coupling matrix, isolated or embedded element pattern.
Side lobe control, beam scanning.
- Grating Lobes
Grating lobes are the maxima of the main beam, as predicted by the pattern multiplication theorem.
- Rotate Antennas and Arrays
Orient the antenna and array in 3D space.
