A comparison of Taylor h = 5 and Taylor one-parameter distributions for 25 dB SLR is interesting. Figs. 22 show the space factors; the far-out sidelobes of the one-parameter are roughly 5 dB lower. 85 for one-parameter. Fig. 25 shows the distributions. Surprisingly, one may note that these differ only in the 'tails', where Linear arrays 35 the h has a much higher pedestal. Thus, the n distribution should be used where efficiency (directivity) is crucial, and the one-parameter distribution should be used where far-out sidelobes are important.

SLR and L[\. It is interesting to note that for each L/X there is an SLR giving maximum directivity. Smaller SLRs (higher sidelobes) represent significant power contained in the equal-level sidelobes, while larger SLRs yield lower efficiency due to the wider beam associated with lower sidelobes. Taylor n source: The continuous equivalent of the Dolph-Chebyshev array space factor was developed by Taylor158 and was called the 'ideal' line source. This distribution has a pattern with all sidelobes of equal level, so that intuitively it provides the narrowest beamwidth and highest aperture efficiency for a given sidelobe level of any non-superdirective distribution.

The effect of the grating lobes can be seen around d = X. For larger spacings the directivity increases until, around d = 2X, another drop represents the appearance of second-order grating lobes.
