I am extremely ignorant of Optimum Golum Rulers and their practical
applications but I just thought I'd start with a Wikipedia article.
If you look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golomb_ruler 
"One practical use of Golomb rulers is in the design of phased array
radio antennas such as radio telescopes. Antennae in an [0,1,4,6] Golomb
ruler configuration can often be seen at cell sites."

Someone more knowledgable can give more information I'm sure but I hope
that gives you a starting point.
