  • Compact SIW cavity MIMO antenna with enhanced bandwidth and high isolation
    • Authors: Bing-Jian Niu;Jie-Hong Tan;
      Pages: 631 - 632
      Abstract: A compact substrate-integrated-waveguide (SIW) cavity multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) antenna with enhanced bandwidth and high isolation is proposed. It is based on a triangle half-mode SIW cavity with one open edge and two edges shorted by metallic vias. By etching three slots, the single cavity can be divided into four eighth-mode sub-cavities. Two large sub-cavities with the same size are excited by two coaxial ports to construct two antenna elements and a wide slot between them is utilised as the de-coupler. Therefore, high isolation can be obtained. On the other hand, cavity energy can be coupled from the excited sub-cavities to the unexcited sub-cavities due to two narrow T-shaped slots serving as the couplers. Therefore, enhanced bandwidth can be achieved by merging two coupled modes into the required operating band. A fabricated prototype centring at 3.51 GHz has been measured. With a compact size of 0.59λ0 × 0.59λ0, enhanced bandwidth of 160 MHz, high isolation of 19.5 dB, the antenna gain of 4.9 dBi, and radiation efficiency of 72.8%, the proposed design has potential applications for fifth-generation communication.

  • Focused microwave thermotherapy technique based on microwave tomographic
    • Authors: N. Simonov;S.-H. Son;
      Pages: 633 - 634
      Abstract: The main issue of focused microwave thermotherapy is to find an appropriate model for the body's dielectric map and the target position for microwave treatment. This Letter proposes the method to synthesise the focusing array excitation vector from the preliminary evaluated dielectric image of the human body. The dielectric image is reconstructed from scattering signals measured by the same antenna array, and the array excitation vector is extracted from the singular value decomposition of the multi-static scattering data matrix. To demonstrate the proposed technique, the authors solve a two-dimensional inverse electromagnetic scattering problem and a bio-heat equation.

  • Ultra-low frequency magnetic field probe for field measurements in
           gradient coils during medical device testing
    • Authors: A. Attaran;C.M. Wawrzyn;W.B. Handler;B.A. Chronik;
      Pages: 634 - 636
      Abstract: In this Letter ultra-low frequency probes for measuring time-varying magnetic field produced in gradient coils were designed, fabricated, and tested. A 1 cm radius induction loop antenna followed by an instrumentational amplifier with a gain of 40 dB and a cutoff frequency of 30 KHz was designed to measure the magnetic field. The probe was fabricated on a single-sided PCB, FR4 of thickness 1.57 mm and copper of thickness 35 μm was employed in a dB/dt exposure system within a saline phantom using 3D printed waterproofed cover. Simulation and measurement results of the magnetic field were in good agreements.

  • Asynchronous sampling of an active non-synchronised time-to-digital
    • Authors: A. Mifsud;I. Sedgwick;N. Guerrini;
      Pages: 636 - 638
      Abstract: An architecture for a non-synchronised time-to-digital converter is presented. It makes use of a ring oscillator and a coarse counter for an increased dynamic range. This work aims to enable multiple samples of the converter's state to be acquired asynchronously during one run without having to reset it. Such architecture is useful in applications where multiple timing values are required from a single circuit. In this scenario such architecture suffers from a timing violation when both the sampling and counter clock edges happen concurrently, thus sampling the incorrect state. A solution is proposed, and an example of this implementation is also given.

  • Charge-sharing bandpass filter with independent bandwidth and centre
           frequency adjustment
    • Authors: H. Ganji;A. Jannesari;Z. Sohrabi;
      Pages: 638 - 640
      Abstract: A semi-passive charge-sharing complex bandpass filter employing positive feedback technique is proposed to control bandwidth at different centre frequencies. In contrast to the previous arts, bandwidth can be changed independent of centre frequency without any rise in the number of clock phases and switches. Also, insightful continuous-time model and block diagram of the proposed filter have been presented. The results of simulation carried out with 0.18 µm CMOS technology at 200 MHz reference frequency for centre frequencies of 10 and 20 MHz and bandwidth of 1, 3 and 7 MHz indicate the filter's ability to control the quality factor excellently.

  • Oscillator without a combinatorial loop and its threat to FPGA in data
    • Authors: T. Sugawara;K. Sakiyama;S. Nashimoto;D. Suzuki;T. Nagatsuka;
      Pages: 640 - 642
      Abstract: Virtual field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an emerging technology to put multiple users in the same FPGA fabric with logical isolation. Security researchers have studied new threats in virtual FPGA and proposed attacks on the logical isolation by exploiting analogue natures of FPGA. These attacks use an oscillator comprising a combinatorial loop to have access to the analogue domain using digital components only. Interestingly, the system in the field prohibits a combinatorial loop by a design rule check. In this Letter, the authors study if prohibiting a combinatorial loop is sufficient to thwart the conventional attacks. They negatively answer the question by showing oscillators without a combinatorial loop. They also show how to detect and reject the proposed oscillators by a design rule check.

  • Magnetless electromagnetic contactless interrogation technique for unwired
           conductive resonators
    • Authors: M. Baù;M. Ferrari;V. Ferrari;
      Pages: 642 - 644
      Abstract: An electromagnetic contactless interrogation technique to induce and sense mechanical vibrations on miniaturised electrically conductive resonant structures is presented. The structures can be used as passive resonant sensors with proximate contactless readout. No use is made of poling magnets or wired connections to the resonator that is not required to have magnetic properties. An external coil arrangement has one driving and two pickup coils. The driving coil generates a DC magnetic field and two AC magnetic fields at different frequencies: one for excitation and one for probing. Both the AC magnetic fields induce eddy currents on the conductive surface of the resonating structure. The eddy currents at the frequency of the excitation field interact with the DC magnetic field causing alternating forces, which can set the resonating structure into vibration. The eddy currents at the frequency of the probing field generate a magnetic field that is modulated by the vibrations and detected by the pickup coils. A mathematical model of the interrogation principle has been derived and confirmed by numerical solutions. The experimental demonstration is provided by results obtained on an aluminium cantilever resonator.

  • Perturbation theory to model shielding effectiveness of cavities loaded
           with electromagnetic dampeners
    • Authors: Salvatore Campione;Isak C. Reines;L. K. Warne;Caleb Grimms;Jeffery T. Williams;Roy K. Gutierrez;Rebecca S. Coats;Lorena I. Basilio;
      Pages: 644 - 646
      Abstract: It is well-known that a slotted resonant cavity with high-quality factor exhibits interior electromagnetic (EM) fields that may be even larger than the external field. The authors aim to reduce the cavity's EM fields and quality factor over a frequency band analytically, numerically, and experimentally by introducing microwave absorbing materials in the cavity. A perturbation model approach was developed to estimate the quality factor of loaded cavities, which is validated against full-wave simulations and experiments. Results with 78.7 mils (2 mm) thick ECCOSORB-MCS absorber placed on the inside cavity wall above and below the aperture slot (with only 0.026% cavity volume) result in a reduction of shielding effectiveness>19 dB and reductions in quality factor>91%, providing confirmation of the efficacy of this approach.

  • Face alignment: improving the accuracy of fast models using
           domain-specific unlabelled data and a teacher–student scheme
    • Authors: Constantino Álvarez Casado;Miguel Bordallo López;
      Pages: 646 - 648
      Abstract: Face alignment is a crucial step in multiple face analysis and recognition tasks. The current state-of-the-art is comprised by very slow methods based on deep learning that require computationally heavy inference and very fast methods based on cascades of regressors that lack the ability to cope with complicated cases or extreme poses. The authors show how collecting a small subset of unlabelled domain-specific data can improve the accuracy of fast-inference models utilising data annotated by a slower one and a teacher–student architecture. In the proposed solution, they annotate a small subset of facial images belonging to two challenging domains using a slow but more accurate model, and this data is used to incrementally train a fast one. Their results show that by adding as little as a 5% of challenging data, they can reduce the error rate in a specific domain up to 30% without losing any generalisation abilities. This training scheme has applicability in numerous computer vision and engineering problems where computational power and model size are constrained by the application and platform or real-time operation is a requirement.

  • Learning content-adaptive feature pooling for facial depression
           recognition in videos
    • Authors: Xiuzhuang Zhou;Peng Huang;Haoming Liu;Sihua Niu;
      Pages: 648 - 650
      Abstract: Recently, a deep representation of facial depression built on convolutional neural networks has shown impressive performance in video-based depression recognition. However, most existing approaches either fix the weights or using a certain heuristics to integrate the frame-level facial features, resulting in suboptimal feature aggregation in encoding the helpful while discarding noisy information in videos. To address this issue, the authors introduce the memory attention mechanism in a regression network to learn a deep discriminative depression representation, where the residual network module aims at learning frame-level deep feature, while the attention module acts as a pooling layer by adaptively learning the weights emphasising or suppressing face images with varying poses and imaging conditions. They empirically evaluate the proposed approach on a benchmark depression dataset, and the results demonstrate the superiority of their approach over the state-of-the-art alternatives.

  • Variographic analysis to evaluate the coverage area of a wireless system
           at 5.8 GHz band in a region of oil fields
    • Authors: B.R. Fialho;H.D. Andrade;G. Fontgalland;J.L.S. Paiva;I.S. Queiroz;
      Pages: 652 - 654
      Abstract: The advancement of embedded technologies has led to increasing demand for bandwidth in telecommunications solutions, this increased the researches related to the architecture of wireless networks and applied electromagnetism. In view of this, the digital transceiver radios need an adequate received signal strength indicator to enable the traffic of information by the radio propagation channel and to provide quality in the data network for the users to exercise the operational activities. The objective of this Letter is to perform the exploratory and variographic analysis of the data collected in the oil fields. Hence, evaluate the behaviour of the surface power distribution received from a wireless system in the frequency range of 5.8 GHz located in the well-automation region called Canto do Amaro, Brazil, where there are frequent communications failures for mobile stations. With the data measured in the measurement campaigns, variogram models were constructed and compared for the construction of interpolation matrices and contour maps, with these results the precision criteria of the kriging methods employed in the study region were established.

  • Transition from rectangular waveguide to empty substrate integrated gap
    • Authors: Zhiqiang Liu;Dongquan Sun;
      Pages: 654 - 656
      Abstract: Empty substrate integrated waveguide (ESIW) is a hollow SIW with its inner dielectric removed to achieve a reduced insertion loss. One of the drawbacks is the top and bottom covers need to be soldered to the middle substrate. Gap waveguide (GW) technology solves the contact issue utilising contactless electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) structures. Therefore, empty substrate integrated GW (ESIGW) is a transmission line having both advantages of ESIW and GW. In this Letter, a wideband transition from rectangular waveguide (RW) to ESIGW is presented. RW is firstly matched to reduced-height RW using E-plane stepped waveguides. Then, a short substrate integrated GW (SIGW) section is introduced between the reduced-height RW and the ESIGW. This section not only serves as an impedance matching component, it also connects the two sides of the ESIGW and maintains the integrity of the substrate. To broaden the bandwidth of the transition, a triangular dielectric is added at the end of the ESIGW. A Ka-band back-to-back prototype of the transition is designed and fabricated. In addition, TRL calibration is used to measure the transmission performance of the ESIGW. The measured results show that the transition works well over the entire Ka-band.

  • Substrate resistivity influence on silicon–germanium phototransistor
    • Authors: Z.G. Tegegne;J. Nanni;C. Viana;G. Tartarini;J.-L. Polleux;
      Pages: 656 - 658
      Abstract: This Letter presents the impact of silicon substrate resistivity on SiGe phototransistors. SiGe phototransistors were fabricated on the commercially available SiGe/Si bipolar technology. The performances of the phototransistors fabricated based on low- and the high-resistive silicon substrate are compared. The phototransistor based on low-resistivity (LR) silicon substrate provides a responsivity of more than double compared to the phototransistor based on a high-resistivity silicon substrate that is fabricated by using the same bipolar transistor technology. The phototransistor fabricated on LR substrate exhibits low-frequency responsivity up to 1.35 A/W (at 50 MHz).

  • Low surface damage during ohmic contact formation in AlGaN/GaN HEMT by
           selective laser annealing
    • Authors: Mingchen Hou;Gang Xie;Kuang Sheng;
      Pages: 658 - 660
      Abstract: The formation of ohmic contact in AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistor (HEMT) with low surface damage by selective laser annealing is reported. With selective laser annealing, the device exhibits a smaller sheet resistance, which is 74.9% of the device with the conventional rapid thermal annealing process. The dynamic ON-resistance is 1.35 times higher than the static ON-resistance after off-state drain voltage stress of 200 V, which benefits from the low surface defects using laser annealing. While the dynamic ON-resistance with rapid thermal annealing shows 8.66 times higher than the static ON-resistance after off-state drain voltage stress of 125 V. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy analysis indicates that the AlGaN surface damage related to the oxidation reaction under the high-temperature condition is eliminated by using selective laser annealing, even in the air ambient.

  • Mesa-type quantum cascade lasers fabricated by using inductively coupled
           plasma reactive ion etching
    • Authors: B.T. Seok;S.Y. Kim;D.H. Jun;J.H. Jang;
      Pages: 660 - 661
      Abstract: Mesa-type and ridge-type InGaAs/InAlAs double-channel quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) emitting 8.15 μm wavelength were fabricated by using metal–organic chemical vapour deposition and inductively coupled plasma reactive ion etching techniques. The output power, threshold current, characteristic temperature (T0), and slope efficiency were compared. The smooth and vertical sidewall profile enabled mesa-type QCL to exhibit the higher output power, the lower threshold current, and the higher slope efficiency than the ridge-type QCL.

  • Vertical SiC taper with a small angle fabricated by slope transfer method
    • Authors: Yu Xin;Gregory Pandraud;Paddy J. French;
      Pages: 661 - 663
      Abstract: In this Letter, a slope transfer method to fabricate vertical waveguide couplers is proposed. This method utilises wet etched Si as a mask, and takes advantage of dry etching selectivity between Si and SiC, to successfully transfer the profile from the Si master into SiC. By adopting this method, a

  • BER-optimal selection of peak frequency deviation for RDS2
    • Authors: D. Saveri;G. Baruffa;L. Rugini;D.A. Samo;A. Ladanyi;
      Pages: 663 - 665
      Abstract: RDS2 is a newly proposed enhancement of the radio data system (RDS) for frequency modulation (FM) broadcasting, aiming at increasing the data rate. This Letter investigates the BER of the data streams of RDS2. Specifically, the authors propose a selection criterion for the peak frequency deviations of the individual data streams, based on a minimax-BER approach. They also theoretically verify that symbol shifting reduces the peak deviation of the RDS2 data signal by an amount of 25%. Simulation results confirm their theoretical findings.

  • Hybrid Kaczmarz and coordinate-descent iterations for signal detection in
           massive MIMO systems
    • Authors: Yinman Lee;
      Pages: 665 - 667
      Abstract: A hybrid Kaczmarz and coordinate-descent (H-KCD) iterative algorithm is proposed for signal detection in massive MIMO systems. Together with the specially-designed orthogonal projection and decision operation during iterations, this approach outperforms the standalone usage of either the Kaczmarz or coordinate-descent iteration, and gives better error-rate performance than the linear minimum mean-squared error detection. Essentially, since the Gram matrix is not required for the proposed H-KCD scheme, it owns lower total computational complexity than some state-of-the-art iterative methods.

  • Zero-bias mitigation method based on optimal correlation interval for
           digital code phase discriminator
    • Authors: Chunjiang Ma;Zhicheng Lv;Xiaomei Tang;Zhibin Xiao;Guangfu Sun;
      Pages: 667 - 669
      Abstract: In time synchronisation systems, the code phase of the spread spectrum signal is an important characteristic that can provide users with high-precision and unambiguous observation results. However, digital code phase discriminators have limited sampling frequencies that distort the signal correlation peak and generates a zero-bias code-phase estimate. In this Letter, the authors evaluate and analyse the zero-phase deviations of digital code phases. An optimal correlation interval design method, based on a code phase discriminator that can effectively suppress the zero-crossing deviation, is also proposed. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can reduce the deviation of 96.5% and effectively improve the measurement accuracy of the code phase.
