  • Toward a flexible and adaptive wireless hub by embedding power amplifier
           thinned silicon chip and antenna in a polymer foil
    • Authors: Golzar Alavi; Sefa Özbek, Mahsa Rasteh, Markus Grözing, Manfred Berroth, Jan Hesselbarth, Joachim N. Burghartz
      Pages: 864 - 871
      Abstract: A flexible and adaptive energy-efficient high-speed wireless hub is developed in polymer foil as a Hybrid System-in-Foil (HySiF) using Chip-Film Patch (CFP) technology. In this matter, the SiGe BiCMOS silicon chips (2.39 × 1.65 mm2) are thinned down to 45 μm and are embedded face-up inside a two-polymer CFP carrier. The active pads of the embedded silicon chips inside foil are extended to the surface of the foil to interconnect to the antenna on the foil. The integrated hybrid system has a signal transmission at 5–6 GHz frequency band. The overall thickness of the system is below 100 μm and its bendability is down to 4 mm radius of curvature. The designed and fabricated PA silicon chips operate at 50 mA with a 1.5 V supply voltage. Therefore, in addition to the high lateral thermal resistance of the thinned chip, self-heating loop inside polymer due to the low thermal conductivity of the embedding polymer raises the system temperature. Consequently, the thermal behavior and RF performance of the PA chip under different conditions are investigated. Moreover, the antenna with the required carrier frequency is simulated, fabricated, and measured on top of the polymer foil as a stand-alone system in the flexible CFP.

  • A flexible wide band single fed slot antenna with circular polarizing
           rotated elliptical ground and impulse response
    • Authors: Sherif R. Zahran; Mahmoud A. Abdalla, Abdelhamid Gaafar
      Pages: 872 - 884
      Abstract: In this paper, a flexible single fed planar circular polarized slot antenna is proposed for Internet of Things wideband applications. The antenna flexibility is achieved by employing a mechanically bendable liquid crystalline polymer substrate. The overall antenna volume is 50 mm × 42 mm × 0.1 mm. The antenna design uses 45° rotated elliptical ground structure for generating circular polarized radiation over wideband spectrum. Two parametrical analyses targeting the slot ground are introduced in order to achieve the most efficient design. The final antenna design demonstrates a good matching in terms of reflection coefficient (

  • A compact microstrip lowpass filter with wide stopband using rectangular
           resonator and high impedance elements
    • Authors: Seyed Hamed Kazemi; Mohsen Hayati
      Pages: 885 - 893
      Abstract: In this paper, a microstrip lowpass filter using rectangular resonators is designed. To weaken the undesired harmonics from 10 to 20 GHz, a stair-shaped suppressing cell and also high impedance elements at the edges are utilized. It should be noted that for analyzing the proposed filter, an LC model is used and the design is done in such a way that the coupling effects of the close-up lines are reduced as much as possible, so that they are ignored in the circuit analysis. The designed filter has a cut-off frequency of 1.01 GHz and the transition band is only 0.1 GHz. In addition to compression of dimensions, the stopband bandwidth is 18.7 times the cut-off frequency (18.7 × fc). The attenuation rate in the passband reaches 0.081 dB which indicates that the passband is flat. In the stopband, disturbing harmonics have been dampened to −23.5 dB and a good bandwidth is achieved. The figure of merit of the proposed filter is 180 387 and it is a good benchmark for the overall comparison of the proposed filter with the previous works.

  • A novel dual-band filter based on single-cavity CTSRR-loaded triangular
           substrate-integrated waveguide
    • Authors: Q. F. Geng; H. J. Guo, Y. Y. Zhu, W. Huang, S. S. Deng, T. Yang
      Pages: 894 - 898
      Abstract: In this paper, a novel single-cavity triangular substrate-integrated waveguide (TSIW) dual-band filter loading a complementary triangular split ring resonator (CTSRR) is proposed, which has three transmission zeros (TZs) in the stopband in total. The dual-band response is achieved by the CTSRR and the degenerate modes of the TSIW cavity. In order to control the TZs, we propose two adjustment techniques, shift feeding technique and adding via perturbation. In addition, the CTSRR etched on the surface can produce a new TZ in the upper first-passband. Finally, a dual-band filter with three TZs is simulated, fabricated, and measured. There is a good agreement between the simulated results and measured ones.

  • A fully reconfigurable bandpass-to-bandpass-with-embedded-stopband filter
           with an ultra-wide 0.09–1.41 GHz bandwidth tuning range
    • Authors: Bo-Zhang Lan; Yan Qu, Chen-Jiang Guo, Jun Ding
      Pages: 899 - 908
      Abstract: A varactor-based fully reconfigurable microstrip bandpass-to-bandpass-with-embedded-stopband filter is presented in this paper. This filter offers wide center frequency and bandwidth tuning flexibility under both bandpass mode and bandpass-with-embedded-stopband mode. The entire tuning ability is based on multiple mode resonator theory and external quality factor tuning structure for bandpass mode and the introduction of transmission zeros (TZs) for bandpass-with-embedded-stopband mode. Under the bandpass mode, the center frequency tuning range is 0.96–1.45 GHz and the bandwidth can be tuned from 0.09 to 1.41 GHz with a fixed center frequency at 1.22 GHz. Under bandpass-with-embedded-stopband mode, the center frequency and bandwidth can be tuned from 0.94 to 1.61 GHz and 0.2–0.33 GHz, respectively. Good agreements are shown between simulated and measured results.

  • 3.5 THz quantum-cascade laser emission from dual diagonal feedhorns

      Pages: 909 - 917
      Abstract: Antenna-pattern measurements obtained from a double-metal supra-terahertz-frequency (supra-THz) quantum cascade laser (QCL) are presented. The QCL is mounted within a mechanically micro-machined waveguide cavity containing dual diagonal feedhorns. Operating in continuous-wave mode at 3.5 THz, and at an ambient temperature of ~60 K, QCL emission has been directed via the feedhorns to a supra-THz detector mounted on a multi-axis linear scanner. Comparison of simulated and measured far-field antenna patterns shows an excellent degree of correlation between beamwidth (full-width-half-maximum) and sidelobe content and a very substantial improvement when compared with unmounted devices. Additionally, a single output has been used to successfully illuminate and demonstrate an optical breadboard arrangement associated with a future supra-THz Earth observation space-borne payload. Our novel device has therefore provided a valuable demonstration of the effectiveness of supra-THz diagonal feedhorns and QCL devices for future space-borne ultra-high-frequency Earth-observing heterodyne radiometers.

  • 5G multi-element/port antenna design for wireless applications:a review
    • Authors: Parul Gupta; Leeladhar Malviya, S. V. Charhate
      Pages: 918 - 938
      Abstract: Fifth generation (5G) is the current hot topic of the world's leading telecommunication companies. The compact designs of antennas made it possible for them to resonate at higher frequencies, thus to enable the devices to attain higher data rate as compared to 4G technology. Data rate of 5G technology for low mobility users is expected to be 50.0 Gbps and for high mobility users it is 5.0 Gbps. On the other hand, International telecommunication union's objective for 5G is 3 times more spectrally efficient thanlong-term evolution (LTE). The paper has carried out meticulous study over the impact of 5G antennas on the size of antenna, size/type of substrate, gain, efficiency, and isolation, etc. Also, different arrays andmultiple input multiple outputs (MIMOs) with patch antenna, magneto electric-dipole, microstrip grid array antenna, folded dipole, series-fed array, connected antenna array, MIMO are studied. The paper also includes the existing technology i.e 4G LTE and their isolation enhancement approaches. Many of the designs used the reflector plates to reduce the back lobe radiation problem in MIMO/array antennas to increase front-to-back ratio. The gain in 5G antennas can be increased by using balun, parasitic element as directors, multiple notch structures, three identical slot sub-arrays, etc. Mathematical equations of multi-element/port antennas are included to model the designed antennas. The beam steering is also included for the 5G technology in this paper.

  • Design criteria of X-wave launchers for millimeter-wave applications
    • Authors: Walter Fuscaldo; Santi C. Pavone, Davide Comite, Guido Valerio, Matteo Albani, Mauro Ettorre, Alessandro Galli
      Pages: 939 - 947
      Abstract: Bessel-beam launchers are promising and established technologies for focusing applications at microwaves. Their use in time-domain leads to the definition of a new class of devices, namely, the X-wave launchers. In this work, we discuss the focusing features of such devices with a specific interest at millimeter waves. The spatial resolutions of such systems are described under a rigorous mathematical framework to derive novel operating conditions for designing X-wave launchers. These criteria might be particularly appealing for specific millimeter-wave applications. In particular, it is shown that an electrically large aperture is not strictly required, as it seemed from previous works. However, the use of an electrically small aperture would demand a considerably wideband capability. The various discussions presented here provide useful information for the design of X-wave launchers. This aspect is finally shown with reference to the practical design of two different X-wave launchers.

  • Ultra-wideband elliptical patch antenna for microwave imaging of wood
    • Authors: Tale Saeidi; Idris Ismail, Wong Peng Wen, Adam R. H. Alhawari
      Pages: 948 - 966
      Abstract: This paper presents the design of an elliptical shape ultra-wide band antenna for imaging of wood. The antenna is constructed comprising an elliptical shape of patch loaded by a stub to resonate at lower bands, strip loading at the back, and chamfered ground. Despite having miniaturized dimensions of 20 mm × 20 mm, the proposed antenna shows better results compared to recent studies. The simulation results depict a good ultra-wide bandwidth from 2.68 to 16 GHz, and 18.2–20 GHz. Besides, the proposed antenna has two low-frequency bands at 0.89–0.92 and 1.52–1.62 GHz, maximum gain of 5.48 dB, and maximum directivity of 6.9 dBi. The measurement outcomes are performed in air, plywood, and high-density wood and show a good agreement with the simulated results done using electromagnetic simulator CST. In addition to that, the measurement results of S-parameters, transmitted and received signals show a good agreement with the simulated results. Besides, the measured results illustrate a good isolation and uniform illumination among arrays as well as the received signals' shapes do not change in different environments, but only the amplitude. Hence, the proposed antenna seems to be adequate for microwave imaging of wood.

      Abstract: In this article, a multiband antenna for various wireless communications is proposed for WWAN, Bluetooth, WiMAX, WLAN, and Downlink satellite system. The antenna consists of a radiating patch and a rectangular ground plane with four L-shaped stubs which are embedded as side arms to obtain a resonating band for WWAN (1.9GHz), Bluetooth (2.4 GHz), WiMAX (2.5, 3.5, and 5.5 GHz), and WLAN (5.5 GHz) wireless systems and a C-shaped stub is etched on the radiating patch to obtain a higher WLAN band (2.4, 5.2, and 5.8 GHz) and a satellite downlink system (7.5 GHz). The proposed antenna exhibits circular polarization at WWAN band and linear polarization for remaining applications. Also, the proposed antenna exhibits an omnidirectional radiation pattern.

      Abstract: A compact circularly polarized (CP) rectenna with low profile and high efficiency based on the artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) is proposed in this paper. The receiving CP antenna is a coplanar stripline fed dual rhombic loop with an AMC reflector. The proposed AMC reflector not only improves the antenna gain to 9.8 dBi but also decreases the profile to 0.1 λ0. The AMC reflector also makes the antenna have a harmonic suppression function so the low pass filter between the rectifying circuit and the antenna could be omitted and the rectenna has a compact structure. According to the measured results, the rectenna has the highest conversion efficiency of 76% on the load of 240 Ω with the received power of 117.5 mW. When the linearly polarized transmitting antenna is rotated, the conversion efficiency of the CP rectenna maintains a constant high conversion efficiency of 74%. The compact structure and CP operation of the rectenna made it a good candidate of the wireless battery for some electronic devices and far-distance microwave power transmission.

  • A bi-directional dual-bandwidth microwave absorber for applications in X
           and Ku bands
    • Authors: Gobinda Sen; Santanu Das
      Pages: 983 - 987
      Abstract: This paper presents a microwave absorber with dual absorption bandwidth response based upon the direction of electromagnetic wave incident on the surface. The design unit cell comprises a staircase shape metallic patch on the top plane and an array of 2×2 meander square ring shape dual layer frequency selective surfaces (FSS) in the middle and bottom planes. The relative absorption bandwidth (RAB) of 39.40% (5 GHz) with more than 90% absorption of incident wave power is achieved when an electromagnetic wave impinges normally on the top plane making it suitable for wideband applications in the X and Ku bands. For the wave incident normally on the bottom plane, the same structure gives narrow band absorption with an RAB of 2.29% (260 MHz) for more than 90% absorption around 11 GHz. Thus, this bi-directional ability of the proposed design is found to be suitable for radar absorbing material, multi-bandwidth, and diverse applications. The absorption performance is also studied for different values of incident angle. The distribution of surface currents on the staircase patch and on the two FSS layers at resonant frequencies of 11 GHz and 14 GHz is analyzed to elaborate the absorption phenomenon physically. The prototype of this design is fabricated and the experimental results are found to be closely following the simulated one.
