    At the end of the nineties, the FDTD simulation of a basic coaxial-MSL transition typically took about an hour; real-life problems were practically impossible to solve without supercomputing resources. Thanks to the tremendous performance boost in hardware and the advent of more efficient simulation technologies, computational power no longer limits to accurately simulate the most complex electrom...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2296 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Recently developed physical bounds relate antenna performance to the polarizability of the antenna structure. Although, the polarizability can be determined numerically for arbitrary objects, it is advantageous to have simple closed form expressions for canonical geometries. Here, rational approximations are presented for the polarizability of cylinders and planar rectangles. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (512 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper the relative performances of antenna elements are assessed by combining the measured full (3D) far-field radiation patterns of each with measured angle of arrival data for a laboratory/office space. Three element types (Cavity-backed Slot, Printed Inverted-F and Dielectric Resonator) at two positions on a small mobile terminal are considered, and the terminal is tilted and rotated in...

    Four microwave imaging methods are presented with the goal of suppressing natural clutter from such images. Unlike traditional clutter filtering approaches, based on a known clutter distribution, imaging algorithms aim to suppress any scattering mechanism not “stable” across all sensor locations. The four methods considered are (a) Coherence factor correction, (b) Model-based correct... View full abstract»
