  • High-Gain and Wideband Antenna Arrays: Introducing Three Patch Antenna Arrays to Show the Advantages of SPPWs Used in a Feed Network

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (8069 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Spoof planar plasmonic waveguides (SPPWs) are a new type of low-loss surface wave transmission line whose modes are tightly confined near the SPPWs. Spoof surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) propagating in the SPPW can be efficiently converted into free-space radiation by high-efficiency antennas. In this article, three patch antenna arrays are introduced to show the advantages of SPPWs used in a fe... View full abstract»

  • Improving Security Screening: A Comparison of Multistatic Radar Configurations for Human Body Imaging

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5204 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Active millimeter-wave radar can be used for imaging concealed objects and detecting contraband at security checkpoints. Current state-of-the-art systems are based on monostatic or quasimonostatic configurations that can misrepresent areas of the target when the specular reflection is oriented away from the incident direction. This article presents a fully multistatic millimeter-wave imaging archi... View full abstract»

  • A Novel Beamforming Technique: Introducing a Convex Constrained Optimization and Compressed-Sensing Model

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6181 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this article, the problem of providing robustness to the array receiver configuration so as to achieve robust mainlobe gain and low sidelobes under the highly dynamic condition is addressed. We introduce a novel convex constrained optimization and compressed-sensing (CS) beamforming model (CCOB-CS) in which spatially sparse signals are reconstructed using an orthogonal matching pursuit (OMP) al...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (8057 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this article, a broadband circularly polarized (CP) reflectarray (RA) is presented. A Ka-band multilayer-CP RA antenna is designed and further validated through measurements. The two orthogonal slot arms are angularly rotated for the phase compensation in the RA design. A 25 × 25 RA with a physical area of 90 × 90 mm2 (9 × 9 λo2) is d... View full abstract»

  • Aspects of High-Q Tunable Antennas and Their Deployment for 4G Mobile Communications [Antenna Applications Corner]

    Tunable antennas are very promising for future generations of mobile communications, where broad frequency coverage will be increasingly required. This article describes the design of small high quality factor (high-Q) tunable antennas based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) that are capable of operation in the frequency ranges of 600-960 MHz and 1,710-2,690 MHz. Some aspects of high-Q tuna... View full abstract»

  • Antenna Range Illuminator Based on a Septum Polarizer and a Dual-Mode Horn [Measurements Corner]

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6588 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this article, an original design of a range illuminator based on a stepped-septum polarizer and a dual-mode horn is discussed. However, the designed polarizer can also be used with other waveguide antennas, such as pyramidal horns and corrugated horns. A simple procedure for determining the initial septum geometry for the subsequent optimization is described, and based on this, a two-step septu... View full abstract»

    This article shows how the fundamental concepts of multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) transmission can be illustrated using cheap audio equipment. Experiments are proposed that cover both diversity and spatial multiplexing techniques. Regarding the former, maximal-ratio combining (MRC) receive diversity and Alamouti transmit diversity are examined. For the latter, vertical-Bell Laboratories la... View full abstract»
