    The description and characterization of an electroexplosive device (EED) is presented. The structure is designed, using hybrid microelectronic fabrication techniques, to be inherently immune to spurious radio frequency (RF) signals injected directly or radiatively coupled in the lead wires of an EED. The structure also rejects low-frequency components of a coupled signal caused by rectification. T... View full abstract»

    A small magnetic flux probe is described. It exhibits a magnetometer-like response over the frequency range of 20 Hz to 200 kHz with an effective antenna height of 1 m. The E-field equivalent noise floor of this device is ~10 μV/m√Hz at 10 kHz. A switchable high-pass filter is included to allow the measurement of very low frequency fields in the presence of strong 50-400-Hz power... View full abstract»

    The possibility of using a microstrip patch antenna as a standard transmitting or receiving antenna is discussed. The intrinsic properties of the substrate used for the antenna are determined by careful impedance measurements. Experimental results indicate that the transmitting characteristics of a microstrip antenna can be theoretically determined from its geometry. The microstrip patch antenna d... View full abstract»

    The response of an overhead wire illuminated by a simulated nuclear electromagnetic pulse (NEMP) was experimentally investigated. The wire is 70 m long, 7 mm in diameter, and situated 5 m above the ground. It is located 20 m away from a hybrid-type EMP simulator. The simulator is a resistively loaded elliptical loop structure with its pulse generator located 20 m above the ground. The overhead wir... View full abstract»

    The author discusses the influence of depth on the transmission of narrow slots and presents curves of calculated and measured transmission that exhibit depth resonances. The measurements are made by illuminating the front face of an aluminum box that is 50 cm on each side. At these resonances, the transmission is shown to be much higher than predicted by zero-depth models View full abstract»

  • Steady-state and shock currents induced by ELF electric fields in a human body and a nearby vehicle

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):59 - 65

    Steady-state currents induced in a human body and a nearby car by 60-Hz electric field of a high-voltage power line are determined, taking into account the coupling between the body and the car. The equivalent circuits for the body and the car are constructed on the basis of their calculated open-circuit voltages and short-circuit currents. A theoretical model and a method for predicting the shock... View full abstract»

  • On the inclusion of loss in time-domain solutions of electromagnetic interaction problems

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):1 - 4

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (268 KB)

    A computational approach for including the effects of a dispersive loss in direct time-domain solutions for electromagnetic (EM) field problems is discussed. If such problems are solved in the frequency domain, a dispersive impedance that models the loss can be easily incorporated in the solution. In the time domain, this effect is taken into account through a convolution integral, which involves ... View full abstract»

  • Technique to select the optimum modulation indices for suppression of undesired signals for simultaneous range and data operations

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):9 - 17
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (584 KB)

    A technique for searching for the optimum set of modulation indices for phase-modulated residual carrier communication systems is presented. The emphasis is on simultaneous range and data operations. The technique proposed suppresses the undesired signals and allows for a specified bit error rate (BER) degradation in the data channel. At the same time, the technique provides optimum power division... View full abstract»

  • On the limitation of the weak-coupling assumption for crosstalk analysis based on quasi-TEM propagation

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):28 - 37
    Cited by:  Papers (8)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (780 KB)

    The limitation of the weak-coupling assumption for the case of two transmission lines with a common ground is examined. The analysis is based on the mathematical structure of solutions to the telegrapher's equations, and, therefore, quasi-transverse electromagnetic (TEM) propagation is assumed. All loss is neglected, and the lines are assumed to be symmetric. Requirements that are necessary for th... View full abstract»

    An electromagnetic model for the response of multiconductor connectors is presented. The model is based on the canonical problem of the electromagnetic response of a thin circumferential slot in the shield of a cylindrical multiconductor transmission line (MTL). The problem is formulated for a shielded MTL of arbitrary cross section with impressed sources driving the interior of the MTL. The probl... View full abstract»

  • Local, high-frequency analysis of the fields in a mode-stirred chamber

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):53 - 58
    Cited by:  Papers (50)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (412 KB)

    The fields inside a mode-stirred chamber are analyzed by a local plane-wave method. This approach has the advantage of being applicable to nonseparable geometries, for which the more standard modal method of analysis is not possible, and gives insight into the nature of the various contributions to the total field. Results are given for the quality factor and for the fields near the walls of the c... View full abstract»
