    For the transmission-line modes, a multiconductor transmission line in a multilayered dielectric medium can be characterized by four matrix parameters the capacitance matrices [C], the inductance matrix [L], the shunt conductance matrix [G], and the series resistance matrix [R]. The first two matrices [C] and [L] can be obtained from equivalent electrostatic and magnetostatic problems. The conduct... View full abstract»

    The solutions of electromagnetic field equations of the broad-side-coupled dielectric image guide are derived using the mode-matching technique. The even- and odd-mode dispersion characteristics are presented as a function of the dimensional parameters of the guide for the low-loss mode for which the principal electric field is parallel to the metal image planes.

    A new closed absorption cell, which has been developed for a passive frequency standard, is described. This cell is made from a cylindrical quartz tube with copper wire wound around it. For the limiting case of the zero pitch helix, Maxwell's equations are graphically solved, which show that the cell is operating like a monomode waveguide at 23.8 GHz, the frequency of interest, and can be used fro...

    The waveguiding characteristics of electromagnetic TE waves in a ferrite slab periodically loaded with metal strips are investigated. Theoretical formulation by means of the spectral domain approach is employed to obtain the Brillouin diagrams of two types of volume modes and a surface mode. It is found that the nonreciprocal properties of waves depend on the metal strip profile and bias magnetic ... View full abstract»

  • A Method of Avoiding the Edge Current Divergence in Perturbation Loss Calculations (Short Paper)

    Cited by:  Papers (12)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (336 KB)  

    From a consideration of the properties near the edge of a flat finite-thickness strip and an elliptic cross-section strip, it is shown that the divergence that arises in the perturbation method near a sharp edge can be handled by halting the loss calculation at a definite distance just short of the strip edge. This distance can be expressed in terms of the radius of curvature at the tip for a roun... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (23)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1032 KB)  

    A quasi-optical method for measuring the complex permittivity of materials is described. The determination is derived from measurements of the transmission of a perpendicularly polarized wave through a dielectric slab at different angles of incidence. This relatively simple method is quite sensitive. Accurate estimates of the relative permittivity and the loss tangent can be obtained by accurately... View full abstract»

    A 4-port junction circulator for use in 94-GHz E-plane integrated circuits is investigated. The design incorporates an E-plane X-junction of standard metal waveguides with a single ferrite disk on one of the narrow walls of the junction plus a metal plunger extending into the junction from the opposite side. The plunger is used to tune the n = 0 mode to the circulator center frequency and addition... View full abstract»

    The transmembrane voltage produced by a transient electromagnetic field has been determined using a nonlinear model of the cellular membrane. The influence on the membrane voltage of the various parameters characterizing the incident field, such as wave-shape, time-width, and amplitude, has been analyzed. In particular, the amplitude of the incident field for which the cell's behavior can be assum... View full abstract»

    Waveguide E-plane filters with all-metal inserts are designed by a procedure based on the reflection coefficients of axial inductive strips. The scattering matrix, representing the junction in a bifurcated waveguide, is calculated by a mode-matching method. The reflection coefficient for an inductive strip is then obtained by cascading two scattering matrices separated by a distance equal to the s... View full abstract»

    The performance of the K-band balanced FET up-converter is described. A novel circuit configuration effective in enhancing conversion gain in the FET up-converter is proposed. An analysis using a simplified circuit model shows the effect of LO feedback in the balanced circuit. A conversion gain of 0.9 dB was experimentally obtained at 20 GHz. Maximum output power was 15.9 dBm. View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques focuses on that part of engineering and theory associated with microwave/millimeter-wave components, devices, circuits, and systems involving the generation, modulation, demodulation, control, transmission, and detection of microwave signals. This includes scientific, technical, and industrial, activities. Microwave theory and techniques relates to electromagnetic waves usually in the frequency region between a few MHz and a THz; other spectral regions and wave types are included within the scope of the Society whenever basic microwave theory and techniques can yield useful results. Generally, this occurs in the theory of wave propagation in structures with dimensions comparable to a wavelength, and in the related techniques for analysis and design..
