    Wireless networks consisting of compact antennas find applications in diverse areas such as communication systems, direction of arrival estimation, sensor networks, and imaging. The effectiveness of many of these systems depend on maximizing the reception of RF power and extracting maximum information from the incident electromagnetic (EM) wave. Traditionally, this has been achieved through multip... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we analyze the performance of a newly introduced recursive un-termination method for nondestructive in situ S-parameter measurements of multiport packages. The fundamental limitations of the method are statistically analyzed and compared to conventional two-port probing techniques. The methodology is based on programmable terminations fully integrated in a standard silicon process t... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a compact and high-quality on-chip vertical solenoid inductor design. By taking advantage of an ever increasing number of metal layers in the modern CMOS process, the proposed structure can continuously reduce the inductor area and increase the quality factor (QF) and self-resonant frequency (SRF). Experimental results show that, compared to the 4.1-nH planar spiral inductor us... View full abstract»

    In this paper, V-band high-order frequency divider monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) showing wide bandwidth and low-power dissipation are presented. For high-order (divide-by-four) frequency division, a super-harmonic signal is injected into a self-oscillating subharmonic mixer loop consisting of cascode field-effect transistors (FETs). Cascode FET-based harmonic injection locking a... View full abstract»

  • Efficient excitation of microstrip lines by a virtual transmission line in FDTD

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):1899 - 1903
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A novel technique to excite microstrip lines with the finite-difference time-domain method (FDTD) is introduced. The model uses a one-dimensional virtual transmission line in the calculation of the incident and reflected voltages. The proposed model allows to extract the scattering parameters with a single three-dimensional FDTD run with a shorter simulation time than many of the well-known excita... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the coupled strip-slot lines are modeled using hybrid mode analysis. Standard spectral-domain analysis is employed to solve the eigenvalue problem in multilayered media and a novel formulation is proposed to obtain strip and slot modal impedances. Comparisons with available published data are presented. The model is used to obtain scattering parameters of a bandpass filter with a no... View full abstract»

    An efficient accuracy-improvement scheme is proposed to analyze electromagnetic problems with conductive medium. This scheme is based on interpreting the alternating-direction implicit finite-difference time-domain (ADI-FDTD) method as a special iterative solver for the Crank-Nicholson scheme. By applying an additional number of iterations to locations with relatively large field variation, the ov... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a transmission-line modeling (TLM) algorithm, which is based upon unstructured tetrahedral meshes. In comparison with the conventional, usually Cartesian, scheme, the use of such meshes provides a significant enhancement in the flexibility and accuracy of the TLM simulations, permitting both smooth boundary approximations and the use of diversely sized elements in multiscale pr...

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..
