    The previous column presented the basic ideas of modern portfolio theory (MPT). This column covers additional aspects of the theory and presents a result known as the capital asset pricing model (CAPM). The underlying theory is not always easy to grasp on a first encounter but is presented here because it plays a central role in investment theory and practice View full abstract»

    One of the current flavors of the month seems to be meta or left-handed materials. The author discussed his skepticism regarding this topic. His skepticism was aggravated not so much by the recent flurry of peer-reviewed papers but an article in a popular science weekly that proclaimed that the "new and exciting developments" in meta-materials could lead to the actual implementation of Harry Potte...

    Good measurements are a major step towards good modeling. However, besides these measurements, modeling a system also requires a good insight in the system behavior. Do harmonics rise above the noise floor? Must they be taken into account during modeling? Is the system essentially dynamic or static? An answer to the above questions lies in the preprocessing of the measured data as obtained by the ... View full abstract»

    This article reviews the state of the art in broadband antennas for emerging UWB applications and addresses the important issues of the broadband antenna design for UWB applications. First, a variety of planar monopoles with finite ground planes are reviewed. Next, the roll antennas with enhanced radiation performance are outlined. After that, the planar antennas printed on PCBs are described. A d... View full abstract»

    The combination of the traveling wave OMT device and the ultra-low-noise MMIC amplifiers has allowed us to develop a broadband 6-8 GHz receiver with a noise temperature of around 10 K. The combination of receiver noise and the additional noise contributions by the telescope optics gives an overall receiver temperature of around 28 K and 34 K in the two polarizations. The large collecting area of t... View full abstract»

    This article was written to help practicing RF engineers solve everyday tasks related to differential circuit characterization with precise and reliable methods, which employ ordinary single-ended two-port vector network analyzers. The article describes useful, practical methods for balanced circuit characterization, particularly differential voltage, common-mode rejection (CMR), insertion loss, a... View full abstract»
