    This paper studies on tumor incidence in mice exposed to GSM cell-phone radiation. The first study of lymphomas in female Emu_Pim1 transgenic mice using frequencies and modulations specific to cellular mobile phones was conducted in Australia in which the incidence was shown to be significantly higher (odds ratio, OR = 2.4) in the exposed mice (43%) than in the sham controls (22%) [M.H.

    The aim of this article is to give an overview of how S-parameter techniques can be used and misused to measure the "microwave behavior" of microwave photonic components and links-a field known as lightwave component analysis. Along the way, we clarify what is meant by the term "microwave behavior" when it is applied to what in effect are nonmicrowave components. We find that while it is desirable... View full abstract»

    Multisine signals are used in the laboratory and in the field to provide a periodic, well-characterized waveform that can simulate complex modulated radio frequency (RF) signals. In the field of wireless telecommunications, multisines are often used to provide realistic test signals that have statistics similar to various types of digitally modulated signals. It is concluded that the multisine app... View full abstract»

    Designing a high-linearity, high-efficiency RF power amplifier with wide bandwidth design is a real challenge. This article explores a technique to achieve 30 dBm output power with an adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR) of more than -65 dBc for frequency range of 800-900 MHz. A three-stage gallium arsenide heterojunction bipolar transistor (GaAs HBT) RF power amplifier with Cartesian feedback in c... View full abstract»
