  • Conductive Inkjet-Printed Antennas on Flexible Low-Cost Paper-Based Substrates for RFID and WSN Applications

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):13 - 23

    In this paper, a review of the authors' work on inkjet-printed flexible antennas, fabricated on paper substrates, is given. This is presented as a system-level solution for ultra-low-cost mass production of UHF radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags and wireless sensor nodes (WSN), in an approach that could be easily extended to other microwave and wireless applications. First, we discuss the ... View full abstract»

  • The Practical Behavior of Various Edge-Diffraction Formulas

    The scalar knife-edge diffraction (KED) solution is a workhorse for RF and optics engineers who regularly encounter practical diffraction phenomena. However, the approximate, polarization-independent KED result is formulated in a way that does not provide direct physical insight. In this article, we demonstrate how the KED formula contains similar underlying physics to other more-rigorous half-scr... View full abstract»

  • A Revisiting of Scientific and Philosophical Perspectives on Maxwell's Displacement Current

    The displacement-current concept introduced by James Clerk Maxwell is generally acknowledged as one of the most innovative concepts ever introduced in the development of physical science. It was through this that he was led to the discovery of his electromagnetic theory of light. While this concept and its development have received much admiration in the literature from the viewpoints of both scie... View full abstract»

  • A Reevaluation of the Radiation Q Bounds for Loop Antennas

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):47 - 52
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (969 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A new realistic lower bound for the radiation Q of loop antennas is presented. It includes the contribution of energy within a circumscribed sphere, and is at least three times the often-referenced Q based only on external energy. The new bound is compared with actual Q values over a range of electrical diameters and aspect ratios, using design equations and electromagnetic simulations. View full abstract»

  • Scattered EM Field Responses of Canonical Scatterers Illuminated by an Impulse-Radiating Antenna (IRA)

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3477 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper investigates the possibility of using the impulse-radiating antenna (IRA) as both a transmitter and receiver of electromagnetic energy for the purpose of target identification. Of specific interest is estimating the induced open-circuit voltage at the IRA's source terminals, when it is illuminated by the scattered EM field from simple conducting bodies excited by an incident field from ...

  • Analysis and Parameterization of Methodologies for the Conversion of Rain-Rate Cumulative Distributions from Various Integration Times to One Minute

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):70 - 84
    Cited by:  Papers (11)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2410 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The conversion of rain-rate cumulative distributions from any integration time, T, to one minute is a viable option whenever local one-minute data (time series or cumulative distribution functions) are not available for microwave system design. This paper reviews some of the most common rain-rate cumulative-distribution conversion methods. For selected models, it provides a complementary set of co... View full abstract»

    The results of four years of work within the Antenna Software Initiative (ASI) of the European Network of Excellence on Antennas (ACE) are reported. The primary goal of the ASI was to build a European framework that allows research groups, active in the development of antenna analysis and design software, to intensify and optimize cooperative research. The ASI community worked on three concrete qu... View full abstract»

    The new IEEE AP-S Web site (http://www.ieeeaps.org) has been online since the end of May. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the successful implementation of the site, particularly the members of the AP-S AdCom whose valuable suggestions helped establish the initial content. I would also like to thank Andy Mathis for all of his past support, maintaining and updating the previous ver... View full abstract»

    The annual IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation has come and gone. We all had a wonderful time in Charleston (a big thank you from all of the Chapter Chairs to Anthony Martin and his team), and we look forward to the conference in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in July 2010. We all know that it will be an outstanding meeting. View full abstract»

    The IEEE AP-S Distinguished Lecturer Program provides AP-S Chapters in the US and abroad with talks by experts on topics of interest and importance to the antennas and propagation community. The Chapters incur little or no cost in making use of this program. Each Chapter can request a maximum of two visits per year by our Distinguished Lecturers. Requests must be approved prior to making an offici... View full abstract»
