    The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced on 31 May 2011 that it has classified radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs), including those employed by cellular mobile telephones, as possibly carcinogenic to humans [1]. This implies that there could be some cancer risk associated with the use of cell phones. View full abstract»

    Until the early 1970s, nearly all filter synthesis techniques were based on the extraction of electrical elements (lumped capacitors and inductors, transmission line lengths) from the polynomials that represented the filter's electrical performance in mathematical terms. This was perfectly adequate for the technologies and applications that were available at the time, and many important contributi... View full abstract»

    This article outlined several optimization techniques applied in different steps of the synthesis of filters and multiplexers. The importance of the subject has been appreciated by more and more researchers and engineers in this community. As it is impossible to cover all technologies available, the objective here is to provoke a broader thinking beyond basic filter synthesis. Established computer... View full abstract»

    An overview of the main contributions that introduced the use of nonresonating modes for the realization of pseudoelliptic narrowband waveguide filters is presented. The following are also highlighted: early work using asymmetric irises; oversized H-plane cavity; transverse magnetic cavity; TM dual-mode cavity; and multiple cavity filters. View full abstract»

    Most of the circuit prototypes used in practical applications were proposed many decades ago, when the present computational resources were not available. Simplicity was a key factor in their conception. Although these traditional prototypes model the real structures, they usually neglect second-order effects, the frequency dependence of the filter parts and, in some cases, they do not have an exa...

    Modern microwave communication systems generally employ filtering subsystems composed of narrowband filters suitably interconnected, whose purpose is the separation (or combination) of several RF signals allocated in different segments of the frequency spectrum (channels). Such subsystems are generally referred to as “Multiplexers.” Actually, several classes of multiplexers exist, wh... View full abstract»

    The groove guide is a low-loss waveguide that was proposed by Tischer in 1963 as an alternative to classic waveguides. Its basic structure, can be divided into an inner and two outer region. The inner region exhibits a lower phase velocity. Hence, the electromagnetic field is concentrated in the inner region and propagates along the groove. In the outer regions, the electromagnetic field is eavnes... View full abstract»

    A wireless communication system consists of various passive components, including antennas, directional couplers, phase shifters, and filters. These components have many dimensional parameters that must be determined. For instance, a coupled line section has line width, gap between the coupled lines, and the length of the line as the parameters to be determined. Identifying these parameters throug...
