    In this paper, a tutorial discussion is presented on the receiving and scattering properties of the finite dipole array. The primary issue that we consider here is the relationship between the total scattered and received powers for the free-space and the ground-plane-backed dipole arrays. We discuss how the conservation of power relates to the total scattered and received powers for the general a... View full abstract»

  • Substrate-Integrated-Waveguide Beamforming Networks and Multibeam Antenna Arrays for Low-Cost Satellite and Mobile Systems

    The growing complexity of satellite and mobile communication systems means that there are increasing needs for antenna arrays with multiple-beam capability. Conventional beamforming-network (BFN) configurations can be realized by different types of transmission lines, such as a microstrip line or waveguide. However, each of these has its own obvious defects. As part of a new generation of high-fre... View full abstract»

  • Improved Performance of a Microstrip Phased Array Using Broadband and Ultra-Low-Loss Metamaterial Slabs

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):31 - 41

    A novel broadband and ultra-low-loss electric metamaterial EM isolation slab is proposed to improve the performance of a microstrip array. The metamaterial slab is formed by periodically grounded edge-coupled split-ring resonators (PGE-SRRs). Outstanding improvements - including over -50 dB peak isolation, 15% fractional bandwidth (-10 dB isolation) and almost lossless operation - are obtained. Th... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the analysis and synthesis of microstrip grid-array antennas at millimeter-wave frequencies. The basic principle of operation is revisited through careful examination of current distributions, impedance, and radiation characteristics on a typical microstrip grid-array antenna. An extensive analysis of microstrip grid-array antennas of different meshes on a variety of substrate... View full abstract»

    MIMO technology has become one of the most promising techniques for enhancing the quality of services in many applications. For WLANs, the issue of MIMO technology has been officially addressed by the IEEE 802.11 n standard. In this standard, five MIMO operations - including spatial multiplexing, transmitting beamforming, space-time block coding, low-density parity-check encoding, and antenna sele... View full abstract»

    Ka-band multiple-beam spacecraft antennas (MBA) are a key technological challenge in the design of broadband communication-satellite systems. Due to the very narrow beamwidth of multiple-beam spacecraft antennas, beam pointing is a critical issue, since even very small pointing errors can seriously affect the antenna's performance. Consequently, many of these communications antennas require closed... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a chronology of the origin and development of wireless (or radio) communications. It follows the following pattern. It gives credit to some of the scientists who provided the initial observations and understanding of electric and magnetic phenomena. It then mentions the experiments and inventions carried out toward the evolution of scientific and engineering models. Finally, it... View full abstract»
