    The cellular base-station market is entering a time of considerable change. Despite the worldwide macroeconomic outlook, conditions are favorable for continuing growth, particularly in emerging markets, with the market for base-station radio components set to top US$5.4 billion worldwide by 2015. Mobile service providers and equipment vendors are moving toward smaller cells and improving spectral ... View full abstract»

    Bell Labs scientists Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson received the 1978 Nobel Prize in physics for their “accidental” discovery in 1965 that “the electromagnetic noise picked up by their horn antenna was not caused by a white dielectric substance (pigeon droppings) within the antenna, but represented the cosmic microwave background (CMB). The CMB was found to be diffuse, coming ... View full abstract»

    Electromagnetic metamaterials are artificially structured media with unusual electromagnetic properties that can be engineered from the radio-frequency (RF) and microwave range all the way up to optical frequencies. In its present form, the field of metamaterials is just over ten years old but has already attracted intense interest from many research groups around the globe. Suddenly, classical el...

    This article summarized and reviewed the realization and applications of the waveguide-based metamaterial structures. In particular, an overview of the existing metamaterial elements was presented. We discussed the possible solutions to enable wave propagation below the waveguide cutoff frequency by loading these elements. Then a detailed analysis on those waveguide unit-cells loaded with differen... View full abstract»

    Cheap and ubiquitous sensor systems will shape the coming decades. There is an emerging class of small high-performance electronic devices such as mobile phones, electronic toys, home appliances, monitoring and control systems in industrial facilities, and medical diagnosis systems, which are or will be equipped with pill box sized microprocessors or computers as well as sensors. These “sma... View full abstract»

    This article focuses on the design methodologies and performance optimization strategies of dual-band DPA. The state of art in dual-band DPA has been demonstrated with further considerations for optimizing overall performance. Two main optimization strategies are applied: using dual-band phase offset as an all-pass filter and unequal-power division at the input with distinct power division ratio a... View full abstract»
