    The benefits of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have made it the radiological method of choice for a great number of diagnostic procedures. Aside from some acute potential risks such as those from aneurysm clips or certain metal objects in the patient's body or scanner environment, no adverse health effects have been associated with clinical MRI. To form images, radio frequency (RF) magnetic fiel... View full abstract»

    This article provides an extensive review of dual-band bandpass filter designs and discusses the pros and cons of these design methods. The behavior of an SLSIR proposed by the authors shows that two passbands can be generated without using external dual-band impedance transformers. Furthermore, by using the design curves shown in this article, the k and the Qe, which are used for the synthesis of... View full abstract»

    This article summarizes the status of millimeterwave CMOS PAs and presents various circuit design techniques. The article shows that millimeter wave CMOS PAs are still a bottleneck for millimeter wave system integration and more circuit design effort has to be devoted for millimeter wave PAs implementation along with the development of the nanometer CMOS technologies. The article also shows that f... View full abstract»

    In this article, we present a new theory to explain the phenomenon of negative refraction in bulk metamaterials. Unlike earlier theories, it does not rely on the existence of a single mode of propagation in materials with negative constitutive parameters. It is based on the interaction and phase reversal effects caused by the existence of two simultaneous electromagnetic (EM) modes in uniform inho... View full abstract»

    Software design programs often assist RF/ microwave engineers in creating high-frequency printed circuit boards (PCBs). A multitude of commercial software tools are available, from electromagnetic (EM) simulation programs to circuit layout and complete system simulators. Both engineers and software tools try to forecast the effects of various circuit- and material-based parameters, but some factor... View full abstract»

    Modern communication systems comprise a variety of formats, protocols, and frequency ranges. Software defined radio (SDR) technology addresses these formats with the idea that a single platform can be reprogrammed to process a variety of waveforms. The SDR Forum and the IEEE have defined SDR as a radio in which some or all of the physical layer functions are defined in software [1]. View full abstract»
