    In this paper, antennas made out of transparent conducting oxides (TCOs) are explored. The optical transparency of transparent conducting oxides is achieved through thin-film depositions on substrates. However, thin-film depositions create a new set of electrical challenges that require a full understanding of semiconductor physics. This work looks into the governing equations that limit light tra... View full abstract»

    The effect of mutual coupling on the performance of adaptive antennas has been a topic of considerable interest for the last three decades. The general conclusion of the work reported in the open literature is that mutual coupling degrades the performance of adaptive antennas. We have carried out an in-depth study of the effects of mutual coupling on the performance of adaptive antennas. Our studi... View full abstract»

    The feasibility of using the physical structure of a passive aerodynamic attitude-stabilization system on a nano-satellite as a multi-frequency antenna is shown. Four metallic strips that deploy from the rear of the satellite provide drag torques that stabilize pitch and yaw. These metallic strips are simultaneously used as an antenna for radio communication. The antenna uses physical band-stop fi... View full abstract»

    Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have attracted a great deal of research interest during the last few years, with potential applications making them ideal for the development of the envisioned world of ubiquitous and pervasive computing. Energy and computational efficiency constraints are the main key issues when dealing with this type of network. The main research effort has been channeled towards... View full abstract»

    Space-curve types of distributions and electromagnetic sources are introduced in a Schwartz-Sobolev space setting, in a tutorial style. The features of the investigation are the derivation and employment of i) three line vector operators acting on a regular singular function; ii) distributional derivatives of first-order space-curve types of singularities; and iii) the distributional investigation...

  • Some Electromagnetic Equivalence Theorems Unifi ed by a Single Theorem and Generalized to a Nonlinear Case

    Love's theorem, the induction theorem, and the physical equivalence theorem are combined into a single theorem, and then proven in terms of the previously known electromagnetic principles and theorems. From the proof, the new theorem is seen to be applicable even in the inhomogeneous and nonlinear case. We also suggest some procedures for utilization of the new theorem in practice, for engineers h... View full abstract»

    Measurements are fundamental to the advancement of knowledge. In turn, measurements in general need equations that relate measurable physical quantities. The requirement that measured results be widely understandable needs the employment of units, and hence constants. An understanding of the concept of units can thus be of significant help in appreciating the fundamentals of science. With this bac... View full abstract»

    Some of our readers of this column have commented that many of our Chapters have been more active in the recent months. This may be due to the dedicated services of our Chapter officers around the world, and more financial resources made available from the Antennas and Propagation Society. It is hoped that this trend can continue, and more of our members may benefit from the technical and social a... View full abstract»
