    The objective of this paper is to illustrate that electromagnetic macro modeling can properly predict the path-loss exponent in mobile cellular wireless communication. This represents the variation of the path loss with distance from the base-station antenna. Specifically, we illustrate that the path-loss exponent in cellular wireless communication is three, preceded by a slow-fading region, and f... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we describe a compact, wideband (70-3000 MHz), and high-gain antenna technology that can replace multiple types of antennas currently in use to cover the wide frequency band. The design eliminates the frequency-band breaks associated with the use of multiple arrays. The wideband direction-finding array (with a height of 5.5 in and a diameter of 15.5 in) is the result of end-to-end i... View full abstract»

  • A Study of RF Dosimetry from Exposure to an AMI Smart Meter

    As part of the development of the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), i.e., the “smart grid,” power utilities are increasingly deploying residential meters that wirelessly communicate (either with devices in the home, with other meters, or with the utility). These meters may employ multiple antennas and radiate at different frequencies, ranging from 850 MHz to 2.4 GHz. Unlike rad... View full abstract»

  • Electromagnetic Analysis of Metamaterials and Plasmonic Nanostructures with the Method of Moments

    The well-known Method of Moments (MoM) formulation is used for the analysis of several three-dimensional problems comprising left-handed materials, plasmonic nanoparticles, and dielectric objects. The problems are formulated in terms of surface integral equations (SIEs), requiring only the discretization of the material boundary surfaces and interfaces to expand the unknown electric and magnetic e...

  • Temporal Leakage in Analysis of Electromagnetic Systems

    Temporal leakage occurs when the time-domain response of a linear electromagnetic system is computed from frequency-domain data using the inverse discrete Fourier transform. Although the temporal leakage occurs in most practical cases, this phenomenon is not recognized in the literature covering electromagnetics, antennas, and microwaves. The purpose of the paper is to demonstrate and explain the ... View full abstract»

  • Statistical Modeling of the Radio-Electric Properties of Wireless Terminals in their Environment

    This paper deals with the modeling of the statistical distribution of the effective gain of terminals. This incorporates both the characteristics of the antenna's radiation pattern in the situation of use, and the characteristics of the local propagation environment. A frequency-wise and frequency-correlated log-normally-distributed effective-gain model is proposed as a standard model of wide - al... View full abstract»
