    Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) was the subject of many scientific studies about a decade ago [1], and several research investigations have appeared since then. The syndromes of EHS consist of nervous-system symptoms, such as headache and fatigue; skin symptoms, like facial irritations and rashes; as well as other nonspecific health-related symptoms. Also, there have been reports of problem... View full abstract»

    Microwave equivalent-circuit theory is like a grand old building: elegant, carefully crafted, passed from generation to generation, and rooted in history. Traveling waves, the measureable electromagnetic field solutions of Maxwell's equations in a transmission line, form the foundation of the theory. You must descend into the basement to see them; not many people do so. It is in this "basement" th... View full abstract»

    Today, radio-frequency (RF) wafer probes play an important role in almost every step of the RF products lifecycle: from technology development, model parameter extraction, design verification, and debug to small-scale and final production test. By using RF probes, it became possible to measure true characteristics of the RF components at the wafer level. This halved research and development times ... View full abstract»

    In recent communication networks, 100 Gb/s passive optical Ethernet networks have been established and started becoming widely used. In consumer broadcasting, the use of high-definition television in studio and live-relay broadcasts has been planned by the Japanese government. These high-speed wireless technologies require the millimeter-wave frequency band from 30 to 300 GHz to provide sufficient... View full abstract»

    This article has described an on-going research activity to establish systems offering reliable S-parameter measurements in the range 110-1,100 GHz. Some of these systems have already been implemented-i.e., systems offering high-precision, traceable measurements at frequencies from 110 GHz to 330 GHz. In addition, primary attenuation standards, based on the cross-connected waveguide principle, are... View full abstract»

    This article describes how state-of-the-art electromagnetic simulation tools can be used to simulate and optimize the complex geometries and system behavior of reconfigurable antennas. While a short overview of the main principles of reconfigurability is given, this is not the main focus of this article, and far more extensive reviews of reconfigurable antennas can be found elsewhere.

    The Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) has been widely used for broadband photonic analog links and high-speed digital optical fiber communication systems because it possesses large modulation bandwidth, low driving voltage, and low chirp. The MZM is a very important optical modulator for photonic applications. In an MZM, the input light is split into two paths, each of which is modulated by an electric... View full abstract»

    RF power amplifiers (PAs) exhibit nonlinear properties as their output power increases. These properties can degrade power efficiency, spectral quality, and modulation accuracy. In addition to nonlinear properties, the amplifier gain varies from device to device due to imperfections in the manufacturing process. During characterization, validation, and production testing, PAs are set to operate at... View full abstract»
