    In this paper, a quite unique mobile laboratory for monitoring radio-frequency interference with a radio-astronomical observatory is described. The unit is fully operational at the new Sardinia Radio Telescope, a 64-m antenna now in the commissioning phase in Italy. The mobile laboratory is mainly used to identify the source of interference with the radio astronomy service using iterative triangul... View full abstract»

    A plethora of papers can be found in the scientific literature talking about time reversal. The term time reversal exists in the publications in a variety of different fields, such as ultrasonics, acoustics, wireless communications, electromagnetics, antennas and propagation, optics, physics, and philosophy. The term time reversal by itself sounds very interesting, and can provide many interpretat... View full abstract»

  • Diffraction at a Wedge with One Face Electric and the Other Face Magnetic: Exact and Asymptotic Solutions of the Wave and Parabolic Equations

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):63 - 73
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2839 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The wedge-diffraction problem is formulated in two ways: with the Helmholtz elliptic equation and the Leontovich parabolic equation. The wedge faces have different electromagnetic properties. One face is electric (with infinite electric conductivity), while the other is magnetic (with infinite magnetic conductivity). Exact and asymptotic solutions of these two equations are derived, analyzed, and ... View full abstract»

    A differentially fed magneto-electric dipole antenna is proposed. It is not only simpler in structure, but also better in performance than previous designs. Measurement results showed that the proposed antenna could achieve an impedance bandwidth of 92% (0.80 GHz to 2.16 GHz) for a differential reflection coefficient less than -10 dB, and a 1 dB gain bandwidth of 77% (0.83 GHz to 1.88 GHz). The ma... View full abstract»

    The design of linear arrays to produce a desired radiation pattern, i.e., the pattern-synthesis problem, continues to be of interest, as demonstrated by the number of articles being published on this topic. Varieties of approaches have been developed to deal with this problem. The approach discussed here begins with a specified set of element currents - such as choosing all to be of unit amplitude...

    This article is a review of wireless body-area network (BAN) channel models, with observations about the selection of the best channel model in terms of both first- and second-order statistics. Particular insight into the dominant factors that affect propagation for body-area networks is given. Important second-order statistical measures are discussed, where coherence times and fade durations are ... View full abstract»

    A review is performed of the current simulation tools able to produce simultaneous dynamic fading, due to a range of mechanisms, experienced by heterogeneous networks of SHF and EHF radio links. The primary focus is fading due to rain. A taxonomy of tools is proposed, based on the methods used to generate fields of meteorological parameters. The capabilities, deficiencies, and futures of these too... View full abstract»
