    Microwave engineers and engineers in general tend to be in their profession be cause they like technical challenges. Historically, one of the biggest challenges has been how to extend radio communications, especially at microwave frequencies, beyond the horizon. One way to achieve this end at microwaves is to bounce radio signals off the Moon. This form of propagation is known as "moonbounce" or "... View full abstract»

    Few electrical engineering students arrive on campus with the basic skills needed to turn a concept into working hardware that solves a problem. Even university seniors typically have had few opportunities to practice design; that is, given a constrained set of tools, skills, and components, create, evaluate, and implement a unique solution to a particular problem or to address a particular need. ...

    In this paper different topologies of CNT-based RF passive gas sensors are presented, particularly focusing on wireless transducers, which can directly indicate gas concentration through the change of easy to-monitor RF parameters. CNTs feature numerous unique properties that could potentially enable the next generation of gas sensors with sensitivities better by 1-2 orders of magnitude with respe... View full abstract»

    This article presented a review of the most common load-pull approaches adopted in the measurement and characterization of large-periphery microwave transistor devices. Although the quarterwave transformer technique is simple and very cost-effective, it has serious limitations in terms of scalability, thereby necessitating a separate quarterwave transformer for each device and frequency.

    Recently, terahertz (THz) technology has attracted a great deal of interest from academia and industry. This is due to a number of interesting features of THz waves, including the tens and hundreds of gigahertz bandwidths available, and the fact that this frequency band poses only a minor health threat. Also, as millimeter-wave communication systems mature, the focus of research is, naturally, mov... View full abstract»

    The rapid growth in the network-communication-system market has placed higher demands on radio-frequency (RF) transceivers. The voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) is one of the most important building blocks of any communications system, and a high-performance VCO is critical to cover new requirements in communication systems such as required frequency bandwidth recommended by ITU-R, high phase n...
