    UHF passive radio-frequency identification technology is rapidly evolving from simple labeling of things to wireless pervasive sensing. A remarkable number of scientific papers demonstrate that objects in principle can have their physical properties be remotely tracked and monitored all along their life cycle. The key background is a new paradigm of antenna design that merges together the conventi... View full abstract»

  • A digitally beam-steerable antenna array system for positioning-based tracking applications

    In line-of-sight airborne applications, deployment of a steerable antenna array with higher directivity and gain makes sense for reducing ground-station complexity and cost, while still maintaining a reasonable link budget. This paper reports on the design, development, and successful testing of a digitally beam-steerable phased-array antenna integrated as a complete system, comprising the antenna...

  • Multi-objective self-organizing migrating algorithm applied to the design of electromagnetic components

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3126 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Real-life design problems of electromagnetic components are usually highly nonlinear. These problems can be efficiently solved with stochastic global optimization algorithms. This paper deals with an application of a novel Multi-Objective Self-Organizing Migrating Algorithm (MOSOMA) to the design of two electromagnetic components: layered dielectric filters and Yagi-Uda antennas. The optimization ... View full abstract»

  • An efficient iterative MoM-PO hybrid method for analysis of an onboard wire antenna array on a large-scale platform above an infinite ground

    An efficient iterative Method-of-Moments (MoM) - Physical-Optics (PO) hybrid method is proposed for analyzing the performance of an installed wire antenna array, considering both the effects of an electrically large, complex platform, and an infinite planar ground. For large-scale models, the proposed Efficient Iterative MoM-PO (EI-MoM-PO) method is much faster than the conventional MoM-PO method,... View full abstract»

  • A unified solution of Laplace's equation in an arbitrary region

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):79 - 83
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1917 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    An exact solution for the Laplace's equation with Dirichlet boundary conditions in an arbitrary region is presented in this work. The solution is in the form of an integral in terms of the potential on the boundary, and depends on the geometry of the region. The method is valid for bounded as well as unbounded regions. Poisson's integral formula and Schwarz's integral rep resentation for the half-... View full abstract»

  • A wideband circularly polarized stacked slotted microstrip patch antenna

    A wideband, single-feed, circularly polarized, stacked, square, slotted microstrip patch antenna is proposed for radio-frequency-identification-reader applications. The proposed antenna consists of an upper square asymmetric slotted patch, stacked over a lower square asymmetric slotted radiating patch and a microstrip stub, along with a coaxial feed. The wideband circularly polarized radiation of ... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of shorted-plate compact and broadband microstrip antenna

    A broadband configuration of a shorted-plate folded L-slot-cut folded-feed rectangular microstrip antenna was reported, which gave a bandwidth of 2840 MHz (133%). The broader bandwidth was obtained due to the coupling between various modes, which were either a half-wave or a quarter-wave in length. However, a clear description of the modes of the shorted patch that resulted in the broadband respon... View full abstract»

  • Setting subreflector edge taper in a satcom dual-reflector antenna [antenna designer's notebook]

    Direct spillover from the feed past the edge of the subreflector can create sidelobes that exceed the sidelobe template requirements for typical SATCOM ground-terminal dual-reflector antennas. “Some rules of thumb” are given to the antenna designer for choosing the subreflector edge-illumination taper, to ensure that the design of the dual-reflector optics shaping does not create spi...
