    The recent availability of high-contrast, low-loss ceramic materials provides us with possibilities for significant antenna miniaturization. This paper explores the use of low-temperature co-fired-ceramic (LTCC) substrates in producing a miniaturized patch-antenna design. Of particular interest in the design are parameters such as substrate thickness, input impedance, radiation efficiency, and ban... View full abstract»

  • The differentiated on-surface poynting vector as a measure of radiation loss from wires

    Publication Year: 2006 , Page(s): 21 - 32

    This article explores use of the on-surface Poynting vector to investigate the power flow at the surface of various thin wires, excited as antennas or scatterers. By differentiating the axial Poynting vector at the wire's surface, the rate of change of power flow in the current and charge along a perfectly electrically conducting (PEC) wire can be determined. The idea being explored is to see if a... View full abstract»

    The main motivation for this paper is to discuss the development of a novel compact and light-weight dual-frequency, dual linearly polarized, high-efficiency, stacked-patch microstrip-array antenna for use in standalone aircraft-based remote sensing applications. Results from simulation, fabrication, and testing of a sixteen-element stacked-patch array antenna, optimized for an L-band frequency of... View full abstract»

    A methodology for integrating a wideband circulator with a wideband antenna is considered herein. To accomplish this integration effectively, the conditions for perfect circulation are examined, whereby the port impedances of the circulator are allowed to be complex, treated as part of the design of the circulator, and couched in terms of network-scattering parameters. This approach allows for the... View full abstract»

    The unquestionable advantages of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems are having a strong influence on the development of new wireless systems, both in wireless local-area networks (WLANs), and in those designed to offer broadband fixed wireless access (BFWA) services in wireless metropolitan-area networks (WMANs). The MIMO channel characterization in different environments and for differ... View full abstract»

  • Simplified calculation of ground losses in low- and medium-frequency antenna systems

    Calculations of ground losses are paramount in obtaining the best performance of a monopole antenna in the low- (LF) and medium-frequency (MF) bands. Ground losses are usually computed numerically, due to difficulties in the mathematical formalism. The novel approach here permits obtaining simple analytical expressions for ground-loss calculations that can be useful for determining the behavior of... View full abstract»
