    The applications of a hybrid real-binary particle swarm optimization (HPSO) algorithm in engineering electromagnetics are described. In HPSO, each candidate design is designated by a hybridized vector consisting of both real and binary variables. These variables are evolved in the optimization by following the velocity/position updating formulas of real-number PSO (RPSO) and binary PSO (BPSO), res... View full abstract»

    An investigation of the performance of printed dipole antenna with finite periodically corrugated-reflectors for low-profile ultrawideband (UWB) applications is presented. According to the relative orientations of the linear-polarized source antenna and the corrugated-reflectors, the problem could be divided into H and E cases. Their fundamental differences and design guidelines are discussed in d... View full abstract»

    A recently introduced systematic approach to efficiently obtain the time-domain electromagnetic field of an arbitrary antenna radiating into the free space is applied to numerically analyze the frequency-domain features of an ultrawideband antenna. In a first stage, the finite-difference time-domain method is employed to obtain the time-domain spherical-multipole amplitudes for the antenna which i... View full abstract»

    We study the effect of surrounding electrically small, top-loaded, electric-dipole antennas with a thin shell of high-permeability magnetic material. The magnetic polarization currents induced in the thin shell of magnetic material reduce the internal stored energy, resulting in a lower as compared to conventional designs. The simulated 's of thin-magnetic-shell cylindrical and spherical antennas ... View full abstract»

    In the design of large arrays, aperture field distribution control taking the mutual coupling into account is computationally heavy; here iterative design is indispensable especially for the elements in the periphery of the array aperture. This paper presents an iteration-free design for a waveguide slot array by using cavities which stabilize the external mutual coupling of the slots. All cavitie... View full abstract»
