A New Wide-Stopband Low-Pass Filter with Generalized Coupled-Line Circuit and Analytical Theory
Yongle Wu Yuan'an Liu Shulan Li Cuiping Yu
A generalized coupled-line circuit is introduced to construct a wide-stopband low-pass filter in this paper. This circuit configuration includes two-section coupled lines and a connected transmission-line stub. Due to the symmetry of this proposed structure, closed-form equations for scattering parameters are investigated. The transmission zeros and poles locations for different circuit parameters are discussed, and the corresponding design curves are given. For theoretical verifications, four typical numerical examples are designed, calculated and illustrated. Furthermore, two single-stage low-pass filters (LPF 1 and LPF 2) with the 1-dB cutoff frequencies of 0.72 GHz and 1.45 GHz are fabricated and measured. The implemented LPF2 has 19-dB stopband rejection in the range of 2.05 to 6.36 GHz. Finally, two LPF cells (LPF 1 and LPF 2) and an additional connected transmission line are used to construct a new two-stage low-pass filter (LPF 3) with extended stopband. The measured 16-dB stopband of LPF 3 is up to 7.5 GHz while the 1-dB passband range is from DC to 0.67 GHz. The advantages of this proposed low-pass filter are avoiding any lumped elements and compact layout structure.

Multi-Channel Spcmb-Tops SAR for High-Resolution Wide-Swath Imaging
Wei Xu Pingping Huang Yun-Kai Deng
To improve the impaired azimuth resolution of the novel Terrain Observation by Progressive Scans (TOPS) mode, a new multi-channel single phase center multiple beam (SPCMB) TOPS mode is proposed in this paper for high-resolution wide-swath (HRWS) imaging. However, the progressive azimuth beam scanning leads to the Doppler spectrum aliasing and both beam center time and Doppler centroid varying with the target's azimuth location. Challenges may arise for processing the SPCMB-TOPS SAR data from these problems. In this paper, an efficient full aperture imaging approach is proposed to process the raw data. The sketch of the proposed imaging approach is described in detail. Simulation results of point targets validate the proposed imaging approach.

Design of Different Selectivity Dual-Mode Filters with E-Shaped Resonator
Chao Lei Wei Bao-Fu Jia Zhao-Jun Zhu Ming-Chun Tang
A novel bandpass filter design method of achieving different selectivity based on E-shaped dual-mode resonator is presented. The characteristic of the E-shaped dual-mode resonator is investigated. The technique of utilizing capacitive and inductive input-output cross-coupling to generate two adjustable transmission zeros at stopband is explored intensively. Advantages of this type of filter are not only its dual-mode resonator and miniaturization, but also its controllable transmission zeros. The coupling scheme is presented to model the operations of these filters. Four dual-mode microstrip BPFs have been designed, fabricated, and measured. Both the simulated and measured results are presented. The exemplary filters verify the feasibility of the new design method.

Application of the Newton Method to Improve the Accuracy of Toa Estimation with the Beamforming Algorithm and the MUSIC Algorithm
Joon-Ho Lee Yeong-Seok Jeong Sung-Woo Cho Woon-Young Yeo Kristofer S. J. Pister
In this paper, a numerical method for improving the performance of the beamforming algorithm and the MUSIC algorithm for TOA (Time-of-Arrival) estimation is presented. It has been shown that the conventional beamforming algorithm and the MUSIC algorithm can be used for time delay estimation. Using the beamforming algorithm and the MUSIC algorithm for TOA estimation, the initial estimate for the TOA is obtained. To improve the accuracy of the TOA estimation, we apply the Newton iteration to the initial estimate. The initial estimates obtained from the beamforming algorithm and the MUSIC algorithm are updated to obtain the final estimates which are more accurate than the initial estimates in terms of the RMSE (Root Mean Square Error). To find the TOA which maximizes the beamforming spectrum or the MUSIC spectrum, we find the TOA at which the derivative of the beamforming spectrum with respect to the delay is zero. To find numerically the TOA at which the derivative of the beamforming spectrum or the MUSIC spectrum is zero, the Newton iteration is adopted. In numerical results, the validity of the proposed scheme is illustrated using various examples.

CUDA Implementation in the EM Scattering of a Three-Layer Canopy
Wang-Qiang Jiang Min Zhang Hui Chen Yong-Ge Lu
Calculating the EM scattering fields from a three-layer canopy which comprises of many leaves, trunks and the ground needs intensive computational burden, when the area becomes large and obviously lames the application of the traditional serial algorithm. With the development of graphics hardware, the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) can be used to calculate the electromagnetic (EM) scattering problems parallelly. In this paper, the Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) is combined with the four-path method and the reciprocity theorem to predict the EM scattering properties from scatterers which are sampled by using Monte-Carlo method in a three-layer canopy model. We get a highest speedup of 294 times in comparison with the original serial algorithm on a Core (TM) i5 CPU with a GTS460 GPU as a coprocessor.

Kim Huat Lee Iftikhar Ahmed Rick Siow Mong Goh Eng Huat Khoo Er Ping Li Terence Gih Guang Hung
We present a three-dimensional finite difference time domain (FDTD) method on graphics processing unit (GPU) for plasmonics applications. For the simulation of plasmonics devices, the Lorentz-Drude (LD) dispersive model is incorporated into Maxwell equations, while the auxiliary differential equation (ADE) technique is applied to the LD model. Our numerical experiments based on typical domain sizes as well as plasmonics environment demonstrate that our implementation of the FDTD method on GPU offers significant speed up as compared to the traditional CPU implementations.

Efficient Analysis of Scattering from Multiple 3-D Cavities by Means of a FE-BI-DDM Method
Zhiwei Cui Yiping Han Chang You Li Wenjuan Zhao
A finite element-boundary integral-domain decomposition method is presented for analyzing electromagnetic scattering problems involving multiple three-dimensional cavities. Specifically, the edge-based finite element method is applied inside each cavity to derive a linear system of equations associated with unknown fields. The boundary integral equation is then applied on the apertures of all the cavities to truncate the computational domain and to connect the matrix subsystem generated from each cavity. With the help of an iterative domain decomposition method, the coupling system of equations is reduced to a small one which only includes the unknowns on the apertures. To further reduce computational burdens, the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is adopted to solve the reduced system. The numerical results for the near and far fields of several selected multi-cavity problems are presented to demonstrate the validity and capability of the proposed method.

Dispersion and Losses in Surface Waveguides Containing Double Negative OR Chiral Metamaterials
João R. Canto Carlos Paiva Afonso Barbosa
In this article the influence of both dispersion and losses on waveguides with metamaterials is investigated. The analysis is focused on surface waveguides (planar interfaces and grounded slabs) containing either double-negative (DNG) or chiral metamaterials. The main goal is to show how the combined effect of material dispersion and losses with the structural dispersion affect the solutions of the modal equations. It is shown that this interplay is essential to obtain a correct modal analysis of these waveguides. Namely, the overall behavior can qualitatively change - so that it is not possible to state that the corresponding lossy case - even when a very small amount of losses is introduced - can be interpreted as a small perturbation of the lossless case.

Design and Simulation of L-Shaped Chiral Negative Refractive Index Structure
Jie Li Fang-Qing Yang Jian-Feng Dong
A new L-shaped chiral structure working in microwave and optical frequency bands has been designed and simulated. The circular dichroism, ellipticity angle, polarization azimuth rotation angle, and effective parameters of this structure, including relative permittivity, relative permeability, chiral parameter and refractive index, are retrieved from simulated transmission and reflection spectra. The results show that the exceptionally strong optical activity is found for the L-shaped chiral structure. Because of the large chiral parameter of this structure, negative refractive index of one circularly polarized wave can be obtained without simultaneously negative permittivity and negative permeability.

A Novel Strategy for Topside Ionosphere Sounder Based on Spaceborne MIMO Radar with Fdcd
Jie Chen Zhuo Li Chun-Sheng Li
A novel strategy for topside ionosphere sounder based on spaceborne Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) radar is proposed, which takes advantage of frequency division and code division (FDCD) as a substitution for swept-frequency regime employed by the current ionosphere explorers, e.g., TOPside Automated Sounder (TOPAS). The azimuth resolution can be improved by 153 times compared with TOPAS by means of frequency division, producing two-dimensional electron density images. The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) can be enhanced and complete orthogonality among channels at different frequencies can be achieved by code division, which uses Complete Complementary Sequence (CC-S) as phase coding waveform. The simulation results show that root mean square (RMS) of normalized electron density measurements error of novel ionosphere sounder is as low as 1.7%.

RF Directional Modulation Technique Using a Switched Antenna Array for Physical Layer Secure Communication Applications
Tao Hong Maozhong Song Yu Liu
In this paper, we present a RF directional modulation technique using a switched antenna array for physical layer secure communication. The main idea is that a switching scheme of the switched antenna array is designed according to a spreading sequence for the purpose of spreading spectrum of the transmit signal. The transmit signal is associated with the spreading sequence and the direction of the desired receiver because of information data modulated both in the baseband and the antenna level. In this way, the desired receiver with a single antenna can demodulate the receive signal as traditional spread-spectrum signal, while eavesdroppers can not extract any useful information from the receive signal even if eavesdroppers know the spreading sequence of the RF directional modulation signal. Simulation results show that the proposed technique offers a more secure transmission method for wireless communication comparison with traditional spread-spectrum signal.

An Artificial Nerve Network Realization in the Measurement of Material Permittivity
Qian Chen Ka-Ma Huang Xiaoqing Yang Ming Luo Huacheng Zhu
E®ective complex permittivity measurements of materials are important in microwave engineering and microwave chemistry. Artificial neural network (ANN) computational module has been used in microwave technology and becomes a useful tool recently. A neural network can be trained to learn the behavior of an effective permittivity of material under microwave irradiation in a test system, and it can provide a fast and accurate result for the permittivity measurement of material. Thus, an on-line measurement has been realized. This paper presents a simple and convenient reconstruction algorithm for determining the dielectric properties of materials. First, a measurement system is designed, and the reflection coefficient is calculated by employing full-wave simulations. Second, an artificial nerve network has been applied, and adequate simulated materials are utilized to train the networks. Last, the trained network is employed to reconstruct the effective permittivity of several organic solvents using the measured scattering parameters, and the reconstructed results for several organic solvents agree well with reference data and the relative errors between them are less than 5%.

Balanced Single- and Dual-Band BPFs Using Ring Resonators
Ching-Her Lee Chung-I Hsu Hsun-Hsiang Chen Yu-Sen Lin
This paper presents new balanced single- and dual-band bandpass filters (BPFs), both of which are constructed using two ring resonators. For each BPF, opencircuited stubs are added to one of the two resonators so that the transmitted common-mode (CM) signals can be attenuated, and source-load coupling is established so that two transmission zeros are generated near the edges of each desired differential-mode (DM) passband to sharpen the passband selectivity. The measurement agrees well with the simulation. For the single-band BPF, the measured minimum DM insertion loss is 1.4 dB in the DM passband, in which the CM suppression is larger than 41.6 dB. For the dual-band BPF, the minimum DM insertion losses are 1 and 1.35 dB in the first and second passbands, respectively, in which the CM rejections are larger than 29 and 22 dB.

Angel Ramos Antonio Lazaro David Girbau Ramon Villarino
Chipless ultra-wideband (UWB) has been proposed as a low-cost alternative for radiofrequency identification (RFID). In this paper, a comprehensible theoretical introduction to time-domain operation of a UWB RFID tag is described, and a circuit model is proposed. For commercial applications low-cost RFID readers are demanded. To this end, this paper addresses the measurement of time-coded UWB chipless tags for RFID in time domain. Two different setups to detect time-coded tags are presented, one based on a commercial UWB impulse radar (IR) and the other based on a vector network analyzer (VNA). The experimental results show the feasibility of using an IRUWB radar as a UWB RFID reader, achieving very good read ranges.

Optimum Design for Improving Modulating-Effect of Coaxial Magnetic Gear Using Response Surface Methodology and Genetic Algorithm
Linni Jian Guoqing Xu Jianjian Song Honghong Xue Dongfang Zhao Jianing Liang
Coaxial magnetic gear (CMG) is a non-contact device for torque transmission and speed variation which exhibits promising potential in several industrial applications, such as electric vehicles, wind power generation and vessel propulsion. CMG works lying on the modulating-effect aroused by the ferromagnetic segments. This paper investigates the optimum design for improving the modulating-effect. Firstly, the operating principle and the modulating-effect is analyzed by using 1-D field model, which demonstrates that the modulatingeffect is essential for the torque transmission capacity of CMGs, and the shape of the ferromagnetic segments have impact on the modulatingeffect. Secondly, the fitted model of the relationship between the maximum pull-out torque and the shape factors including radial height, outer-edge width-angle and inner-edge width-angle is built up by using surface response methodology. Moreover, FEM is engaged to evaluate its accuracy. Thirdly, the optimum shape of the ferromagnetic segment is obtained by using genetical algorithm.

Compression and Radiation of High-Power Short RF Pulses. II. a Novel Antenna Array Design with Combined Compressor/Radiator Elements
Kostyantyn Sirenko Vadim Pazynin Yuriy K. Sirenko Hakan Bagci
The paper discusses the radiation of compressed high power short RF pulses using two different types of antennas: (i) A simple monopole antenna and (ii) a novel array design, where each of the elements is constructed by combining a compressor and a radiator. The studies on the monopole antenna demonstrate the possibility of a high power short RF pulse's efficient radiation even using simple antennas. The studies on the novel array design demonstrate that a reduced size array with lower pulse distortion and power decay can be constructed by assembling the array from elements each of which integrates a compressor and a radiator. This design idea can be used with any type of antenna array; in this work it is applied to a phased array.

3D Experimental Detection and Discrimination of Malignant and Benign Breast Tumor Using Nn-Based UWB Imaging System
Saleh Ali AlShehri Sabira Khatun Adznan B. Jantan Raja Syamsul Azmir Raja Abdullah Rozi Mahmud Zaiki Awang
This paper presents both simulation and experimental study to detect and locate breast tumors along with their classification as malignant and/or benign in three dimensional (3D) breast model. The contrast between the dielectric properties of these two tumor types is the main key. These dielectric properties are mainly controlled by the water and blood content of tumors. For simulation, electromagnetic simulator software is used. The experiment is conducted using commercial Ultrawide-Band (UWB) transceivers, Neural Network (NN) based Pattern Recognition (PR) software for imaging and homogenous breast phantom. The 3D homogeneous breast phantom and tumors are fabricated using pure petroleum jelly and a mixture of wheat flour and water respectively. The simulation and experimental setups are performed by transmitting the UWB signals from one side of the breast model and receiving from opposite side diagonally. Using discrete cosine transform (DCT) of received signals, we have trained and tested the developed experimental Neural Network model. In 3D breast model, the achieved detection accuracy of tumor existence is around 100%, while the locating accuracy in terms of (x,y,z) position of a tumor within the breast reached approximately 89.2% and 86.6% in simulation and experimental works respectively. For classification, the permittivity and conductivity detection accuracy are 98.0% and 99.1% in simulation, and 98.6% and 99.5% in experimental works respectively. Tumor detection and type specification 3D may lead to successful clinical implementation followed by saving of precious human lives in the near future.

Hybrid TDIE-TDPO Method for Studying on Transient Responses of Some Wire and Surface Structures Illuminated by an Electromagnetic Pulse
Wei Luo Wen-Yan Yin Ming-Da Zhu Jian-Yao Zhao
An efficient hybrid method, based on time-domain integral equation (TDIE) and time-domain physical optics (TDPO), is proposed for studying on transient electromagnetic responses of some wire and surface structures illuminated by an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), respectively. Two groups of triangular-type basis functions are used to expand the currents on both of them. The derived hybrid TDIE-TDPO equations are solved by marching-on-in-time (MOT) scheme. In comparison with the full TDIE-based MOT method, computational complexity of our developed method is reduced significantly, and at the same time, with high accuracy maintained. Numerical results of EMP responses of some typical wire and surface structures are presented to demonstrate its versatility, accuracy and efficiency, with proximity effects between them captured and discussed.

Characterization of Antenna Interaction with Scatterers by Means of Equivalent Currents
Cebrian Garcia-Gonzalez Yuri Alvarez-Lopez Aránzazu Domínguez Casas Fernando Las Heras Andres
Antenna characterization in presence of obstacles requires removing multipath effects in order to retrieve the nondistorted antenna radiation pattern. In this contribution a new approach based on the Sources Reconstruction Method is proposed. The idea is to characterize the Antenna-Under-Test (AUT) and the region where the scatterers are located through a set of equivalent currents. Finally, the reconstructed equivalent currents on the contour enclosing the AUT can be used to recover the AUT radiation pattern, removing most of the distortion effect due to the presence of the scatterers.
