Substrate Integration of Dual Inductive Post Waveguide Filter
Asghar Adabi Majid Tayarani
Integration of planar circuits to non-planar ones has been recently considered as a credible technique for low-cost mass production of microwave and millimeter-wave circuits andsystems. This paper regards these concepts that provide for a complete integration of planar circuits andw aveguide filters synthesizedon a single substrate by means of metalizedp ost (via-hole) arrays. A method of designing a waveguide filter derived from a synthesis technique using dual array of inductive posts is presented. An experimental five-pole Chebyshev filter which has 2.5 dB insertion loss and return loss better than 10 dB is demonstrated. Such a technique of integration of planar andnon-planar circuits on the same substrate shows a significant reduction in size, weight and cost.

Broadband Interference Excision in Spread Spectrum Communication Systems Based on Short-Time Fourier Transformation
Sultan Aldirmaz Lutfiye Durak
An interference excision algorithm in direct-sequence spread spectrum (DS-SS) communication systems is introduced. The proposed excision algorithm is developed for linear frequency modulated (LFM) signals that have broadband frequency characteristics. It is based on the time-frequency analysis of received signals employing short-time Fourier transformation (STFT). To analyze the interference, STFT of the received signal block is evaluated and thresholded. The interference detection is followed by an inverse-STFT computation to estimate the high-power jamming signal. The estimated jammer is then mitigated before demodulation. Simulations present adequate interference estimation results with mean estimation errors less than 0.01%. Various scenarios with different jammer-to-signal ratios (JSRs) and signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) vs. bit error rates (BERs) are presented for single and multi-component LFM signals. Interference excision algorithms improve the system performance more than an order of magnitude.

Class of Electromagnetic BI-Quadratic (Bq) Media
Ismo Veikko Lindell
Electromagnetic fields and media can be compactly represented by applying the four-dimensional differential-form formalism. In particular, classes of linear (bi-anisotropic) media can be defined in terms of the medium dyadic mapping between the electromagnetic two-forms. As a continuation to the process started by medium dyadics satisfying linear and quadratic algebraic equations, the class of biquadratic (BQ) media is defined by requiring that the medium dyadics satisfy the bi-quadratic algebraic equation. It is shown that the corresponding four three-dimensional medium dyadics are required to satisfy only two dyadic conditions. After studying general properties of BQ media, a special case is analyzed in detail as an example.

A Cwa-Based Detection Procedure of a Perfectly-Conducting Cylinder Buried in a Dielectric Half-Space
Fabrizio Frezza Pasquale Martinelli Lara Pajewski Giuseppe Schettini
The electromagnetic scattering problem of a short-pulse plane wave by a perfectly-conducting circular cylinder, buried in a dielectric half-space, is solved by means of a cylindrical-wave approach (CWA). The incident plane wave may have a rather general shape in the time domain. The technique is applicable for arbitrary polarization, or any cylinder size and burial depth, and it gives results both in the near- and in the far-field regions. In this work, an application of the technique to a basic but practical detection problem is presented, showing good results.

Waveguide as a Near-Field Measuring Probe of the Two-Element Array Radiator
Paramesha Ajay Chakraborty
In the analysis, an open-ended rectangular waveguide in an infinite ground plane is used as a near-field probe and the two-element waveguide array in an infinite ground plane is used as a radiator. Moment method analysis is used to find the reflection coefficient of the array element and probe voltage. The reflection coefficient of the array element, which is also an open-end of a rectangular waveguide, is computed and compared with the reflection coefficients, when the probe is at different positions in the near-field. The computations have also been carried out to find the induced probe voltage, when the probe scan in transverse plane (planar scanning) at a distance z1 from the radiator. Good agreement is obtained between measured and MOM results.

Some Far Field Features of Cylindrical Microstrip Antenna on an Electrically Small Cylinder
Alexander Svezhentsev
The far field behavior of a small wave size cylindrical microstrip antenna (CMA) has been originally analyzed for a small elevation angle, where a pronounced maximum has been found. Also it has been found that a similar maximum takes place in the far field of an electric dipole taken instead of the patch. It has been shown that the phenomenon originates to the far field behavior of the annular electric current given in the form of n = 1 azimuthally traveling wave harmonic held in the series representation of the electric dipole field. Approximate analytical expressions have been obtained describing the far-field components for two different polarizations. Also, the CMA radiation pattern is shown to bear similarities to the pattern of an electric dipole placed on a dielectric substrate surrounding a circular metal cylinder.

Temperature Dependence Analysis of the Chromatic Dispersion in Wii-Type Zero-Dispersion Shifted Fiber (Zdsf)
Ali Rostami Somayeh Makouei
In this paper, we design the zero-dispersion wavelength shifted fiber based on the WII-type triple clad single mode optical fiber and consider the transmission parameters fluctuations owing to environmental conditions such as temperature variations on dispersion behavior of fiber. In order to estimate the thermal coefficients, the model introduced by Ghosh [1] is applied. Our calculation show that the thermal coefficient extracted for the chromatic dispersion, its slope, and the zero dispersion wavelength swing are -1.21×10-3 ps/km/nm/oC, +2.96×10-3 ps/km/nm2/oC, and +3.33× 10-2 nm/oC at 1.55 μm respectively. It is shown that in optical fiber design especially for dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) systems, effect of temperature on channel displacement is critical and should be considered carefully.

Peculiarities of Spatial Spectrum of Scattered Electromagnetic Waves in Anisotropic Inhomogeneous Medium
Vladimir Gavrilenko George Jandieri Akira Ishimaru Vakhtang Jandieri
Features of spatial power spectrum (SPS) of scattered radiation in a randomly inhomogeneous medium with strongly prolated anisotropic inhomogeneities of dielectric permittivity are investigated. In single scattering approximation, it has been shown that a pronounced gap along a direction of prolate inhomogeneities appears in SPS. Features of SPS of multiple scattered waves at oblique illumination of a boundary of randomly-inhomogeneous medium with prolate irregularities have been analytically studied using smooth perturbation method taking into account diffraction effects. Numerical calculations have shown that with an increase of a distance passing by the wave in random media, SPS has a double-peaked shape and a gap substantially increases. Its maximum is slightly changed and the width is broadening. The results have been obtained analytically for the first time and could find extensive practical application in optics and be useful in development of principles of remote sensing of random media.

On the Complex Symmetry of the Poincar'E-Steklov Operator
Luc Knockaert Daniel De Zutter
Employing Lorentz reciprocity and the Stratton-Chu formalism it is shown that the Poincare-Steklov or admittance operator can be interpreted as a complex symmetric operator mapping the tangential electric field (instead of the equivalent magnetic current) onto the equivalent electric current. We show that the pertinent block Calder´on projectors can be reformulated as operators with a block Hamiltonian structure. This leads to an explicitly complex symmetric Schur complement expression for both the interior and exterior admittance operators.

Ragini Srivastava Khem Thapa Shyam Pati Sant Ojha
It is well known that under certain conditions, one dimensional photonic crystal (1D-PC) displays total omni-directional reflection (ODR) band gaps. The enhancement of total omnidirectional reflection band gap in 1D-PC is calculated theoretically. Using Transfer Matrix Method (TMM) and Bloch theorem, the reflectivity of one dimensional periodic structure for TEand TM-modes at different angles of incidence has been calculated.

Eddy Currents in Solid Rectangular Cores
Saurabh Kumar Mukerji Moleykutty George M. Ramamurthy Khandaker Asaduzzaman
An expression for the eddy current loss in solid rectangular cores is obtained using linear electromagnetic field analysis. Wherefrom text book formula for eddy current loss is derived highlighting various assumptions involved. To get an insight into the current interruption phenomena, electromagnetic fields in a composite rectangular core are analyzed. It is concluded that the reduction in eddy current loss in a laminated cores is basically due to the insertion of distributed capacitors in eddy current paths. Presence of these capacitors increases the impedance of the eddy current path, reducing eddy currents and eddy current loss.

H. Ghorbaninejad Mohammad Khalaj-Amirhosseini
In this paper, a compact waveguide bandpass filter is proposed. The proposed structure consists of some inductive diaphragms in a rectangular waveguide and the regions between them have been filled fully by dielectrics. The relations between the physical and electrical parameters of the existed asymmetrical impedance invertors are obtained. The usefulness of the proposed structure and its performance are verified by designing and simulating an equal-ripple X-band bandpass filter.

The Effect of Channel Coding Rate on the Resistance of Direct-Sequence Spread-Spectrum Communication Systems to Narrow-Band Interference
Paeiz Azmi
In this paper, optimum code rates for a number of channel codes which are used in the coded direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DS-SS) and coded code-division multiple-access (CDMA) communication systems operating in the presence of narrow-band interference (NBI) are investigated. The criteria in obtaining the optimum code rates is based on maximum tolerable NBI power to signal power ratio. First, we consider Optimum Codes, Super Orthogonal Codes (SOC), and Repetition Codes for a single-user DS-SS system and then, the optimum rates for the Optimum Codes in CDMA system using single-user and multi-user detection methods are obtained. In the latter case, we will consider evaluating the optimum code rate for two different multi-user detection schemes, namely, a detection method using joint coding/decoding and a detection method using successive interference cancellation.

Capacitive Interdigital Sensor with Inhomogeneous Nematic Liquid Crystal Film
Alaeddin Abu-Abed Robert Lindquist
The performance of capacitive interdigital sensors involved with anisotropic and inhomogeneous nematic liquid crystal (LC) film is investigated. These sensors have potential applications in chemical and biological systems. The theory for modeling the permittivity tensor of the LC film as a function of the molecular orientation is presented. The LC film is handled as inhomogeneous material where molecules are assumed to have different orientations with respect to the frame axes. Under these conditions, fringing field capacitances as functions of the molecular deformations are calculated. Examples of modeled capacitive interdigital sensors in the present of different inhomogeneous distributions of LC films will be studied and discussed.

Three-Dimensional Gaussian Beam Scattering from a Periodic Sequence of BI-Isotropic and Material Layers
Vladimir Tuz
The three-dimensional Gaussian beam scattering from the bounded periodic sequence of one-to-one composed isotropic magnetodielectric and bi-isotropic layers are investigated. The beam field is represented by an angular continuous spectrum of plane wave. The problem of the partial plane wave diffraction on the structure is solved using the circuit theory and the transfer matrix methods. It is found that after reflection from the structure, the circular Gaussian beam becomes, in general, an elliptical Gaussian beam, in addition to a displacement of the beam axis from the position predicted by ray optics.

New Techniques to Conquer the Image Resolution Enhancement Problem
Said El-Khamy Mohiy Hadhoud Moawad Ibrahim Dessouky Bassiouny Salam Fathi Abd El-Samie
This paper presents some new techniques for high resolution (HR) image processing and compares between them. The paper focuses on two main topics, image interpolation and image superresolution. By image interpolation, we mean extracting an HR image from a single Degraded low resolution (LR) image. Polynomial based image interpolation is reviewed. Some new techniques for adaptive image interpolation and inverse image interpolation are presented. The other topic treated in this paper is image super-resolution. By image super resolution, we mean extracting a single HR image either from multiple observations or multiple frames. The paper focuses on the problem of image super resolution using wavelet fusion and presents several super resolution reconstruction algorithms based on the idea of wavelet fusion.
