Abnormal Circularly Polarized Propagation Over Terrain Profile with Gaussian Correlated Roughness
Xueyuan Chen Peng Xu Xinguo Ma Yucheng Yao Hui Lv
In application to active microwave remote sensing, the counterwise RL (left-hand circularly polarized transmitting and right-hand circularly polarized receiving) and LR polarized bistatic scattering are generally stronger than the likewise LL and RR ones, respectively. In this paper, we investigate the circularly polarized propagation over terrain profile at 1.575 GHz and 900 MHz in application to wireless communication. Completely different from common sense in remote sensing, however, numerical simulations show that field strengths for likewise polarizations are larger than those for counterwise polarizations. For further verification, circularly polarized bistatic scattering from terrain is also provided, which is consistent with previous conclusion that the counterwise LR polarized one is larger. Physical mechanism of such a contradictory behavior is explicated by local Fresnel reflections, and physical insights are offered for terrain propagation of circular polarizations. It is suggested that the likewise configuration be adopted in wireless communication, although the counterwise is adopted in microwave remote sensing.

Amina Fattouche Lila Mouffok Sami Hebib Ali Mansoul
A triple band artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) featuring zero reflection phase at 1.18 GHz, 1.59 GHz, and 2.45 GHz is designed and modeled. A square patch is used to achieve the first resonance. The other two resonance frequencies are generated by two square slots inserted in the first patch. All the three resonant frequencies are adjusted independently of each other and easily predicted by the developed analytical model. A good agreement between electromagnetic simulation and analytical results is obtained with a resonance frequency shift lower than 120 MHz.

Miniaturizing Bandpass Filter Based on Half-Mode SIW for Sub-mm 5G Applications
Nabil Cherif Mehadji Abri Sarosh Ahmad Adnan Ghaffar Chahira Khial Fellah Benzerga Mohammed El Amine Chaib Hadjira Abri Badaoui Bouabdallah Roumeiça
A miniaturized half-mode substrate-integrated-waveguide (HMSIW) based bandpass filter with defected ground surface (DGS) for sub-5G applications is presented in this research. The novelty in this article is the proposal of an original configuration of an SIW Filter composed of a mix of DGS cells; each couple of C shapes is etched exactly beneath of two cross shapes, which give us long rejection. We have used six periodic cross-shaped slots as DGS in top of the cavity plane for disturbing the current and creating stopband rejection, and we have also used three couples of C-shaped DGS cells in the bottom plane to improve the performances of the proposed filter. This novel bandpass filter is developed on a 1.54 mm-thick FR-4 (with relative permittivity of 4.3 and the tangent loss of 0.025) operating in the band ranging from 3.4 GHz to 3.8 GHz with a bandwidth of 400 MHz and having the size of 13.5 × 38.6 mm2. The proposed HMSIW-based filter is simulated, fabricated, and measured. The measurement results are in decent agreement with the simulation results.

In this paper we present a high pass filter based on half mode substrate integrated waveguide HMSIW technology dedicated to the transmission of microwave signals range from 6 GHz to 18 GHz. The taper is used for microstripe to SIW transition. We designed SIW line transmission using CST and HFSS simulators on a Rogers RT5880 substrate with dielectric constant of 2.2 and thickness of 0.508 mm, and we used the half mode technique for miniaturizing the filter size and achieving a size reduction about of 50%. The fabricated filter size is 60 x 12 mm2. The lower measured return loss is about -51 dB. We compared the simulation results with measurement ones for validating our proposal. Good agreement between CST, HFSS and measurement results is observed.

A Novel Low-Profile Broadband Direct-Feed mm -Wave Antenna Array for 5G Smartphone Applications
Mohamed Marwan Omar Khaled Mohamed Akram Zeyad Bassem Ahmed Alieldin
In this paper, a novel low-profile direct feed antenna element is proposed to work across the mm-wave frequency band for 5G smartphone applications. The antenna covers the frequency band from 25-32 GHz achieving a wide fractional bandwidth of 24.5%. Contrary to most of the previously reported designs, the proposed antenna has a low-profile single-substrate structure and uses a conventional corporate feed. To improve the overall gain, a 16-element antenna array is formed based on the proposed antenna element. The total realized gain of the array is 15 dBi, and its size is 63×10×0.64 mm3 which fits inside a smartphone chassis. To validate the idea, a prototype is fabricated and measured. A study is also conducted, through simulations, on the beam steering capabilities of the antenna array using digital phase shifters. Having a simple structure and good performance makes the proposed antenna array an excellent candidate for 5G smartphone applications.

A Low-Profile Dual-Band Dual-Polarized Dipole Antenna for 5G Communication Applications
Shiqiang Fu Xuehao Zhao Chanjuan Li Zhongbao Wang
A dual-band dual-polarized dipole antenna with an artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) reflector is proposed, which can be applied in 5G base stations. The antenna consists of a pair of ±45° crossed dipoles and a wideband AMC reflector. By adopting arrow-shaped dipoles and introducing slots, dual-band characteristic is achieved. The AMC is designed to operate with 90° reflection-phase bandwidth of 2.1-3.9 GHz (30%). Compared with using traditional reflector, the profile height can be reduced from 0.25λ0 to 0.11λ0 (where λ0 is the free-space wavelength at 2.6 GHz). The measurement results show that the impedance bandwidth with |S11| < -14 dB is about 15.5% (2.44-2.85 GHz) and 18.6% (3.17-3.82 GHz), covering the Sub-6 GHz bands. The average gain is 8.5 dBi in the lower band and 8.2 dBi in the upper band. At 2.6 GHz and 3.45 GHz, the half-power beamwidth of the antenna is 77° and 80°, respectively. In the two bands, the port isolation of the antenna is more than 28 dB, and the cross-polarization level is less than -20 dB.

Shihao Wu Haoran Shi
This paper presents a broadband antenna for 5G indoor micro base station, which has a low profile and simple structure. The proposed antenna avoids the traditional high-cost multilayer technology and is a low-cost configuration. It consists of a center fed circular patch with four shorting pins to properly stimulate the radiation mode of TM01 and TM31 internally. Next, four equally sized fan-shaped slots are opened in the radiator to further expand the bandwidth and improve the input impedance. |S11| < -10 dB simulation impedance bandwidth is about 51% from 3.11 to 5.24 GHz and covers 5G n78 (3.3-3.8 GHz) and n77 (3.3-4.2 GHz) and the n79 (4.4-5 GHz). The voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) < 1.8 in the whole operating frequency band, which has good matching characteristics.

Toward the Development of an Efficient and Stability-Improved FDTD Method for Anisotropic Magnetized Plasma
Jian-Yun Gao Xiang-Hua Wang
An efficient and stability-improved finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method with auxiliary difference equations (ADE) for cold magnetized plasma is developed in this paper. The two equations of Ampere's law and the auxiliary equation for plasma are unified as a single equation at first. Then the leapfrog difference scheme is applied to it and Faraday's law, respectively. By introducing a mid-term computation into the unified equation, the iterative equations of the ADE-FDTD for plasma are derived. Its stability condition remains the same as that of a vacuum which is analyzed and numerically verified. Numerical experiments show that our proposed method is more efficient than those provided by others but with the same accuracy. Finally, the transmission properties of a magnetized plasmonic slab are investigated. The reflection and transmission coefficients of the right-circularly-polarized (RCP) and left-circularly-polarized (LCP) waves are calculated. The results show that our proposed method can be applied to study these plasma-based structures accurately and efficiently.

Nishant Shukla Vikas Gupta Praveen Ambati
RF and mm wave filterssuffers from a common problem of asymmetries in filters transmission response caused by unwanted field couplings between individual resonators. In this paper, unwanted or spurious couplings between non-adjacent resonators are identified in the filter network from the simulation stage and mitigated to the extent possible. A 4-pole Quasi Elliptic Planar Band Pass Filter is fabricated at 48.5 GHz on a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) substrate. An improvement of 6 dB in side lobe imbalance in filter transmission response is obtained. Effect of spurious coupling on band pass filters transmission response is demonstrated through EM simulation. Commensurate measurement results are presented.

Low Sidelobe and Tilted Beam Microstrip Antenna for Circularly-Polarized SAR Onboard UAV
Yohandri Asrizal Asif Awaludin Josaphat Tetuko Sri Sumantyo
This work is purposed to provide microstrip antennas for a CP-SAR system with low sidelobe, tilted beam, and circular polarization. This antenna is configured for the L-band (1.27 GHz) mounting on an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The proposed microstrip antenna consists of three-square radiating elements, due to the ease in fabrication. Meanwhile, the proximity structure has been adopted in the feeding network. The tilted beam was obtained by arranging the different phases for each element. On the other hand, a low sidelobe was achieved by managing the power distribution of each patch using the Chebyshev polynomial. The proposed antenna was precisely printed and examined in an anechoic chamber to verify the characteristics of the antenna such as polarization, sidelobe level, and beam direction. Based on the measurement results, the proposed antenna has a tilted beam and a low side lobe that meets the specifications of the CP-SAR system.

4-Port Planar MIMO Antenna Using Open-Slot Radiators for 5G New Radio (NR) Frequency Bands n38 (2570 to 2620 MHz ) and n41 (2496 MHz -2690 MHz ) Applications
Mohamed Mostafa Morsy
This article presents a compact, low profile, four ports multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO.) antenna operating at the n38 and n41 5G frequency bands. The antenna has a measured -10 dB bandwidth of 2.5-2.9 GHz with isolation less than -11 dB. The designed antenna system employs open slot radiators etched on a single-sided rectangular PCB substrate with a total size of 40 ×100 mm2, including a ground plane. The open slot radiators are symmetrically printed at the four corners of the rectangular substrate. The radiators are excited by 50-Ω strip lines. Rectangular-shaped slits are used as decoupling structures. MIMO parameters such as the envelope correlation coefficient (ECC), channel capacity loss (CCL), and mean effective gain (MEG) are being calculated using the measured results. The ECC is less than 0.1 over the entire operating band despite the antenna's small size. The proposed antenna shows good performance in two sub-6-GHz frequency bands for 5G NR applications: n38 (2570 to 2620 MHz) and n41 (2496 MHz-2690 MHz).

Design of a Double-Mode Plasmonic Wavelength Filter Using a Defective Circular Nano-Disk Resonator Coupled to Two MIM Waveguides
Imane Zegaar Abdesselam Hocini Ahlam Harhouz Djamel Khedrouche Hocine Bensalah
Various resonance modes, high transmission, and quality factor with simple design are highly desirable parameters for realizing nano-integrated plasmonic devices. In the context, a plasmonic structure consisting of two straight waveguides MIM coupled one central defective circular nano-disk resonator (CNDR) is proposed in this work. The insulator and metal of the proposed plasmonic filter are air and silver, respectively. The plasmonic filter is designed and investigated numerically by using the finite difference time domain method (FDTD). Our simulation results indicate that the proposed plasmonic filter has two transmission peaks with a maximum transmission equal to 80 and 70 percent. The advantages of the proposed filter are the various resonance modes with high transmission peaks and high quality factor which reaches 35.27. In view of these features, our proposed structure of plasmonic filter has the potential to be employed in various devices such as plasmonic demultiplexers and sensors for optical communication purposes.

Ranjit Kumar Rayala Singaravelu Raghavan
A dual-band hexagon shape substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) based band pass filter with single loop complementary spilt ring resonators (CSRRs) is introduced in this paper. The design parameters of this filter are optimized by using artificial neural networks (ANNs). Especially error back propagation multilayer perceptron (EBP-MLP) neural network with Levenberg-Marquart (LM) algorithm is used. A physical prototype of the proposed model is fabricated and tested. In the lower passband from 10.2 to 10.6 GHz, the insertion loss is about -0.8 dB with a fractional bandwidth of 3.85%, and in the upper passband from 12.11 to 13.31 GHz, the insertion loss is about -0.8 dB with a fractional bandwidth of 9.56%. It is observed that the insertion loss is same in both the passbands. The obtained experimental results are in good agreement with the estimated results using full-wave analysis and ANN optimization.

Bandpass Filters Based on Hybrid Structure of Substrate Integrated Waveguide (SIW) and Hilbert Defected Ground Structure (HDGS)
Mohammed El Amine Chaib Mehadji Abri Hadjira Abri Badaoui Nabil Cherif
In this article, two compact Substrate Integrated Waveguide (SIW) bandpass filters based on Defected Ground Structure (DGS) technology are proposed. Hilbert Cell of second orderis the resonator shape proposed for the DGS of both filters, where the first filter DGS consists of five pairs, and the second one uses only three pairs. The pair used in the first filter consists of two cells located side to side whereas they are placed face to face in the second filter. In order to enhance the performance of the second filter and based on the evanescent-mode technique, three other pairs of first order Hilbert cells are engraved on the top layer. Both band-pass filters are designed to operate in C band with a measured bandwidth of 1.8 GHz for the first filter and 0.86 GHz for the second one. The proposed structures have the same physical dimensions, which is 38.1 mm×16 mm with different measured insertion losses of -2.5 dB and -2.7 dB. Both structures exhibit an upper stopband rejection with attenuation around -20 dB and -29 dB, respectively. The filters operate in a transmission bandwidth of [5.5 GHz-7.3 GHz] and [5.27 GHz-6.13 GHz] with a fractional bandwidth (FBW) of 28.1% and 15.09% for the first filter and the second filter respectively. A good agreement is reported between the measured and simulated results.

Susceptibility of Civilian UAV to Wideband High Power Electromagnetic Pulses
Chaochao Yang Jin Meng Haitao Wang
As unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is widely used in many civilian fields the wideband (WB) high power electromagnetic radiation devices development, whether the WB radiation would influence the civilian UAV to fulfil its tasks needs to be analyzed. Therefore, the radiated susceptibility of three models of DJI UAVs is studied in the paper. A decimetric wave oscillator with the power of over 500 MW was introduced as the radiation source. In experiment, adjusting the distance between radiation antenna and UAVs to change the electric field and the testing antenna was employed to measure the electric field on line. The three models of UAVs can be shot down by the electric field of 10 kV/m, 20 kV/m and 30 kV/m, respectively. Besides, as electric field reached up to over 35 kV/m, the rotor motor, electric control system and inertial measurement unit (IMU) in Mavic Air and Mavic Air 2 were easier to burn down. Except that, the energy accumulation effect has been proved in the experiment. In conclusion, the UAVs should fulfill tasks in the WB electromagnetic environment whose electric field is much less than 10 kV/m, and some shielding methods are needed to make UAV survive.

This paper presents a mechanically reconfigurable reflectarray with height adjustment for phase compensation. We designed, fabricated, and measured a prototype of 11×11 elements with microcontrollers to verify the feasibility of the proposed reflectarray. Simulated results show that the phase curve of the unit has good linearity and exhibit broadband characteristics. The maximum phase shift of the unit reaches about 200° at a center frequency of 16 GHz, which meets the requirement of a reflectarray with 1-bit phase quantization. Experimental results show that the gain of the proposed reflectarray is 17.7 dBi, with beam scanning range of ±50°. The proposed configurations can be used for a low-cost beam scanning antenna in wireless communication.
