We present a dual-polarized connected array of slots with an artificial dielectric layer (ADL) radome for mobile communication applications operating in the sub-6 GHz and the upper 6 GHz bands of 5G. The radiating slots are combined with two interchangeable ADL radomes with different thicknesses, targeting the bands 6-8 and 2-8 GHz,...

Millimeter- and submillimeter wave applications, such as point-to-point wireless communications in beyond-5G scenarios, long-range automotive radars and astronomy and astrophysics science cases from space require antennas with high-gain beams that are steerable. At lower (microwave) frequencies, fully sampled phased arrays with thousands of...

Millimeter wave (mmWave) technology can achieve high-speed communication due to the large available spectrum. Furthermore, the use of directional beams in mmWave system provides a natural defense against physical layer security attacks. In practice, however, the beams are imperfect due to mmWave hardware limitations such as the low-resolution...

A novel framework to enhance the angular resolution of automotive radars is proposed. An approach to enlarge the antenna aperture using artificial neural networks is developed using a self-supervised learning scheme. Data from a high angular resolution radar, i.e., a radar with a large antenna aperture, is used to train a deep neural network...

Efficient prediction of embedded element patterns (EEPs) is including the mutual coupling (MC) effects in the optimization of irregular planar arrays is studied for the first time in the literature. An ANN-based methodology is used to predict the pattern of each element in the whole visible space for a flexible planar array topology in...

The problem of single-snapshot direction of arrival (DoA) estimation with antenna arrays has been considered. A sectorized approach based on Bayesian Compressive Sensing (BCS) has been proposed. In this method, the angular space is discretized, defining many non-overlapping small grids which cover the desired large angular space. First, a BCS...

A novel electromagnetic-thermal codesign and optimization methodology is proposed for thermal management in active finned-heatsink antenna arrays. An innovative complementary split-ring resonator embedded dual-functional (i.e., heat-dissipating electromagnetic-isolation) wall is introduced. For concept demonstration, a two-element unit cell...

This article presents the development of a focal plane array (FPA) for terahertz imaging applications with a near diffraction-limited resolution achieved through a very tight sampling of the focal plane. The antenna array is integrated with direct detectors in a 22-nm CMOS technology and operates from 200 to 600 GHz. The tight sampling of the...

The continuous advancements in the coverage and sensitivity of terahertz direct-detector imagers places increasing constraints on the test benches needed for characterization. Already, relative differences on the order of a few decibels are observed between simulated and measured performance in the state-of-the-art literature. This...

We have simulated and measured the beam properties of lens-antenna coupled hot electron bolometer mixers at a few supra-terahertz frequencies between 1.4 and 5.3 THz. The quasi-optical structures consist of an elliptical lens and a logarithmic spiral antenna. The model used for our simulations consists of a finite-element analysis to simulate...

A novel approach for the practical realization of the feeding lines in connected array of slots is presented. The proposed feed concept is based on a parallel-plate waveguide (PPW) structure and allows simplifying the unit cell design. When compared to the typical integrated coaxial feed, the PPW-based feeding structure can reduce the cost...

We present a study on beam coupling in radiating structures that support multiple simultaneous beams. The formation of multiple beams is relevant in modern wireless communication applications when diverse data streams can be sent from a single transmitter to users located in different directions. General expressions are provided that relate...

We report a high accuracy pointing technique for quasi-optical hot electron bolometer (HEB) mixers in focal-plane arrays designed to operate at 1.4, 1.9, and 4.7 THz. The high accuracy pointing is achieved by prealignment of a HEB chip to a lens, measuring the angular error of each mixer in an array assembly, and then realignment of the chip...

Phased arrays, commonly used in IEEE 802.11ad and 5G radios, are capable of focusing radio frequency signals in a specific direction or a spatial region. Beamforming achieves such directional or spatial concentration of signals and enables phased array-based radios to achieve high data rates. Designing beams for millimeter wave and terahertz...

We present an efficient method for the analysis of finite connected slot arrays in the presence of stratified media. The formulation is based on a spectral method of moments, where only one basis function is considered for each array element and one for each slot edge. An expression for the mutual impedance is derived in terms of a double...

In this article, a concept of a phased antenna array based on substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) technology for 5G base stations is proposed. The array has a cosecant radiation pattern in the vertical plane for uniform illumination in a sector area. The array itself consists of 16 SIW traveling wave subarrays of 12 slot-coupled microstrip...

The development of fifth-generation (5G) technology is the beginning of a rapid transition in the world of wireless communications. Gbps data rates, minimal latency, and good connectivity are the ultimate aims of 5G. To achieve them, 5G systems employ the mm-Wave frequency band which has a frequency range above 24GHz and so allows for higher...
