The observable field is defined as the portion of the incident field that can contribute to the power received by an antenna. Recently, the observable field was estimated for a plane wave incidence. Here, the procedure is extended to a general incident field expressed as a superposition of homogeneous plane waves. The observable field concept...

Photoconductive antennas (PCAs) have been extensively utilized for the generation of broadband pulses over very large bandwidths. PCAs rely on a semiconductor (e.g. LT- GaAs) gap pumped by a laser and coupled to a passive structure biased at a certain voltage level. When the laser impinges on the semiconductor gap with an appropriate carrier...

We propose a systematic approach to describe planar slot antennas, embedded in generic stratified media. An equivalent transmission line model for the slot is proposed, based on a spectral domain analysis. First, we introduce a method of moments solution to model semi-infinite slots, fed by a deltagap excitation. The solution entails only two...

We present a general analysis to describe non-periodic artificial dielectric layers (ADLs). Closed-form expressions for the equivalent layer impedance are given for generic plane-wave incidence, assuming that each individual layer can differ from the others in terms of geometrical parameters. By dropping the assumption of identical layers,...

We use simulations to optimize perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells in a novel three-terminal configuration, with one terminal at the front and two at the rear. We consider configurations in which the top cell has either the inverted or the same polarity as the bottom cell. Our goal is to minimize the optical losses, to compare the...

Closed-form expressions to describe artificial dielectric layers (ADLs) are presented. The propagation of a generic plane wave within the artificial material is described by means of transmission line models, where each layer is represented as an equivalent shunt impedance. The given analytical formulas for the shunt impedance account for the...

Employing bipolar dc distribution systems introduces the possibility of imbalance in the system. To analyze these systems it is crucial to create novel modelling techniques. This paper presents a method to decompose dc distribution systems into symmetrical components. The presented method simplifies the analysis of balanced, unbalanced, and...

This second part of two papers' sequence presents the experimental validation of the Norton equivalent circuit model for pulsed photoconductive antennas (PCAs) provided in the first paper of the sequence. To this goal, different prototypes of photoconductive antenna sources have been manufactured and assembled. The average powers radiated and...

A novel equivalent circuit for pulsed photoconductive sources is introduced for describing the coupling between the photoconductive gap and the antenna. The proposed circuit effectively describes the mechanism of feeding the antenna by the semiconductor when this latter is illuminated by a laser operating in a pulsed mode. Starting from the...

The past few years have seen strong growth of solar-based off-grid energy solutions such as Solar Home Systems (SHS) as a means to ameliorate the grave problem of energy poverty. Battery storage is an essential component of SHS. An accurate battery model can play a vital role in SHS design. Knowing the dynamic behaviour of the battery is...

Photoconductive antennas (PCA) are widely used in contemporary THz systems, especially in terahertz time-domain spectroscopy. They are used to radiate and receive THz power. The study of the generation and reception of THz radiation involves both semiconductor theory, electromagnetics, and antenna theory. In this work, after a review of some...

We present an analytical method to model artificial dielectric layers (ADLs) of finite height. Starting from the closed-form solution for the scattering from a single layer under plane wave illumination, the formulation is extended to the multi-layer case, by including the higher-order interaction between parallel layers in analytical form. The...
