This thesis addresses the design and optimization of sparse non-uniform optical phased arrays (OPAs) for advanced automotive LiDAR systems. As autonomous driving technologies advance, the demand for high-resolution, reliable, and compact LiDAR systems has become increasingly critical. Traditional uniform OPAs, while effective, face limitations...

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,...

An innovative reconfigurable beamforming network concept for multiple high-gain agile and mutually zero-forced beam generation is proposed. Four-port couplers and variable phase shifters are used to synthesize the network. A 2 beam by 7 element beam former is designed and fabricated as proof of concept. A static scenario with the two beams...

In this work, we investigate antenna architectures to implement dual-mode operation in phased array designs. Planar slot antenna elements are used in array configuration, in combination with artificial dielectrics layers (ADLs) located in the close proximity of the array, to achieve pattern shaping. The artificial dielectric superstrate...

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...

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 effects of multipath on the statistical cell-edge user service quality is for the first time investigated for mm-wave multi-user communication systems. The focus is given on setting the user spacing constraints and the transmit array topology via thinning, which can be used to enhance wireless security or decrease analog/digital complexity....

An improved system-level power consumption model (PCM) for 5G base station multi-beam phased-array transmit architectures is developed. Using this model, it is shown that an optimum number of antenna elements of the array exists with respect to the total power consumption. The proposed model is benchmarked against a recent study which is shown...

Design of millimeter-wave arrays for base stations operating in dense urban environment is investigated. Innovative designs for linear subarrays with shaped beam patterns for hybrid beamforming are proposed. The number of elements and element spacings in the subarrays are optimally selected based on a pattern matching technique. The subarrays...

Ultrasound (US) neuromodulation and ultrasonic power transfer to implanted devices demand novel ultrasound transmitters capable of steering focused ultrasound waves in 3D with high spatial resolution and US pressure, while having a miniaturized form factor. Meeting these requirements needs a 2D array of ultrasound transducers directly...

At the airports, fast-scanning phased array radars are used to detect point-like targets, e.g., birds and drones. However, these radars do not possess Doppler processing and thus are not used for observation of the weather targets like precipitation events. A series of steps need to be performed, such as beamforming in elevation, target masking...

The fifth generation of mobile communication poses challenges in the form of increased data volume, network scalability and efficient network operation. An important part in meeting these requirements is the use of the mm-wave frequency range, enabling the use of a wide bandwidth and therefore the desired high-data rates. However, a challenging...

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...

This letter presents a millimeter-wave (mm-wave) vector-modulated phase shifter (VMPS) for phased-array applications. To improve the phase-shift accuracy without drastically increasing design complexity, the proposed VMPS structure employs variable-gain amplifiers (VGAs) that offer 2× better resolution at their low-gain...

We report on the first demonstration of dynamic beam steering using a scanning lens phased array. A scanning lens phased array relies on a combination of mechanical and electrical phase shifting to dynamically steer a high-gain beam beyond the grating-lobe free region using a sparse array. These two concepts have been demonstrated separately in...

Optimal design of uniformly-fed aperiodic millimeter-wave phased array topologies for site-specific and quasi interference-free operation is presented. Several use cases with different number of line-of-sight cells in the close vicinity of the base station, and for various widths and shapes of the cells, are analyzed. The arrays are synthesized...

Eavesdropping attacks are a severe threat to millimeter-wave (mmWave) networks that use low-resolution phased arrays. Although directional beamforming in mmWave phased arrays provides natural defense against eavesdropping, the use of low-resolution phase shifters induces energy leakage into unintended directions. This energy leakage can be...

New non-imaging ultrasound applications, such as ultrasound stimulation and ultrasonic power transfer, need sub-millimeter volumetric spatial resolution, electronically control of the focal spot location, high ultrasound intensity, and a tiny form factor. Satisfying these requirements demands a high-frequency phased array ultrasound transducer....
