In recent years, radar systems and satellite communications require phased array antennas that are capable of incorporating frequency and angular selectivity while maintaining a low profile. Active phased array antennas must comply with stringent requirements in terms of sensitivity to interference caused by other nearby radiating systems,...

The effect of forming single and multi-lobe beam<br/>patterns at mm-wave base station antennas on the received signal<br/>strength and co-channel interference is studied for mm-wave urban outdoor environments. A sample, simplified urban city model is used with randomly selected user positions. Ray tracing simulations are performed to analyze the...

Phased array ultrasonic testing is widely used to test structures for flaws due to its ability to produce steered and focused beams. The inherent anisotropic nature of some materials, however, leads to skewing and distortion of the phased array beam and consequently measurement errors. To overcome this, a quantitative model of phased array...

In this paper we ultrasonic signals from array transducers are simulated using the Thompson and Gray measurement model. The measurement model consists of a beam model, a system efficiency factor which characterizes the response of the electro-mechanical and electrical components of the system, and a flaw scattering model. To inspect layered...

The manufacturing of Fibre Metal Laminates, consisting of alternating layers of pre-preg fibre and metal is complex, and defects can be introduced during manufacturing. The automation of the manufacturing steps is vital for future Glare production, and specific defects have to be considered. Among them, gaps between pre-preg plies represent a...

Connected arrays of slots loaded with artificial dielectric layers have been proposed to realize wideband phased arrays with large scan capability. The role of the artificial dielectric superstrate is to provide a wide angle impedance matching transformation from the impedance at the feeding port of the unit cell to the free space impedance....

The scanning performance of wide-angular scanning linear arrays is primarily degraded by the limited angular profile of the employed elements' patterns. This paper introduces an innovative strategy for compensating this degradation by using subarrays. Our design uses a uniform linear array with half-wavelength spaced elements, supplemented by...

Minimization of the maximum sidelobe level for a given array geometry, amplitude distribution, and nulling sectors by phase-only adjustment of the element coefficients is studied. Nonlinear optimization problem for phase distribution is solved using a novel iterative convex optimization algorithm, which includes mutual coupling effects and...

Spectroscopy is a powerful tool to investigate the physical properties of complex systems. The interaction of light with matter allows to get insights into the structure of it. Chapter 1 is dedicated to introduce this topic and to show the developments of the technologies that paved the way to its success. Special focus is given to the...

A five-layer frequency selective surface (FSS) composed of subwavelength elements with large harmonic rejection bandwidth is presented. The FSS design is based on an equivalent circuit model, where the interlayer interaction is only described with a single transmission line representing the fundamental Floquet wave. A prototype of the...

A convex iterative algorithm for the synthesis of uniform amplitude, space-tapered linear phased arrays with simultaneous multiple beam optimization for 5G applications is presented. The performance of the algorithm is demonstrated by the synthesis of two arrays having 16 and 24 elements with 60 and 90 degree scan range, respectively. The effect...

In this paper, we present a 5G base station phased antenna array concept based on the power equalization in the elevation cut. We designed aperture coupling microstrip patch array exploiting a substrate integrated waveguide structure as feeding line for realization of the cosecant radiation pattern in elevation cut. The antenna is designed to be...

The huge amount of data that needs to be transferred between probe and imaging system becomes a major issue when the data transfer capacity is limited, e.g. in handheld systems, wireless probes and miniaturized probes. The amount of data can be significantly reduced by using two-stage beamforming. The first stage consists of a fixed focus...

Weight reduction is an important driver of the aerospace industry, which encourages the development of lightweight joining techniques to substitute rivet joints. Friction stir welding (FSW) is a solid-state process that enables the production of lighter joints with a small performance reduction compared to the base material properties....

A frequency reconfigurable phased array element is presented. The operational band of the single port L/S-band antenna can be selected by modifying the element apertures with p-I-n diode switches. The antenna element satisfies strict requirements on its frequency band separation (2.2:1), size, feeding structure and control lines to be...

A novel two-port, dual-band square-ring microstrip antenna element for wide-angle scanning planar phased array is proposed. The two ports are used to operate the antenna array over the L and S radar bands. Microstrip square-ring radiators are chosen due to their smaller dimensions compared to the conventional microstrip patch. To extend...

We present a practical implementation of a leaky-wave thinned phased array in printed circuit board (PCB) technology. In this paper, we demonstrate that a reduction of the grating lobes, and therefore an improved gain in a thinned phased array, with respect to standard solutions, is achieved by virtue of the angular filtering introduced by a...

Sensors such as phased array radars play a crucial role in public safety. They are unavoidable for surveillance, threat identification and post-disaster management. However, different scenarios impose immensely diverse requirements for these systems. Phased array systems occupy a large space. In addition, if different antenna systems are needed...
