Radiation pattern measurements is a critical step in characterizing antennas before they are used in any system for a specific application. To identify any defects or to acquire the true radiation characteristics of the antenna under test, densely sampled measurements are desired. However, this results in a time and cost expensive measurement...

In this work we present calibration approaches aimed at mitigating the measurement error in testbenches featuring multiple sensor-nodes and operating over-the-air. Such errors can arise from fluctuations in component responses and mechanical tolerances of the setup. The calibration approaches are detailed for the case of the Antenna Dome...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Traditionally, a geographical area can be monitored via land based communication systems or spaceborne remote systems for disaster prevention. However both methods have their respective limitations in terms of resolution, accuracy and real time observation. A new suborbital constellation concept offers an independent unit device which will be...

This paper presents a 5G downlink system model for a hybrid multi-user beamforming technique at the base station. The presented technique employs power flux equalization in the elevation plane using a fixed analog cosecant-shaped beam and digital beamforming in the azimuth plane. The system performances of various beamforming algorithms are...

Ground penetrating radar imaging from the data acquired with arbitrarily oriented dipole-like antennas is considered. To take into account variations of antenna orientations resulting in spatial rotation of antenna radiation patterns and polarizations of transmitted fields, the full-wave method that accounts for the near-, intermediate-, and...

Next generation sub-mm imaging instruments require kilo-pixel focal plane arrays filled with background limited detectors. Microwave kinetic inductance detectors (MKIDs) are a state-of-the-art detector for future instruments due to their inherent multiplexing capabilities. An MKID consists of a superconducting resonator coupled to a feed-line...

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...

In this paper, we present an overview of our recent works on artificial dielectric layers (ADLs), used to enhance the radiation efficiency of planar printed antennas and arrays. The artificial material is realized by introducing planar sub-resonant metallic inclusions in a host material. This allows to enhance the permittivity of the host...

The impact of the fluctuations in the locations of elementary radiators on the radiation properties of three-dimensional (3D) array antennas is studied. The principal radiation features (sidelobes level, beam squint) are examined based on illustrative examples. Some atypical behaviours, that are specific to 3D arrays, are highlighted. The effect...

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...

A full time-domain analysis is presented of the radiation properties of array antennas composed of identical, mutually translationally shifted, pulsed electric-current excited elements. An expression is derived for the radiated field in the farfield region, the parameters in which provide the basis for studying the pulsed-field beam-shaping and...

Antenna-coupled suspended single carbon nanotubes exposed to 108?GHz microwave radiation are shown to be selectively heated with respect to their metal contacts. This leads to an increase in the conductance as well as to the development of a power-dependent DC voltage. The increased conductance stems from the temperature dependence of tunneling...

An analysis is given of possible interference induced by a position marker system, called RASP, into aircraft radio altimeters. The RASP system is used as a marker beacon in flight tests for trajectory measurements, and operates on 4.3 GHz. It is concluded that radio altimeters will not experience any harmful interference from a RASP transmitter.
