The wireless measurement of various physical quantities from the analysis of the RADAR Cross Sections variability of passive electromagnetic sensors is presented. A millimetre-wave Frequency-Modulated Continuous-Wave RADAR is used for both remote sensing and wireless identification of sensors. Long reading ranges (up to some decameters) may be reached at… (More)
— A wireless, passive, and ultrasensitive temperature transducer is presented in this paper. The transducer consists of split ring resonators loaded with micro-bimorph cantilevers, which can potentially operate up to millimeter-wave frequencies (above 30 GHz). As the temperature changes, the bimorph cantilevers deflect and result in a shift of the resonant… (More)
This paper addresses an overview of the wireless sensor networks. It is shown that MEMS/NEMS technologies and SIP concept are well suited for advanced architectures. It is also shown analog architectures have to be compatible with digital signal techniques to develop smart network of microsystem.
—We present a new miniaturized (below 1 mm) temperature sensor based on microfluidic technology and radar passive interrogation principles, which can be easily applied for temperature telemetry for medical applications. The chip-less microsystem is made up of a planar-gap capacitor with a microchannel located in between its plates. The temperature-dependent… (More)
Nowadays, scientists are interested in using computer grids to run their specific domain applications. Nevertheless the difficulty for non expert in computer science to run those applications on a high number of nodes discourages them. This paper deals with the deployment and the management of an electromagnetic simulator on a computer grid, by using the… (More)
