This study used a bibliometric method to find quantitative evidence of publication and citing patterns within UK academia. The publications of a random sample of UK research—active academics for each of the years 2003 and 2008—were collected and analysed to gather data regarding referencing practices, along with any identifiable trends between the 2 years.(More)
of the local reference node concept coupled with steady-state and transient analyses using state variables allows the incorporation of unrestrained EM modeling of microwave structures in a circuit simulator. A strategy implementing global modeling of electrically large microwave systems using the circuit abstraction is presented. This is applied to the(More)
We investigate the growth of periodically aligned silicon microstructures for the fabrication of square spiral photonic crystals using the glancing angle deposition phi-sweep process. We report the optimization of the phi-sweep offset angle for fabrication of microstructures with more precise geometry. The effects of varying the sweep offset angle of the(More)
SUMMERS, MARK ALAN. Simulation of a Quasi-Optical Grid Amplifier. (Under the direction of Michael B. Steer.) An integrated electromagnetic and circuit simulation environment is developed for the simulation of spatial power combining systems. The analysis incorporates surface modes and full nonlinear effects. The simulation environment includes a full-wave(More)
A new interferometer-based optical sensing platform with nanostructured thin films of ZrO2 or TiO2 as sensing environment has been developed. With the application of an IC compatible Si(3)N(4) waveguide technology, Mach-Zehnder interferometer devices have been fabricated. The application of the glancing angle deposition technique allowed fabrication of(More)
