—A planar Microwave Band Gap (MBG) cavity res-onator filter that is completely compatible with current commercial printed circuit board (PCB) fabrication techniques has been designed, fabricated and tested. This filter provides a 1.33% band-width passband response at 10.67 GHz with a corresponding insertion loss of 2.17 dB. Design considerations and… (More)
—A reconfigurable planar electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) cavity resonator has been designed, fabricated, and tested. The resonator, based on a microstrip-coupled cavity constructed with periodic metallic post side walls, resonates at 10.60 GHz or 8.63 GHz, depending on the state of two rows of switchable post elements. Fabricated on 0.031 " 5880 Duroid, the… (More)
Leaf Area Index (LAI) and vegetation cover are important metrics for deriving structural information of forest ecosystems across multiple scales. Ground-based measurements of LAI are necessary for up-scaling to coarse resolution satellite products as well as for calibrating and validating such products derived from airborne and satellite remote sensing… (More)
—A Duroid-based X-band electromagnetic band gap (EBG) Chebyshev 3-pole bandpass filter that is compatible with standard printed circuit board (PCB) fabrication techniques has been designed, fabricated, and tested. The filter consists of three EBG cavities in a multi-layer design. It provides a 5.95% band-width response at the resonant frequency = 9.72 GHz… (More)
This paper applies a Bayesian network to model multi criteria distribution maps and to discover knowledge contained in spatial data. The procedure consists of three steps: pre processing map data, training the Bayesian Network model using distribution maps of Australia and testing the generalization and diagnosis of the model using individual states' maps.… (More)
—A high-Duroid-based planar electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) cavity resonator/filter has been designed, fabricated , and tested. It was implemented in Rogers Duroid 5880 with standard board fabrication techniques. This filter provides a measured of 844 and a 0.91% bandwidth passband response at 10.63 GHz with a corresponding insertion loss of 2.76 dB.
