This work describes an UWB impulse transmitter with integrated antenna in the 60 GHz band implemented in CMOS65nm SOI technology. The transmitter aims low-power short-range high data-rate communication systems for fast-downloading applications. It consists of an oscillator that is switched on-and-off by the digital data to be transmitted and a medium power(More)
This paper investigates the effects of the three-dimensional arrangement of antennae and frequency on temperature distributions that can be achieved in regional hyperthermia using an electromagnetic phased array. It compares the results of power-based and temperature-based optimization. Thus, one is able to explain the discrepancies between previous studies(More)
Context. The LOFAR (LOw Frequency ARray) radio telescope is a giant digital phased array interferometer with multiple antennas distributed in Europe. It provides discrete sets of Fourier components of the sky brightness. Recovering the original brightness distribution with aperture synthesis forms an inverse problem that can be solved by various(More)
Low frequency radio waves, while challenging to observe, are a rich source of information about pulsars. The LOw Frequency ARray (LOFAR) is a new radio interferometer operating in the lowest 4 octaves of the ionospheric " radio window " : 10–240 MHz, that will greatly facilitate observing pulsars at low radio frequencies. Through the huge collecting area,(More)

Faint undetected sources of radio-frequency interference (RFI) might become visible in long radio observations when they are consistently present over time. Thereby, they might obstruct the detection of the weak astronomical signals of interest. This issue is especially important for Epoch of Reionisation (EoR) projects that try to detect the faint(More)
