This paper presents a synthesis approach based on a variable slope profile. The method is demonstrated by synthesizing an antenna with a quasi-constant gain over a given frequency range. The antenna configuration resulting from synthesis was simulated, manufactured and measured in order to validate our method.
The area of underground radio technology represents a constant problem among radio communication systems. This paper aims to suggest a possible scenario for transmission/receiving of signals from a salt mine. It is assumed that the system used is a synchronous CDMA system and the users' signals have equal powers. In order for the performances to be improved… (More)
We have previously proposed an indoor measuring technique for antenna gain, based on averaging a normalized transfer function over a distance range. Simulated and measured results have also been presented, in order to validate the method. In this paper, we assess the accuracy of our method by comparing the results to those issued from a traditional,… (More)
Simple, compact low-cost microwave bandpass filters with strongly asymmetric characteristics, based on new topologies, are investigated, designed, fabricated and measured. A classical fourth-order filter or quadruplet, for example, has two transmission zeros located symmetrically, one on each side of the passband. A filter of the same order and,… (More)
A new topology for fourth-order microstrip bandpass filters is investigated in this paper. Compared to the classical quadruplet, the proposed new topology offers an extra coupling between two resonators, allowing this way the design of fourth order filters with two attenuation poles situated on the same side of the passband. A strongly asymmetric transfer… (More)
In this paper we introduce a new 3D planar parameterization algorithm. After presenting a brief overview of the state of the art, we introduce a new barycentric mapping method, based on the edge length ratio preservation. Our proposed approach demonstrate higher performances with respect to all main techniques developed so far in this direction, reducing… (More)
This article presents different electromagnetic irradiation scenarios of a heterogeneous human heart placed in the field emitted by a dipole antenna. An anatomical model of the human heart was proposed. Specific absorption rates were calculated using a numerical software based on the finite difference time domain method. Several positions and frequencies… (More)
