In this work numerical simulation and measurements of three-dimensional radiation patterns of a mobile handset model in the presence of a human head phantom were performed at 1800 MHz. Based on theoretical and experimental results, the influence of the human head on the radiation efficiency of the handset has been investigated as a function of the handset(More)
This paper provides a comprehensive analytical framework to assess the relative bit-error-rate (BER) performance of companding transforms (CTs) employed to reduce the peak-to-average-power ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. This paper provides a quantitative basis for several claims, which are reported in the(More)
In this paper we investigate the use of an epoxy bonded ferrimagnetic compound, Yttrium Iron Garnet (YIG), as a substrate of a patch antenna operating in Ku band. We investigate its influence on the antenna's polarization properties under the application of an external magnetic field. It is proved that the axial ratio and also the sense and the tilt of the(More)
In this paper we introduce the incorporation of magneto-electric materials into antenna design and the potential of controlling the behavior of the antenna by means of an external magnetic field. After an intensive study of magneto-electric material properties, a ferrimagnetic compound called Yttrium Iron Garnet (YIG) was found to be the best candidate for(More)
In this paper we investigate the influence of dielectric and magnetic losses of an Epoxy bonded Yttrium Iron Garnet (YIG-Epoxy) composite substrate on the performance of a reconfigurable microstrip patch antenna. The antenna under investigation is a microstrip patch antenna printed on a 60/40 w/w% YIG-Epoxy composite substrate and controlled by an(More)
