Just one hundred years ago, J.C. Bose described to the Royal Institution in London his research carried out in Calcutta at millimeter wavelengths. He used waveguides, horn antennas, dielectric lenses, various polarizers and even semiconductors at frequencies as high as 60 GHz. Some concepts from his original 1897 papers have been incorporated into a new 1.3-mm multi-beam receiver now in use on the NRAO 12 Meter Telescope. 
Dielectric Lens Antennas for Millimetre Wave Communications
This document presents a brief overview of the work that is being developed at Instituto de Telecomunicações for more than one decade on dielectric lens antennas for millimeter wave applications,
Imaging Through the Atmosphere at Terahertz Frequencies
There has been significant recent interest in the application of millimeter wave (MMW), sub-MMW, and THz technology to develop imaging systems that can "see" though either adverse weather
Analysis of Pyramidal Horn Antenna for J-Band Application
In this research paper, design and development of pyramidal horn antenna for J-band application is reported. It is particularly designed for 17 dB gain and half beam width about 25 degrees at 6.93
Short-Range SAR Imaging From GHz to THz Waves
An overview of electronics-based imaging using the SAR technique for the frequency spectrum ranging from GHz to THz with the focus on NDT and high-resolution imaging is presented.
Chirality and metamaterials
Electromagnetic metamaterials are artificial media that derive novel properties from periodic structuring on the sub-wavelength scale. Here, the consequences of two-dimensional (2D) and
Impact of low intensity millimetre waves on cell functions
A series of experiments are presented which show changes in cell membrane potential and the action potential firing rate of cortical neurons under short (1 min) exposures to continuous-wave 60 GHz radiation at µW/cm2 power levels, more than 1000 times below the US government maximum permissible exposure.
Antenna-on-Chip and Antenna-in-Package Solutions to Highly Integrated Millimeter-Wave Devices for Wireless Communications
Antenna-on-chip (AoC) and antenna-in-package (AiP) solutions are studied for highly integrated millimeter-wave (mmWave) devices in wireless communications and the systems level pros and cons are highlighted from the electrical and economic perspectives for system designers.
Theoretical Studies of Optical Metamaterials
Optical metamaterials are artificial media that exhibit new properties from structuring on the nanometric scale. One of the main researches in metamaterials investigates materials with negative
Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic for System-in-Package Applications at 122 GHz
This dissertation presents two fully-integrated 122 GHz radar System-inPackages (SiPs) in Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic (LTCC) technology. In both SiPs, an active radar chip is integrated with
Design and analysis of pyramidal Horn antenna
This paper discusses the design of a pyramidal horn antenna with high gain, suppressed side lobes. The horn antenna is widely used in the transmission and reception of RF microwave signals. Horn


Microwave Antenna and Waveguide Techniques before 1900
Between the years 1888, when Hertz first launched electromagnetic radiation in the radio spectrum, and 1900, when Marconi was successfully establishing communication by radio, the scientific

Two years ago (May 9, 1895) we drew attention to two memoirs by Prof. Righi, who in 1893 succeeded in producing and investigating the behaviour of Hertzian waves only a few centimetres in length. He
History of Semiconductor Research
This paper presents a running story of semiconductor research from its earliest beginnings up to the present day, with special emphasis on the inception of new ideas and the resolution of older
