CAD for Biased and Self-Biased Magnetic Nonreciprocal Devices
This talk will introduce a design-based analysis method for biased and self-biased nonreciprocal devices implemented with ferrites or magnetic nanowires with built-in magnetization. Device examples that cover applications from C- to X-band will be presented. We will focus on design methods that include both static non-uniform DC magnetic field analysis and full-wave carrier frequency simulations using commercially available software. Various designs will be compared in terms of bandwidth, frequency selectivity, insertion loss and isolation. Experimental data will also be shown as proof-of-concept demonstrators.
