Abstract

This session presents new components, structures, and techniques for various microwave applications. One structure is a new type of metasurface that offers broadband polarization conversion for an incident plane wave. Another contribution is a novel design of a microwave circulator that is based on coupled CRLH lines on a ferrite substrate. A new type of slow wave structure based on nanowires that are incorporated into a substrate is presented. The session also presents an insightful examination of the reactive and radiative regimes for a leaky-wave antenna, and discusses a new way to use leaky-wave antennas for beam scanning.

The session discusses the advances and challenges in synthesizing filter responses using micro-machined resonators in either the acoustic or electromagnetic domain. On the lower frequency end, acoustics resonators are arranged to produce reconfigurable or switchable responses. Towards higher frequencies, novel micro-machined chip-scale electromagnetic resonators are exploited to produce W-band filters. Suppression of unwanted acoustic resonance in an electromagnetic structure will also be discussed.

Abstract

This session features a variety of innovative planar filters using substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) and microstrip technologies. The first paper presents a compact, quasi-absorptive SIW filter using capacitively-loaded resonators. The second paper describes a compact, dual-mode SIW filter using uniform impedance resonators. Third, a compact bandpass filter using substrate integrated defected ground structure (SIDGS) is described that achieves a very wide stopband response. Next, stepped impedance resonators (SIR) and complementary split ring resonators (CSRR) are combined to create filters with high selectivity. The last paper presents a balanced bandpass filter using coupled lines to produce a quasi-elliptic bandpass and ultra-wide stopband response.

Abstract

Load modulation based power amplifiers have been the workhorses in wireless networks for more than two decades. In this session, load modulation techniques are further enhanced, for their RF bandwidth, through the use of balanced structures and inverted DPA topologies. In addition, Doherty efficiency is further improved in power back-off by means of digitally controlled signal injection. 5G MIMO base stations needs are addressed including DPA miniaturization through MMIC integration, as well as, the capability to handle large video bandwidths.

Dr. Robert J. Trew: DECEMBER 8, 1944 - FEBRUARY 24, 2019

This session attempts to capture the career and life of Dr. Robert Trew as an engineer, educator, scientist, society leader, government official, hero of the U.S. Army Research Office, musician, photographer, and above all husband and father.

Bob received his Bachelor of Electrical Engineering from Kettering University in 1968, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan in 1969 and 1975.

Bob was the Alton and Mildred Lancaster Distinguished Professor (Emeritus) and former head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in NC State’s College of Engineering. He was a department head for a collective 11 years at three major research universities: Case Western Reserve University, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and NC State University. 

On the government side, Bob served as a program manager at the Army Research Office, Director of Research for the Office of the Secretary of Defense at the U.S. Department of Defense, and Director of the Division of the Electrical, Communications and Cyber Systems at the National Science Foundation. 

As a scientist, Bob made important contributions to research on semiconductor devices and microwave computer-aided design. He was a highly regarded mentor and leader. His accomplishments are well recognized within MTT-S and were acknowledged by granting him the Pioneer Award and the Career Award.

Bob served as the President of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society in 2004.

Abstract

This late-breaking news session presents breakthroughs in the development of millimeter-wave systems. First, a dual-polarization, dual beam small cell is presented for 5GNR operation at 28 GHz. Next, the digital predistortion of a large-scale phased array realizes high-rate, low-EVM communication. Next, scalable dual-band and 2D radar systems are demonstrated for operation over 100 GHz. Finally, an optoelectronic frequency synthesizer with extremely low phase noise is shown based on locking to an optical source.

Abstract

This late-breaking news session reports breakthrough experimental results on III-V millimeter-wave PAs and LNAs. A high-power broadband (2-20 GHz) amplifier is demonstrated in a GaN process. Record high efficiency results for InP HBT-based power amplifiers are presented. Finally, a low-power, cryogenic InP HEMT LNA is presented that offers adjustable gain/noise figure based on power consumption.
