  1. 1. Micromachined Gap Waveguide Devices

    Author : Sofia Rahiminejad; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEMS; Gap waveguides; RF; High frequency; GHz; Waveguide;

    Abstract : Gap waveguide technology is a new technology that is well suited for millimeter and submillimeter applications. Compared to conventional rectangular waveguides, this technology does not need any solid conductive walls to confine the wave by utilizing metamaterial surfaces such as "bed of nails" that creates an artificial magnetic conductive surface (AMC).

  2. 2. Technology and properties of InP-based photonic crystal structures and devices

    Author : Naeem Shahid; Srinivasan Anand; Rob W. vad der Heijden; KTH; []
    Keywords : Integrated optics materials; Photonic crystals; Planar waveguides; Dispersion; Band-gap; Mode-gap; mini-stopband; InP; Nanostructure fabrication; dry etching; mass transport; material reflow; reliability; SRA - ICT; SRA - Informations- och kommunikationsteknik;

    Abstract : Photonic crystals (PhCs) are periodic dielectric structures that exhibit a photonic band gap; a range of wavelengths for which light propagation is forbidden. 2D PhCs exhibit most of the properties as their three dimension counterparts with a compatibility with standard semiconductor processing techniques such as epitaxial growth, electron beam lithography, Plasma deposition/etching and electromechanical lapping/polishing.

  3. 3. Gap Waveguide Technology for Millimeter Wave Applications and Integration with Antennas

    Author : Elena Pucci; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Array Antennas.; Microstrip Lines; Micromachining; Artificial Magnetic Conductors; Millimeter Waves; Waveguide Resonators; Packaging of Microwave Components; Gap Waveguides; Losses;

    Abstract : The increasing advance of short range wireless communications requiring high data rates and the lack of available spectrum have driven researchers and industry to move towards higher frequencies, in particular to the millimeter wave range. The opening of this wide portion of free spectrum has risen a large interest in developing mm-wave communication systems for commercial applications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gap Waveguide Technology- Electromagnetic Packaging and Transitions

    Author : Astrid Algaba Brazalez; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rectangular waveguide; packaging; transition; coplanar waveguide; microstrip; millimeter waves; gap waveguide; perfect magnetic conductor;

    Abstract : The scarcity of available frequency bands for new wireless communication systems, as well as the growing need for higher capacity, motivates the current interest in moving upwards in frequency. The millimeter wave frequencyrange is very attractive to allocate potential commercial opportunities such as short range wireless communications that allow high-speed data/video transmission, and automotive radars for both driver assistance and increasedsafety.

  5. 5. Gap waveguide for packaging microstrip filters & investigation of transitions from planar technologies to ridge gap waveguide

    Author : Astrid Algaba Brazalez; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; parallel plate mode; coupled line filter; microstrip circuit; packaging; Artificial magnetic conductor AMC ; perfect magnetic conductor PMC ; gap waveguide; transition.; coplanar waveguide CPW ;

    Abstract : Gap waveguide technology has proved to constitute an effective alternative for the design of microwave passive components, due to its advantages with respect to traditional planar technologies and standard waveguides. There is no requirement for conductive contact between the two different metal pieces making up a gap waveguide prototype, since one of these pieces makes use of a textured surface that eliminates any possible leakage of the field through the gap to the surface of the other metal piece above it.
