Maximizing the Gap Height in Gap-Waveguides with Helical Wires Operating at the Vicinity of Resonance

Walid Dyab, Mourad Ibrahim, Ahmed Sakr and Ke WuPublished in: IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques ( Volume: 71, Issue: 4, April 2023) DOI: 10.1109/TMTT.2022.3223082 Abstract: Gap-waveguides made of bed-of-nails are revisited with special interest given to the maximum practically achievable gap height. In the cases where the gap height is to be maximized, it is important to have […]

Lateral and Rotational Misalignment Tolerance in Separated Gap Waveguides made of Periodic Bed-of-Nails

Various forms of misalignment in separated gap waveguides made of periodic bed-of-nails are investigated numerically. Separated gap waveguides which are suitable for wireless power transfer applications are considered in this analysis. Two equivalent problems using perfect magnetic conductor boundaries are derived from the original problem with the periodic structure. The two equivalent problems are validated […]

Radiation and Scattering from Bodies Coated with Metamaterials by GPU: Electromagnetic Forward and Inverse Scattering Problems by Graphical Processing Unit:

The electromagnetic scattering from bodies coated with metamaterials by using Finite Difference Frequency-Domain (FDFD). A formulation for the FDFD method is presented. A hybrid technique from FDFD and Particle Swarm Optimization technique (PSO) is used to reconstruct both the shape and the relative permittivity of a homogenous dielectric cylinder. The dielectric constants of materials in […]
