A new metamaterial topology, called triangular-shaped single-loop resonator (SLR), is introduced with two distinct mu-negative (MNG) regions and one epsilon-negative (ENG) region over the S/C frequency bands. Transmission and reflection characteristics of the suggested subwavelength resonator are analyzed using full-wave electromagnetic solvers, Ansoft HFSS and CST Microwave Studio (MWS), to demonstrate the presence of four closely located resonance frequencies within the 3.3-5.1 GHz range. Effective permittivity and permeability parameters of the resulting composite medium are retrieved from simulated complex scattering parameters to verify the existence of fully developed MENG and ENG regions. Dependence of the resonance frequencies on the design parameters of the triangular SLR unit cell and on the presence of its gaps are also investigated in detail.


Nested U-ring resonators: a novel multi-band metamaterial design in microwave region
Turkmen, O.; EKMEKÇİ, Evren; Sayan, Gönül (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2012-07-17)
In this study, a novel metamaterial topology, called M-band nested U-ring resonator (M-NURR), is proposed to provide multiple band operation with an electrically small and geometrically simple unit cell design. The M-NURR unit cell has M-nested and unconnected U-shaped metal rings printed on a dielectric substrate where each ring is primarily associated with a distinct LC type resonance frequency where L and C stand for inductance and capacitance, respectively. Therefore this M-NURR topology has the novel p...
Circumferential Traveling Wave Slot Array on Cylindrical Substrate Integrated Waveguide (CSIW)
Bayraktar, Omer; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-07-01)
Traveling wave slot array on cylindrical substrate integrated waveguide (CSIW) is designed, fabricated and measured at K-band. CSIW is formed by wrapping the substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) around the cylinder in the circumferential direction. 16 element longitudinal slot array on the broad wall of single CSIW is designed by the Elliot's design procedure. The spacings between the slot elements are determined to reduce the half power beam width (HPBW) and to obtain good matching at 25 GHz. A 4 x 16 slot...
Triple stub circuit topology as simultaneous insertion phase, amplitude and impedance control circuit for phased array applications
Unlu, M.; Demir, Şimşek; Akın, Tayfun (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2012-10-23)
This study shows that the well-known triple stub circuit topology can also be used for controlling the insertion phase and amplitude of a given signal simultaneously, as well as preserving its impedance transformation ability. The triple stub circuit topology, which is nothing but an extension of the conventional double stub loaded-line phase shifter, results in one more degree of freedom to its solution when it is solved for its insertion phase. This additional degree of freedom not only brings the impedan...
Active clamped ZVS forward converter with soft-switched synchronous rectifier for high efficiency, low output voltage applications
Acik, A; Cadirci, I (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2003-03-01)
The analysis, design, and implementation of an active clamped ZVS forward converter equipped with a soft-switched synchronous rectifier (ACFC-SR), proposed for high-efficiency low output voltage DC-DC converter applications, is presented. The converter efficiency is maximised due to soft switching of the main, active clamp, synchronous rectifier, and freewheeling MOSFET switches. The operating principles of the ACFC-SR are analysed in detail, and the converter performance is compared with that of alternativ...
Hybrid connection of RF MEMS and SMT components in an impedance tuner
Unlu, Mehmet; Topalli, Kagan; Atasoy, Halil Ibrahim; Demir, Şimşek; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Akın, Tayfun (Elsevier BV, 2010-01-01)
This paper presents a systematic construction of a model for a hybrid connected RF MEMS and SMT components in a reconfigurable impedance tuner. The double stub hybrid impedance tuner which employs a high number of MEMS switches is selected to demonstrate the feasibility of the connections. In the hybrid tuner, MEMS switches are actuated with DC bias signals, where SMT resistors de-couple RF from the DC lines. The hybrid tuner is realized in two steps, where the MEMS impedance tuner is fabricated on a glass ...
