Comparative investigation of resonance characteristics and electrical size of the double sided SRR BC SRR and conventional SRR type metamaterials for varying substrate parameters

Sayan, Gönül
This paper introduces a planar µ-negative (MNG) metamaterial structure, called double-sided split ring resonator (DSRR), which combines the features of a conventional SRR and a broadside-coupled SRR (BC-SRR) to obtain much better miniaturization at microwave frequencies for a given physical cell size. In this study, electromagnetic transmission characteristics of DSRR, BC-SRR and conventional SRR are investigated in a comparative manner for varying values of substrate parameters which are thickness, the real part of relative permittivity and dielectric loss tangent. Simulation results have shown that magnetic resonance patterns of all these three structures are affected in a similar way from variations in permittivity and in loss tangent. However, changes in substrate thickness affect their resonance characteristics quite differently: In response to decreasing substrate thickness, resonance frequency of the SRR increases slowly while the bandwidth and the depth of its resonance curve do not change much. For the DSRR and BCSRR structures, on the other hand, resonance frequency, half power bandwidth and the depth of resonance curve strongly decrease with decreasing substrate thickness. Among these three structures, all having the same unit cell dimensions, the newly suggested DSRR is found to reach the lowest resonance frequency, hence the smallest electrical size, which is a highly desired property not only for more effective medium approximation but also for miniaturization in RF design. The BC-SRR, on the other hand, provides the largest resonance bandwidth which is almost three times of the resonance bandwidth of the SRR. The bandwidth of the DSRR approaches to that of the BC-SRR as the planar separation between its inner and outer rings increases.

Investigation of structural, electronic, magnetic and lattice dynamical properties for XCoBi (X: Ti, Zr, Hf) Half-Heusler compounds
Surucu, Gokhan; IŞIK, MEHMET; CANDAN, ABDULLAH; Wang, Xiaotian; Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin (Elsevier BV, 2020-06-15)
Structural, electronic, magnetic, mechanical and lattice dynamical properties of XCoBi (X: Ti, Zr, Hf) Half-Heusler compounds have been investigated according to density functional theory and generalized gradient approximation. Among alpha, beta and gamma structural phases, gamma-phase structure has been found as the most stability characteristics depending on the calculated formation enthalpies, energy-volume dependencies and Cauchy pressures. Energy-volume plots of possible magnetic orders of gamma-phase ...
Custom integrated circuit design for ultrasonic therapeutic CMUT array
Maadi, Mohammad; Bayram, Barış (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-04-01)
This paper presents the design of a highly flexible and programmable transmit beam-former ASIC using a high voltage (HV) 0.35 mu m CMOS technology to be flip-chip bonded to a 4 x 4 CMUT array for ultrasound therapeutic applications. However, proposed IC can be used as a transmitter circuitry in color Doppler 3D imaging applications. In our proposed chip, each CMUT element is provided by an 8-bit shift register, an 8-bit comparator, a one-shot circuit with adjustable pulse width, a programmable pulse train g...
Extension of forward-backward method with DFT-based acceleration algorithm for the efficient analysis of large periodic arrays with arbitrary boundaries
Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Chou, HT (Wiley, 2005-11-05)
An extension of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT)-based forward-backward algorithm is developed using the virtual-element approach to provide a fast and accurate analysis of electromagnetic radiation/scattering front electrically large, planar, periodic, finite (phased) arrays with arbitrary boundaries. Both the computational complexity and storage requirements of this approach are O(N-tot) (N-tot is the total number of unknowns). The numerical results for both printed and freestanding dipole array's wit...
The investigation of quantum efficiency constituents of InAs/AlSb/GaSb based N structure type-II SL photodetectors with InAlAs interface
We report on the optical properties of InAs/AlSb/GaSb based Type-II superlattice N-structure with p on n configuration. The detector structure is designed to operate in the mid wavelength infrared range with 50% cut-off wavelength of 4.88 mu m at 79 K. Electronic properties of N-structure such as heavy hole-light hole splitting energies are optimized by a first principles approach taking into account InAlAs interface bonding between InAs/AlSb layers. A responsivity of 1.13 A/Wat 3.2 mu m was measured under ...

Dundar, Canberk; Kara, Dogacan; Donmezer, Nazli (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-01-01)
To increase the reliability and the maximum performance of AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs), gate field plates are frequently used with surface passivation. Although significant research has been done to understand the electrical effects of gate field plates on devices, their thermal effects are still not fully understood. For this purpose, electrothermal simulations are performed on devices with and without gate field plates having different thicknesses of Si3N4 surface passivation at t...
