A Novel Dual-band Metamaterial Structure

Ekmekci, E.
Turban-Sayan, G.
In this study, we propose a novel metamaterial structure having magnetic resonances at two different frequencies and hence providing negative effective permeability values over two separate bandwidths. The introduced metamaterial unit cell topology in this paper is made of a single loop of conducting strip printed over a dielectric substrate with a special winding geometry. Transmission and reflection spectra of this unit cell are simulated using the Ansoft's HFSS software to observe its resonance frequencies. Then, the effective permeability (mu(eff)) and effective permittivity (epsilon(eff)) curves are retrieved from the already computed complex S-parameters to demonstrate the presence of two distinct negative permeability bandwidths. The results clearly show that this novel structure can be a very useful alternative to the ordinary SRR and spiral resonator (SR) structures especially when a dual band operation is needed.


A Novel Left-Handed Metamaterial Based on Circular Resonator and Wire Strip for Waveguide Applications
Gunduz, Ozan T.; Sabah, Cumali (2014-07-10)
A new design of left-handed (LH) metamaterial (MTM) for waveguide applications is presented. The proposed structure is based on two identical circular ring resonators (CRRs) connected with a wire strip (WS). Simulation results show that the planar MTM has a LH resonance at around 10 GHz. Surface current and magnetic field distributions at the resonance are also examined to shown the LH behavior of the structure. In addition, a parametric study based on the gap size of the structure is also given in order to...
A New Multi-ring SRR Type Metamaterial Design with Multiple Magnetic Resonances
Turkmen, O.; Ekmekci, E.; Sayan, Gönül (2011-03-23)
In this study, we propose a new SRR unit cell design for multi-band metamaterial applications. The suggested unit cell structure consists of N number of concentric split rings to obtain magnetic resonances at N distinct frequencies. The value of each distinct resonance frequency can be adjusted by changing design parameters such as metal widths and gap distances for each ring as well as ring-to-ring separations. The suggested multi-band structure is simulated using CST Microwave Studio. Effective medium par...

This study investigates interference and beam squint aware analog beamformer design for massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems for spatial wideband beam division multiple access (BDMA) channels. Single carrier frequency domain equalization (SC-FDE) is employed in uplink frequency selective channels. We first design interference and beam squint aware (BSA) narrowband generalized eigenbeamformer (BSA NB GEB) based on a phase shifter (PS) network using slowly varying long-term channel statistics...

In this study, a fabrication method utilizing parylene bonding for gravimetric resonant based mass sensors is presented. First, parylene bonding was experimentally tested and compared with the literature. Average shear strength was measured as 16.3 MPa (sigma=3MPa). Then, resonators located on top of a microchannel for real-time detection were fabricated using the presented method. Simulations and experiments verify proper operation of the fabricated resonators, and the applicability of the method for fabri...
A New Phase Measurement Technique for RF Power Amplifier Only Measuring Magnitudes
Yuzer, A. H.; Demir, Şimşek (2010-07-08)
In this study, a new phase measurement setup to measure magnitudes and phases of the fundamental components and intermodulation created by an amplifier under two tone excitation is reported. There are three signal generators, one digital attenuator and one spectrum analyzer in the measurement setup. There is no need to any other special electronic circuits (e.g., mixer, filter, etc.). Phase is found/measured mathematically based on magnitude measurements. Also absolute phase difference between the frequency...
