A metamaterial (MTM) absorber-based multifunctional sensor is numerically and experimentally realized using meander-line resonators. The proposed sensor device can be used to measure pressure, density, and humidity with perfect signal absorption characteristics at the frequency range of X band. The structure consists of a sensor layer sandwiched between two dielectric slabs. The sensor layer is used to detect unknown environmental parameters with respect to the electromagnetic responses of the material under test. A meander-line type resonator is chosen to achieve highly efficient electrical response at the related frequency range. It is well known that an MTM can be efficiently used for sensing purposes in a microwave regime if the absorption characteristic is approximately linear over the certain frequency band. The proposed model is numerically analyzed for pressure, density, and humidity sensing applications. In addition, the experimental study is carried out to prove the sensing ability of the suggested structure in the case of the density sensing application. The meander-line-based MTM absorber can be used in many application areas, such as the agriculture, medical, and defense industries. (C) 2017 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE)

Ozbey, Burak; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Kurç, Özgür; ALTINTAŞ, AYHAN; DEMİR, Hilmi Volkan (2016-11-01)
In this paper, simultaneous multi-point wireless sensing is proposed and demonstrated via multiple sensors in nested split-ring resonator (NSRR) geometry coupled to a single illuminator antenna. In this passive multi-point sensing system, each probe in the sensor array is assigned a non-overlapping spectral interval for frequency shift in response to local mechanical loading around a unique operating resonance frequency in the band of the antenna. Here, it is shown that the antenna is capable of capturing t...

This paper presents the design, fabrication, characterization and experimental verification of a perfect Multi-Band Metamaterial (MTM) absorber (MA) based on a simple configuration of a rectangular resonator and strips operating in microwave frequency regime. The proposed multi-band MA provides perfect absorption with TE-incident angle independency. Maximum absorption rate is achieved as 99.43% at 5.19 GHz for simulation and 98.67% at 5.19 GHz for experiment, respectively. The measurement results of the fab...

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...
