In this paper, we present a wide band metasurface (MS) polarization converter which converts a linearly polarized signal to a right-handed or left-handed circularly polarized signal both numerically and experimentally. The unit cell of MS has three nested rectangular resonators which have two metallic patches at its crossed corners. The simulated and measured results are achieved by a commercial full wave EM simulator and a vector network analyzer with two horn antennas in microwave frequency regime. The S-parameters are obtained for co-polarized and cross-polarized responses and axial ratio is evaluated by the division of these two responses. The axial ratio is kept below 3 dB for efficient polarization converting activity. Correspondingly, axial ratio bandwidth of 800 MHz is obtained. The proposed MS can easily be fabricated and integrated into many desired applications by proper configurations depending on the application area and frequencies. The proposed MS has potential such as polarization converter with 0.75 efficiency in WiMAX frequency band, PMC-like treatment with a phase reflection around 0 degrees and reflection coefficient nearly unity at some frequency points. Beside this, the three nested rectangle MSs also provide opportunities to design low profile antennas with conversion characteristics.

In this study, we both numerically and experimentally present a metasurface (MS) polarization converter to transform linearly polarized signal into circularly polarized one. The unit cell consists of two rectangular metallic patches placed at the crossed corners of rectangularly arranged inclusions. The results of a full-wave Electromagnetic (EM) simulator are compared to those of free space measurement using two horn antenna at microwave frequency regime. For a linearly polarized antenna, the s-parameters ...
Design of dual polarized wideband microstrip antennas
Yıldırım, Meltem; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a wideband dual polarized microstrip antenna is designed, manufactured and measured. Slot coupled patch antenna structure is considered in order to achieve the wideband characteristic. Although rectangular shaped slot coupled patch antennas are widely used in most of the applications, their utilization in dual polarized antenna structures is not feasible due to space limitations regarding the positioning of two separate coupling slots for each polarization. For a rectangular slot, the parame...
Design of tunable impedance matching circuit for a GSM antenna
Öztürk, Mehmet Ali; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Koçer, Fatih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
In this thesis, automatic impedance matching circuits are designed by using several tuning approaches. A typical automatic impedance matching system compensates for the impedance variations of the antenna due to the human hand and head using an electronically tunable impedance matching circuitry. Maximum output power, the linearity and efficiency of PA can be improved using automatic impedance matching circuit units. There are various tunable impedance matching circuits proposed in the literature to enhance...
Out-of-band radiation and CFO immunity of potential 5G multicarrier modulation schemes
Üçüncü, Ali Bulut; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
In this study, generalized frequency division multiplexing (GFDM) and windowed cyclic prefix circular offset quadrature amplitude modulation (WCP-COQAM), which are candidate physical layer modulation schemes for the 5G systems, are compared to orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) in terms of out-of-band (OOB) radiation levels and carrier frequency offset (CFO) immunity. GFDM and WCP- COQAM are shown to be superior to OFDM with respect to OOB emissions in some studies in literature. However, we c...
Optimization of a Convex Rail Design for Electromagnetic Launchers
Polat, Hakan; Tosun, Nail; Ceylan, Doga; Keysan, Ozan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-06-01)
A rail geometry with a convex cross section instead of a rectangular one provides a higher contact area, uniform current density, and less transition on the contact surface, and it increases the performance in electromagnetic launchers. In addition, the design of convex rails should be considered together with armature structure, the distance between rails, rail length, and parasitic masses that all have an influence on the overall efficiency and armature/rail transition. A novel complete rail and launch pa...
