Design and simulation of passive reflectors to be used in 5G applications are presented. An optimization environment is constructed based on genetic algorithms (GAs) and a full-wave solver to obtain compact reflectors that possess various reflection characteristics in accordance with given design specifications. In addition to their triangulated models for simulations, reflectors are represented by Bezier surfaces on the optimization side to reach smooth designs that are suitable for fabrication. A multigrid approach is further used to increase the effectiveness of the optimization trials via a systematic deformation of surfaces from coarse shaping to fine tuning. The results demonstrate the feasibility of achieving diverse reflection characteristics with relatively compact reflectors, as well as the effectiveness of the proposed optimization strategy.

© 2019 IEEE.We present design, optimization, and simulation of effective nano-optical couplers to control power transmission in nanowire networks. The couplers consist of careful arrangements of nanoparticles that are designed in an optimization environment based on genetic algorithms and a full-wave solver. The nanowire segments are electrically isolated from each other, leading to more reconfigurable and adaptable systems. We show that, even in the absence of direct contacts between nanowires, high-perfor...
