Free PArtificial Transmission Lines for RF and Microwave Applications
This book presents and discusses alternatives to ordinary transmission lines for designing and implementing advanced RF/microwave components in planar technology.
This book is devoted to the analysis, study, and applications of artificial transmission lines implemented mainly using a host line conveniently modified (e.g., with modulation of transverse dimensions, with etched patterns in the metallic layers, etc.) or with reactive loading, to achieve novel device functionalities, superior performance, and/or reduced size.
The author begins with an introductory chapter dedicated to the fundamentals of planar transmission lines.
Chapter 2 focuses on artificial transmission lines based on periodic structures (including non-uniform and reactively-loaded sequences) and provides a comprehensive analysis of the coupled mode theory.
Chapters 3 and 4 are dedicated to artificial transmission lines inspired by metamaterials, or based on metamaterial concepts. These chapters include the main practical implementations of such lines, their circuit models, and a wide overview of their RF/microwave applications (including passive and active circuits and antennas).
Chapter 5 focuses on reconfigurable devices based on tunable artificial lines and non-linear transmission lines. The chapter also introduces several materials and components for tuning, including diode varactors, RF-MEMS, ferroelectrics, and liquid crystals.
Finally, Chapter 6 covers other advanced transmission lines and wave-guiding structures, such as electroconductive-/magnetoinductive-wave lines, common-mode suppressed balanced lines, lattice-network artificial lines, and substrate-integrated waveguides.
Artificial Transmission Lines for RF and Microwave Applications provide in-depth analysis and discussion of artificial transmission lines, including design guidelines that can be useful to researchers, engineers, and students.
