  • A Compact Self-Isolated MIMO Antenna System for 5G Mobile Terminals
  • Abstract A compact self-isolated Multi Input Multi Output (MIMO) antenna array is presented for 5G mobile phone devices. The proposed antenna system is operating at the 3.5 GHz band (3400–3600 MHz) and consists of eight antenna elements placed along two side edges of a mobile device, which meets the current trend requirements of full-screen smartphone devices. Each antenna element is divided into two parts, a front part and back part. The front part consists of an I-shaped feeding line and a modified Hilbert fractal monopole antenna, whereas the back part is an L-shaped element shorted to the system ground by a… More

  • Novel Design of UWB Jeans Based Textile Antenna for Body-Centric Communications
  • Abstract This research presents an ultra-wideband (UWB) textile antenna design for body-centric applications. The antenna is printed on a 1 mm thick denim substrate with a 1.7 relative permittivity. The jeans substrate is sandwiched between a partial ground plane and a radiating patch with a Q-shaped slot. The slotted radiating patch is placed above the substrate and measures 27.8 mm × 23.8 mm. In free space, the antenna covers the ultra-wideband spectrum designated by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Various parameters of the antenna design were changed for further performance evaluation. Depending on the operating frequency, the antenna's realized gain varied from 2.7 to 5 dB. The… More

  • Efficient User Pairing for Performance Enhancement of Downlink NOMA Systems
  • Abstract In this paper, the resource allocation problem for user pairing (UP) in downlink non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) systems is investigated. NOMA allows the use of one subcarrier for more than one user at the same time, thus increases the total capacity of the wireless communication system. However, users pairing is a challenging task in the NOMA systems, because a good channel quality subcarrier should be selected and allocated for the user to enhance the performance of NOMA systems. The proposed UP algorithm aims to enhance the sum rate of the paired users per subcarrier and consequently enhance the total sum… More

  • Design of Miniature UWB-Based Antenna by Employing a Tri-Sectional SIR Feeder
  • Abstract A novel ultra-wideband (UWB)-based microstrip antenna is presented in this work by using a slotted patch resonator, a tri-sectional stepped impedance resonator (SIR) feeder, as well as a reduced ground plane. The whole structure was realized on an FR4 substrate. The impact of incorporating several cases of ground planes on the input reflection has been thoroughly investigated under the same tri-sectional SIR feeder and by employing a slotted patch radiator. Since the complete ground plane presents an inadequate frequency response, by reducing the ground plane, the induced UWB responses are apparent while the antenna exhibits higher impedance bandwidth. The impact… More

  • COVID-19 Automatic Detection Using Deep Learning
  • Abstract The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a pandemic disease that is currently affecting over 200 countries around the world and impacting billions of people. The first step to mitigate and control its spread is to identify and isolate the infected people. But, because of the lack of reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-CPR) tests, it is important to discover suspected COVID-19 cases as early as possible, such as by scan analysis and chest X-ray by radiologists. However, chest X-ray analysis is relatively time-consuming since it requires more than 15 minutes per case. In this paper, an automated novel detection… More
