    Graded Dielectric Inhomogeneous Planar Layer Radome for Aerospace Applications

    Raveendranath U. Nair, Preethi D.S, R. M. Jha

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.40, No.2, pp. 131-144, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.040.131

    Abstract Controllable artificial dielectrics are used in the design of radomes to enhance their electromagnetic (EM) performance. The fabrication of such radome wall structures with controllable dielectric parameters seems to be an arduous task. Further even minor fluctuations of dielectric properties of radome wall due to fabrication uncertainties tend to result in drastic degradation of radome performance parameters. In the present work, a novel inhomogeneous radome with graded variation of dielectric parameters is proposed which limits the constraints on fabrication and facilitates excellent EM performance characteristics. This radome wall consists of five dielectric layers cascaded such More >

    Some Applications of Metamaterial Resonators Based on Symmetry Properties

    J. Naqui1, F. Martín1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.3, pp. 267-288, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.267

    Abstract Metamaterial resonators are electrically small resonant particles useful for the implementation of effective media metamaterials. In this paper, some applications of metamaterial resonators (such as the split ring resonator -SRR-, the complementary split ring resonator -CSRR-, the folded stepped impedance resonator -SIR-, and the electric LC resonator), that exploit the symmetry properties of transmission lines loaded with such symmetric particles, are reviewed. This covers differential (balanced) lines with common mode suppression, linear and angular displacement sensors (including alignment sensors), angular velocity sensors, and radiofrequency barcodes. Advantages and drawbacks as compared to existing implementations are also More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.3, pp. 217-230, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.217

    Abstract The EM analysis of multi-layered metamaterial based radar absorbing structure (RAS) with dual-band characteristics in millimeter wave frequency regime has been carried out in this paper using transmission line transfer matrix (TLTM) method for TE and TM polarizations. The proposed metamaterial-based RAS exhibits dual-band characteristics at centre frequencies 120 GHz and 175 GHz with very low power reflection. It absorbs more than 90% power of incidence wave over the frequency range from 111-131 GHz at first resonance and from 164.5-185 GHz at second resonance without metal backing plate, which is desirable for stealth applications.

    Emerging Trends in Terahertz Metamaterial Applications

    Balamati Choudhury1, Sanjana Bisoyi1, Pavani Vijay Reddy1, Manjula S.1 and R. M. Jha1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.3, pp. 179-215, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.179

    Abstract The terahertz spectrum of electromagnetic waves is finding its position in various applications of day to day life because of its unique properties, including the penetration through opaque materials. Naturally occurring materials in this range are rare due to the display of a natural breakpoint of both electric, and magnetic resonances in these materials. However recent advances in artificially engineered materials, which show resonance in this region are able to harness desirable properties in the terahertz region. In this paper, terahertz design and fabrication issues have been explored along with their applications. A brief review More >

    Soft Computing for Terahertz Metamaterial Absorber Design for Biomedical Application

    Balamati Choudhury1, Pavani Vijay Reddy1, Sanjana Bisoyi1, R. M. Jha1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.37, No.3, pp. 135-146, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.037.135

    Abstract The terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum plays a vital role in biomedical imaging because of its sensitivity to vibrational modes of biomolecules. Advances in broadband terahertz imaging have been emerging in the field of biomedical spectroscopy. Biomedical imaging is used to distinguish between the infected (cancer) and the non-infected tissue, which requires broad band and highly efficient radar absorbing material (RAM) designs (to obtain high resolution image of the tissue). In this paper, a metamaterial broadband RAM design is proposed towards biomedical spectroscopy applications in the THz region. The particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm More >

    A Novel Metamaterial FSS-based Structure for Wideband Radome Applications

    Shiv Narayan1, R M Jha1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.37, No.2, pp. 97-108, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.037.097

    Abstract A novel metamaterial based FSS (frequency selective surfaces) structure is presented in this paper for wideband airborne radome applications. The proposed metamaterial-FSS structure consists of three layers, where a DPS (double positive sign) layer is sandwiched between a MNG (μ-negative) and ENG (ε- negative) layer, exhibits very good bandpass characteristics inside the operational band along with excellent roll-off characteristics outside the band. The EM performance analysis of the proposed structure has been carried out using transmission line transfer matrix (TLTM) method, which shows excellent bandpass characteristics over a wide frequency range. The transmission efficiency is More >

    Application of the Method of Fundamental Solutions and the Generalized Lagally Theorem to the Interaction of Solid Body and External Singularities in An Inviscid Fluid

    C. T. Wu1, F.-L. Yang2, D. L. Young3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.23, No.2, pp. 135-154, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.023.135

    Abstract This paper proposes a method that can calculate the hydrodynamic force of a non-circular object in an inviscid, irrotational, and incompressible flow with the presence of external flow singularities. In order to handle irregular object, the method of fundamental solutions (MFS) is employed to numerically construct the singularity system that describes the body and the flow motion and meets the boundary condition. The obtained singularity system is then integrated into the generalized Lagally theorem to compute the instantaneous hydrodynamic force via algebraic calculations and to describe the unsteady interaction of the object and its ambient… More >
