Abstract

This session presents various effects, phenomena, and modeling techniques. Modeling techniques include an approach for the numerical analysis of inhomogeneous waveguides with anisotropy, and an extension of the planar circuit segmentation method. In the area of propagation, a planar transmission line with enhanced nonreciprocity is presented, and another study is given on exciting Zenneck-wave-like fields on the surface of the earth or ocean. In the scattering area, a novel metasurface is introduced that retro-reflects a circularly polarized wave back to the source, and one more paper experimentally verifies an active cloak that hides a metallic object.

Abstract

The session focuses on advanced behavioral and statistical device characterization and modeling procedures. The first two papers are devoted to optimized behavioral model extractions starting from device load-pull characterization. The other two contributions deal with the statistical modeling of devices as a result of parametric process variations via X-parameter and large-signal models.

Abstract

Nanoscale devices for RF to THz applications are presented. Ferro-magnetic resonance frequency studies are performed using magnetic nano-wires. A black phosphorus MOSFET is fabricated and characterized for good high frequency performance. A high yield fabrication procedure is discussed for use at 220 GHz. The use of quantum capacitance in graphene is explored for parametric amplifiers and down converters. Inverted scanning microwave microscopy is studied for nanometer-scale imaging in platinum diselenide. Magnetic nano-particles are used for developing a compact band-stop filter.
