Metamaterials and Plasmonics to Tailor and Enhance Wave-Matter Interactions

Metamaterials and plasmonics offer unprecedented opportunities to tailor and enhance the interaction of waves with matter. In this lecture, I will discuss our recent progress and research activity in these research areas, showing how suitably tailored meta-atoms and combinations of them can open new venues to manipulate and control electromagnetic waves in unprecedented ways. I will discuss our recent theoretical and experimental results involving metamaterial and/or plasmonic nanostructures, including the concept of magnetic-based Fano resonances in nanoclusters, modularized optical nanocircuits, nanoantennas and metasurfaces to control light propagation and radiation, enhanced artificial magnetism and chirality in properly tailored metamaterials, parity-time symmetric metamaterials, giant nonlinearities and nonreciprocity using suitably designed meta-atoms. Physical insights into these exotic phenomena and their impact on technology and new electromagnetic devices will be discussed during the talk.

New IEEE Standard Terms and Figures of Merit for Active Antenna Arrays

Active multi-antenna systems and antenna arrays are of great interest currently for applications such as high-sensitivity astronomical aperture phased arrays and phased array feeds, multiple input multiple output (MIMO) communications systems, digitally beamformed arrays, steered beam antennas for passive remote sensing, and arrays for mobile, airborne, and maritime satellite communications. The standard definitions for gain, radiation efficiency, antenna efficiency, and noise temperature are directly applicable only to receiving antennas that can be operated as transmitters. For active receiving arrays with complex receiver chains, nonreciprocal components in the beamforming network, or digitally sampled and processed output signals, existing transmit-based antenna terms such as gain and radiation efficiency cannot be directly applied. Using the reciprocity principle to obtain an equivalence between the total power radiated by a transmitting antenna and the noise power at the output of a receiving antenna, a new set of figures of merit has been developed for active array receivers.

Low-Cost Smart Antennas

Smart antennas are the key technology for wireless communications and radars. They can adjust their radiation patterns adaptively, i.e., forming maximum radiation towards the desired users and nulls towards the interference sources. Thus, they can improve the capacity of wireless communication networks significantly, increase the spectrum efficiency and reduce the transmit power. Traditionally, smart antennas are, however, too complicated, bulky, heavy and expensive for civil applications. For commercial applications, it is very important to reduce the cost, size, mass and power consumption of smart antennas.

Metamaterials: Past, Present and Future

In the history of humanity, scientific progress has frequently been associated with the discovery of novel substances or materials. Metamaterials represent a recent incarnation of this evolution. As suggested by their prefix “meta”, meaning “beyond” in Greek, metamaterials (artificial materials owing their properties to sub-wavelength but supra-atomic scatterers) even transcend the frontiers of nature, to offer unprecedented properties with far-reaching implications in modern science and technology.

Multiscale Computational Electromagnetics and Applications

Electromagnetic sensing and system-level design problems are often multiscale and very challenging to solve. They remain a significant barrier to system-level sensing and design optimization for a foreseeable future.  Such multiscale problems often contain three electrical scales, i.e., the fine scale (geometrical feature size much smaller than a wavelength), the coarse scale (geometrical feature size greater than a wavelength), and the intermediate scale between the two extremes.  Most existing commercial solvers are based on single methodologies (such as finite element method or finite-difference time-domain method), and are unable to solve large multiscale problems. We will present our recent work in solving realistic multiscale system-level EM design simulation problems in time domain. The discontinuous Galerkin method is used as the fundamental framework for interfacing multiple scales with finite-element method, spectral element method, and finite difference method. Numerical results show significant advantages of the multiscale method.

Using Model-Based Parameter Estimation to Increase the Efficiency and Effectiveness of Computational Electromagnetics

Science began, and largely remains, an activity of making observations and/or collecting data about various phenomena in which patterns may be perceived and for which a theoretical explanation is sought in the form of mathematical prescriptions. These prescriptions may be non-parametric, first-principles generating models (GMs), such as Maxwell’s equations, that represent fundamental, irreducible descriptions of the physical basis for the associated phenomena. In a similar fashion, parametric fitting models (FMs) might be available to provide a reduced-order description of various aspects of the GM or observables that are derived from it. The purpose of this lecture is to summarize the development and application of exponential series and pole series as FMs in electromagnetics. The specific approaches described here, while known by various names, incorporate a common underlying procedure that is called model-based parameter estimation (MBPE).

Dielectric Resonator Antennas Abstract The dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) is made from high dielectric constant materials and mounted on a ground plane or on a grounded dielectric substrate of lower permittivity.  DRAs have many attractive features such as small size, high radiation efficiency, wide bandwidth, and high power capability that make them attractive for radar applications and base stations.  An overview for the development of the dielectric resonator antennas will be given to provide understanding of dielectric resonator characteristics, operation, and design.  DRA arrays characteristics are provided with discussion on the mutual coupling level and the wide scanning capabilities. Finally, several examples of DRA for wideband, multifunction applications, and proposed new application of embedded DRA in energy harvesting environments.
