High Data Rate Modulation Issues in Millimeter-Wave Metamaterials

Franson, Steven January 2007 (has links)
This dissertation examines the use of metamaterial structures in millimeter-wave communication systems. Metamaterials, which are composite structures that have electromagnetic properties not found in nature, have been an area of explosive growth in academic research, including applications such as electrically small antennas, sub-wavelength imaging, and negative phase velocity transmission lines. In this dissertation, several potential applications of metamaterials are investigated, including new ideas related to negative forces. The design of highly directive antennas and their use in high data rate communication systems are emphasized. At millimeter-wave frequencies, specifically in a frequency band around 60 GHz, there is an enormous amount of available unlicensed worldwide spectrum available for data transmission. These systems may benefit from the knowledge of metamaterials and their integration with antenna systems. Although there are many challenges with working at such high frequencies and the metamaterials themselves are inherently dispersive and lossy, it will be demonstrated that useful structures can be designed and fabricated at these frequencies. Metamaterial-based artificial magnetic conductors were designed and it has been shown that they can handle 'gigabit per second' data rates. Moreover, superstrate structures were also designed to achieve near zero-index of refraction properties and, as a result, highly directive 60 GHz antenna systems. These metamaterial superstrate-based patch antennas were built and tested successfully with actual 'gigabit per second' data rates. Design and practical fabrication challenges associated with these millimeter-wave applications were addressed and will be reviewed.

Millimeter-wavelength spectral line surveys of evolved circumstellar envelopes

Chau, Wayne C, 周穎鏘 January 2013 (has links)
Evolved stars including asymptotic giant branch stars, proto-planetary nebulae and planetary nebulae are well known to be sources of molecules for the interstellar medium. Circumstellar envelopes of asymptotic giant branch stars are known to be sites of active molecular synthesis. These molecular species are then distributed to the interstellar medium as the envelope is gradually ejected in the proto-planetary nebula and planetary nebula phases. As carbon that is dredged-up from the stellar core by convectional instabilities facilitates rapid formation and reprocessing of molecules, the chemical abundances differ significantly between objects at different stages of stellar evolution. Changes in the physical conditions in the envelope also allow different chemical processes to take place throughout the evolutionary sequence. Conducting spectral line surveys on a large sample of objects at different stages of stellar evolution will allow one to track those chemical and physical changes along the evolutionary track. Presented in this thesis are the results from a series of unbiased systematic line surveys targeting the circumstellar envelopes of evolved stars. As part of an on-going effort, these surveys aim to expand the coverage both in terms of objects at different evolutionary stages and wavelength ranges in order to paint a more complete picture in our understanding of the chemical evolution in objects at the final stages of stellar evolution. All surveys included in the present study are conducted using the 45m radio telescope at the Nobeyama Radio Observatory, and the same instrumental settings were used when observing a given frequency region to minimize the systematic uncertainties. The four objects surveyed in this study, the asymptotic giant branch star CIT6, the proto-planetary nebulae CRL 2688 and CRL 618, and the planetary nebula NGC7027, represent a healthy sample from all key phases of late-stage stellar evolution. Since the surveys are conducted in millimeter-wavelengths, they are mostly targeting rotational transitions from molecules. In particular, rotational transitions associated with the cyanopolyyne chain HC7N reported in the survey of CIT6 and CRL 2688 are novel detections. Spectra from the series of surveys are analyzed using previously obtained spectra of the prototypical asymptotic giant branch star IRC+10216 as a benchmark. Results from fractional abundance computations suggested that CIT6 is a more evolved specimen relative to IRC+10216 and supported chemical models pertaining to the synthesis of cyanopolyyne chains. Intensity ratios in CRL 2688 showed that the cyanopolyyne enrichment towards conclusion of the asymptotic giant branch phase is no longer present in proto-planetary nebulae. Rotational analysis provided evidence to support the hypothesis that the ammonia absorption in CRL 618 originates from two distinct components. Flux ratios in NGC7027 also showed that the recombination lines in the planetary nebula behave according to theoretical predictions. Altogether, these findings will complement previous results and enable one to trace and understand the interplay between chemistry and physical conditions within the circumstellar envelope as objects proceeds on the evolutionary track. / published_or_final_version / Physics / Master / Master of Philosophy

Development of Signal Sources for Millimeter and Submillimeter Wave Output

Kirby, Peter Lund 09 August 2007 (has links)
The objectives of this research lie in the area of millimeter and submillimeter wave signal generation and are directed into two paths that are separate, but related. The first involves the development of a W-Band oscillator using Raytheon's Metamorphic High Electron Mobility Transistor (MHEMT) substrate. The second involves the development of silicon formed rectangular waveguide to replace metallic waveguide, ultimately to be used in THz signal source circuits. An exploration of two different topologies for a W-Band oscillator design utilizing Raytheon s MHEMT substrate is presented. This material will demonstrate the reasoning behind the topology selection and the approach of the design. An evaluation of this first ever W-Band MHEMT oscillator will be presented demonstrating its performance capabilities. Finally, an oscillator design will be presented extending the first successful MHEMT W-Band design. The area of Silicon rectangular waveguide with is covered. A design approach of the silicon waveguide will be discussed. The technology used to fabricate and package the silicon waveguide will be explained. The results of the very first 400 GHz silicon waveguide will be shown and the future efforts will be covered. A silicon micromachined waveguide multiplier using an HBV diode circuit is constructed and successfully demonstrated with an output frequency of 261 GHz, showing little difference between using micromachined waveguide and metal waveguide. Lastly, a power combining frequency multiplier is developed utilizing HBV diodes with an output of 260 GHz. The input and output sections are created using branch line couplers. The results showed good power generation as compared to a single diode multiplier.
