Along with numerous opportunities in communication and imaging applications, the design of emerging millimeter-wave (mm-wave) and terahertz (THz) electronic circuits and systems in CMOS technology faces new challenges and requires new devices. Design of CMOS Millimeter-Wave and Terahertz Integrated Circuits with Metamaterials provides alternative solutions using CMOS on-chip metamaterials. Unlike conventional metamaterial devices on printed circuit boards (PCBs), the presented CMOS metamaterials can be utilized to build many mm-wave and THz circuits and systems on chip. Leveraging the authors' extensive expertise and experience with CMOS on-chip metamaterials, this book shows that with the use of metamaterials, one can realize coherent THz signal generation, amplification, transmission, and detection of phase-arrayed CMOS transistors with significantly improved performance. Offering detailed coverage from device to system, the book hereby: Describes integrated circuit design with application of metamaterials in CMOS technology Includes real CMOS integrated circuit examples and chip demonstrations with measurement results Evaluates novel mm-wave and THz communication and imaging systems under CMOS-based system-on-chip integration Design of CMOS Millimeter-Wave and Terahertz Integrated Circuits with Metamaterials reflects the latest research progress and provides a state-of-the-art reference on CMOS-based metamaterial devices and mm-wave and THz systems.
This book is about the basics of nanomagnetism, i.e., properties of magnetic systems specific to small sizes and/or low dimensions. Features described range from static properties (the existence and understanding of magnetic domains and domain walls) to magnetization reversal in domains or domain-wall motion (from quasistatic to precessional dynamics of magnetization) and spintronics (basic magnetoresistance effects and reverse spin transfer torques, their origin, and consequence on magnetization).
Due to the progress in the development of communication systems, it is now possible to develop low cost wearable communication systems. A wearable antenna is meant to be a part of the clothing or close to the body used for communication purposes, which includes tracking and navigation, mobile computing and public safety. Examples include smartwatches (with integrated Bluetooth antennas), glasses (such as Google Glass with WIFI and GPS antennas), GoPro action cameras (with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antennas), etc. They are increasingly common in consumer electronics and for healthcare and medical applications. However, the development of compact efficient wearable antennas is one of the major challenges in the development of wearable communication and medical systems. Technologies such as printed compact antennas and miniaturization techniques have been developed to create efficient small wearable antennas which are the main objective of this book. Each chapter covers enough mathematical detail and explanations to enable electrical, electromagnetic and biomedical engineers and students, and scientists from all areas, to follow and understand the topics presented. New topics and design methods are presented for the first time in the area of wearable antennas, metamaterial antennas and fractal antennas. The book covers wearable antennas, RF measurements techniques and measured results in the vicinity of the human body, setups, and design considerations. The wearable antennas and devices presented in this book were analyzed by using HFSS and ADS 3D full-wave electromagnetics software.
Avoiding Inelastic Strains in Solder Joint Interconnections of IC Devices addresses analytical (mathematical) modeling approaches aimed at understanding the underlying physics and mechanics of the behavior and performance of solder materials and solder joint interconnections of IC devices. The emphasis is on design for reliability, including probabilistic predictions of the solder lifetime. Describes how to use the developed methods of analytical predictive modeling to minimize thermal stresses and strains in solder joint of IC devices Shows how to build the preprocessing models in finite-element analyses (FEA) by comparing the FEA and analytical data Covers how to design the most effective test vehicles for testing solder joints Details how to design and organize, in addition to or sometimes even instead of highly accelerated life tests (HALT), highly focused and highly cost-effective failure oriented accelerated testing (FOAT) to understand the physic of failure of solder joint interconnections Outlines how to convert the low cycle fatigue conditions into elastic fatigue conditions and to assess the fatigue lifetime in such cases Illustrates ways to replace time- and labor-consuming, expensive, and possibly misleading temperature cycling tests with simpler and physically meaningful accelerated tests This book is aimed towards professionals in electronic and photonic packaging, electronic and optical materials, materials engineering, and mechanical design.

The book comprises a new method of solving the integral equation of Leontovich, the most rigorous and most effective equation for the current in thin linear antennas. The book describes the features of the new method in its application in various types of antennas. It considers new ways of analyzing antennas, in particular in the calculation of an antenna gain based on main radiation patterns and the calculation of the directional characteristics of radiators with known distribution of current amplitude. The method of electrostatic analogy proposed by the author, provides the base for comparison of electromagnetic fields of high-frequency currents and electrostatic charges located on linear conductors to improve the directional characteristics of log-periodic and director-type antennas. A new approach to the analysis of the electrical characteristics of a microstrip antenna, which allows expansion of its operation range, is substantiated and developed. New results of antenna synthesis are obtained. The second part of the book is devoted to specific types of antennas (the author had a significant role in their creation). Particular attention is given to ship antennas for different frequency ranges. The book is intended for professionals, working in electrodynamics and those working on development, placement and exploitation of antennas. It will be useful for lecturers (university-level professors), teachers, students of radio engineering and researchers working in various fields of radio electronics and interested in an in-depth study of theoretical problems and designs f antennas. It can also be used for short university courses.
