Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The key enabling technologies of the future and current information society include fifth generation (5G) of cellular communications and Internet of Things (IoT). Moreover, new wireless Lan standards like IEEE 802.11ah, IEEE 802.11ad are emerging. Additionally, Radiofrequency identification (RFID) tags and Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN) play an important role in modern connected world. Antenna syntesis and design for these emerging techologies is a challenging task. We invite researchers to contribute original papers describing the design of antennas for emerging technologies of 5G, IoT RFID, WLAN, and WBAN. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Antenna design for IoT
  • Antenna Array design
  • mmwave antenna design
  • 5G/4G antenna design
  • Wireless LAN antenna design
  • Antenna design for WBAN
  • Antenna design for RFID
  • Antenna design for emerging wireless networks (vehicle to vehicle, wearable antennas, satellite networks, biomedical applications, etc.)

The elementary radiator of a planar array for next generation millimeter-wave (mm-wave) 5G base stations is described. The antenna is designed for high density interconnect (HDI) manufacturing for yielding a compact, densely-interconnected, and highly-integrable stacked structure. The layout of the single element is determined by directly optimizing key radiation features of the whole planar arrangement according to specific application-driven requirements. In addition, thanks to the exploitation of a spline-shaped modelling of the radiator, suitable performance in terms of impedance matching, realized gain, half-power beamwidth (HPBW), polarization purity, and inter-element isolation are achieved within the 28-GHz pass-band. Moreover, integrated out-of-band filtering capabilities are obtained in selected and wide non-contiguous stop-bands without additional circuitry. Full article
