Publisher and Date:(IEEE-INST Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2008)Decoupling and matching networks may be used to improve the performance of compact antenna arrays where mutual radiator coupling has caused a degradation of the diversity capabilities. A popular network consists of a 180 degrees rat-race directional coupler which decouples the antenna ports followed by impedance matching networks at each port. Researchers however usually neglect the presence of losses both within the antenna array and the decoupling and matching network. For this reason we have ...

Publisher and Date:(Elsevier GMBH Urban & Fischer Verlag, 2008)A reflectance-based modeling method is presented to obtain the distributed-element counterpart of a lumped-element network which is described by measured or computed reflectance data at a set of frequencies. Numerical generation of the scattering parameters forms the basis of this modeling tool. It is not necessary to select a circuit topology for the distributed-element model which is the natural consequence of the modeling process. Our approach supplements the known interpolation methods by a ...
