Broadband Dual-Polarized Antenna with High Port Isolation and Polarization Purity

  • Fusco V.
  • Rulikowski P.
  • Wolosinski G.

This paper presents a novel high symmetry balun which significantly enhances the performance of dipole-based dual-polarized antennas. The new balun structure provides enhanced differential capability leading to high performance in terms of port-to-port isolation and far-field cross polarization. An example antenna using this balun is proposed. The simulated results show 53.5% of fractional bandwidth within the band from 1.71 to 2.96 GHz (VSWR less than 1.5) and port-to-port isolation better than 59 dB. The radiation characteristic shows around 9 dBi of gain and far-field cross polarization less than -48 dBi over the entire bandwidth. The detailed balun functioning and full antenna measurements will be presented during the conference. Performance comparison with similar structures will be also provided.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
