Low-Profile Miniaturized Coaxial Cavity Resonators and Filters

  • Bulja S.

A new class of coaxial cavity filters with low-profile is proposed. The additional benefits of the technology include: volume reduction, high performance, and superior spurious free-response. The proposed resonator consists of a cavity enclosure and three metallic conductors; an outer hollow cylinder, an inner hollow cylinder protruding the cavity from the opposite side of the first conductor and a third metallic post. The operation principle of the resonator is demonstrated by means of an equivalent lumped element circuit. The circuit allows for a fast and efficient initial design of the resonators. Full-wave optimization is required to produce the final configuration of the filters. Experimental results validate the analysis. The electrical length of the experimental resonators is as low as l0/16. The measured insertion loss of the 5 pole filter is 0.92 dB at 722 MHz. Experimental results show a spurious free response of the order of 7.6 times for the fabricated filter.

  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

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 ...
