Simulating Wireless Power Transfer in Circular Loop Antennas

This model addresses the concept of wireless power transfer by studying the energy coupling between two circular loop antennas tuned for UHF RFID frequency whose size is reduced using chip inductors. The circular loop antenna provides inherent inductive coupling by its shape, and it can ... Read More

Computing the Radar Cross Section of a Perfectly Conducting Sphere

A classic benchmark problem in computational electromagnetics is to solve for the radar cross section (RCS) of a sphere in free space illuminated by a plane wave. This model solves for the RCS of a metallic sphere that has a very high conductivity, which can be treated as a material with ... Read More

Step-Index Fiber

The transmission speed of optical waveguides is superior to microwave waveguides, because optical devices have a much higher operating frequency than microwaves, enabling a far higher bandwidth. This model is an example of a single step-index waveguide made of silica glass. The inner ... Read More

Modeling of Pyramidal Absorbers for an Anechoic Chamber

In this model, a microwave absorber is constructed from an infinite 2D array of pyramidal lossy structures. Pyramidal absorbers with radiation-absorbent material (RAM) are commonly used in anechoic chambers for electromagnetic wave measurements. Microwave absorption is modeled using a ... Read More

Fresnel Equations (RF)

A plane electromagnetic wave propagating through free space is incident at an angle upon an infinite dielectric medium. This model computes the reflection and transmission coefficients and compares to the Fresnel equations. Read More

H-Bend Waveguide 3D

These examples show how to model a rectangular waveguide for microwaves in 2D and 3D. A single hollow waveguide can conduct two kinds of electromagnetic waves: transversal magnetic (TM) or transversal electric (TE) waves. The models examine a TE wave that has no electric field ... Read More

Radar Cross Section

This tutorial model demonstrates the use of a background field in an electromagnetic scattering problem. Although this example is a boat hit by a radar, this same technique can be used in any situation where an isolated object meets electromagnetic waves from a distant source. For ... Read More

MRI Birdcage Coil

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems generate a magnetic flux density (B-field) to create images. Providing a homogeneous field distribution within a birdcage coil is a key factor for improving the quality of the scanned data. A homogeneous magnetic field can be found through ... Read More

Coplanar Waveguide Bandpass Filter

Coplanar waveguide (CPW) bandpass filters can be designed using interdigital capacitors (IDCs) and short-circuited stub inductors (SSIs). This is a very efficient manufacturing method for producing bandpass filters, which can readily be implemented on a GaAs wafer. The Coplanar ... Read More

SAR of a Human Head Next to a Wi-Fi Antenna

Users of consumer electronics with radiating devices are exposed to radio frequency (RF) emission. The amount of exposure is defined as the specific absorption rate (SAR). That is, the SAR value represents the radio frequency (RF) energy rate absorbed by a body. This model computes local ... Read More
