  • Wideband Planar Hybrid With Ultralow Amplitude Imbalance
    IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, 2017
    Co-Authors: Hawal Rashid, Parisa Yadranjee Aghdam, Denis Meledin, Vincent Desmaris, Victor Belitsky

    Abstract:

    We present a new design approach for the 90° directional coupler with very low Amplitude Imbalance. The primary feature of this quadrature coupler is the introduction of a controllable ripple in the operational band for achieving a better overall Amplitude balance. This design concept is demonstrated through a 90° branch-line hybrid for the 4–7.9 GHz band (65% fractional bandwidth) using microstrip transmission lines. Our simulations indicate that the Amplitude Imbalance of the designed hybrid is better than 0.3 dB over the most of the 4–7.9 GHz band with a phase Imbalance better than ±8.5°. Experimental verification of the hybrid shows excellent agreement with simulations.

  • Design of Wideband Waveguide Hybrid With Ultra-Low Amplitude Imbalance
    IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology, 2016
    Co-Authors: Hawal Rashid, Victor Belitsky, Vincent Desmaris, Marcel Ruf, Thilo Bednorz, Andreas Henkel

    Abstract:

    We present a design and synthesis procedure for a new 90 ° waveguide hybrid with ultra-low Amplitude Imbalance. This novel hybrid design is based on Reed’s multiple branch waveguide hybrid. The primary feature of this quadrature hybrid design is the introduction of a controllable ripple in the operational band by, firstly changing the heights of the input and output branches and, secondly, by introducing three waveguide-height discontinuity sections placed symmetrically in the main waveguide. This layout allows ultra-low Amplitude Imbalance over a wide operational band. At the same time, it permits a greater input/output branch height as compared to the Reed’s 5-branch waveguide hybrid, which should ease fabrication for short-mm and sub-mm wavelengths. This design concept is demonstrated through a 90 ° waveguide hybrid for the 159-216 GHz band (30% fractional bandwidth). Our simulations indicate that the Amplitude Imbalance of the hybrid is better than 0.2 dB over the most of the 159-216 GHz band with a phase Imbalance better than ±4°. Experimental verification of the hybrid shows excellent agreement with the simulations.

  • Novel Waveguide 3 dB Hybrid With Improved Amplitude Imbalance
    IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, 2014
    Co-Authors: Hawal Rashid, Denis Meledin, Vincent Desmaris, Victor Belitsky

    Abstract:

    We present a new design concept for a 90° waveguide hybrid and its implementation. This novel hybrid design is based on a multiple branch waveguide hybrid. The primary feature of this quadrature waveguide hybrid is the introduction of a controllable ripple in the operational band for achieving a better overall Amplitude Imbalance. This design concept is verified by implementation of a 90° waveguide hybrid for the 166-208 GHz band and can be used for waveguide hybrids up to several THz. Our simulations indicate that the Amplitude Imbalance of the designed hybrid is better than 0.11 dB over the most of the 166-208 GHz band with a phase Imbalance better than ± 2.3°. Experimental verification of the hybrid shows excellent agreement with simulations with an Amplitude Imbalance better than 0.15 dB and phase Imbalance of ± 2.5° over most of the band being achieved.

  • Planar Reconfigurable Balanced Rat-Race Coupler With Improved Amplitude Imbalance Performance and Common-Mode Noise Absorption
    IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, 2020
    Co-Authors: Xiangguan Tan, Feng Lin, Houjun Sun, Quan Xue

    Abstract:

    In this article, the design method for absorptive balanced rat-race couplers with reconfigurable power-dividing ratio is proposed for the first time. First, the differential-mode (DM) and common-mode (CM) port equivalent impedances of the eight-port balanced network is derived by the even–odd mode method under the mixed-mode isolation and matching conditions. The power-dividing ratio is tuned by changing the admittance ratio of the network components, which greatly extends the Amplitude Imbalance bandwidth. Then, a nonabsorptive reconfigurable balanced rat-race coupler that consists of transmission lines with adjustable characteristic impedance is proposed. Furthermore, based on the derived DM and CM port equivalent impedances, an absorptive network is designed. Finally, the absorptive reconfigurable balanced rat-race coupler is achieved by attaching the absorptive network at the balanced ports of the designed nonabsorptive reconfigurable balanced rat-race coupler. For verification, the 2-GHz nonabsorptive and absorptive reconfigurable balanced rat-race couplers are designed and measured. The measured results agree well with the simulations. For the nonabsorptive coupler, the measured power-dividing ratio is tuned from −8.5 to 8.9 dB, while the 15-dB DM matching and isolation bandwidth is greater than 370 MHz. For the absorptive coupler, the measured power-dividing ratio is tuned from −8.3 to 9.0 dB, while the 15-dB DM matching and isolation bandwidth and 15-dB CM matching bandwidth are greater than 450 and 1150 MHz, respectively. The measured 0.5-dB Amplitude Imbalance bandwidths of the nonabsorptive and absorptive couplers are 6%–14.5% and 7%–15.6%, respectively.
