A Multi-Frequency Microstrip-fed Annular-Slot Antenna

This note describes a multi frequency annular slot antenna. The design is based on the paper: “A Multi-frequency Microstrip-fed Annular Slot Antenna” by Hooman Tehrani and Kai Chang. The entire structure is defined parametrically to allow optimisation and parametric studies. The setup process in CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® takes about 10 to 15 min for an experienced user.

Calculation Results

The simulation results agree very well with the published results (Figure 3). Several slot resonances are excited. The simulated resonance frequencies are at 3.5 GHZ, 4.5 GHz and 6.5 GHz respectively.

A Multiphysics Approach to Magnetron and Microwave Oven Design

A Multiphysics Approach to Magnetron and Microwave Oven Design Document type
The magnetrons used in microwave ovens operate on the same frequency band as Wi-Fi equipment, and the radiation they release can interfere with the operation of wireless networks. This paper presents a multiphysics simulation of a magnetron using CST STUDIO SUITE®, with the aim of testing the electrical, magnetic, thermal and mechanical characteristics of a low-interference magnetron design. The simulation results are then compared to measurements made experimentally, and the two sets of results are shown to be in good agreement. Read full article..

Wearable Antennas for Body Centric Wireless Communication

Wearable Antennas for Body Centric Wireless Communication
Wireless body area networks are an increasingly important area of research and show great promise for monitoring and communication in diverse application areas such as healthcare, public safety and defence. The antenna is the crucial enabling component which allows communication between sensors, and with other off-body systems (e.g. GPS and GSM). But the antenna operates in a particularly challenging environment, in close proximity to the human body, and its performance may be affected by deformation, e.g. if integrated directly into clothing. The design of these antennas is thus challenging, and numerical simulation is an indispensable tool for the antenna engineer. This webinar will discuss the key challenges in the virtual prototyping of body worn antennas, describing how CST MICROWAVE STUDIO can be used to construct realistic flexible and conformal geometries, and how these can be studied and optimized in the context of their body-centric environment.

Combined 3D electromagnetic and spin response simulation of MRI systems webinar

Combined 3D electromagnetic and spin response simulation of MRI systems webinar
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) systems rely on a complex interaction of different physical domains: electromagnetic fields trigger a response of nuclear spins inside the human body, while thermal heating of the body needs to be controlled. The quality of the resulting MR image depends both on the homogeneity of the underlying RF fields and on the sequence chosen to create the image. Read full article..

Multiple Band-Notched Planar Monopole UWB Antenna

Multiple Band-Notched Planar Monopole UWB Antenna
A multiple band-notched planar monopole antenna for multiband wireless systems is presented. The proposed antenna consists of a wideband planar monopole Antenna and the multiple U-shape slots, producing band-notched characteristics. This technique is suitable for creating ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna with narrow frequency notches or for creating multiband antennas. Various antenna configurations were simulated with CST MICROWAVE STUDIO®. Read full article..
