Findings on Microwave and Wireless Technologies Reported by Investigators at Technical University (Liquid crystal-based tunable CRLH-transmission line for leaky wave antenna applications at Ka-Band)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Investigators discuss new findings in Microwave and Wireless Technologies. According to news reporting from Darmstadt, Germany, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "In this work, a liquid crystal based tunable composite right/left-handed transmission line for future leaky wave antennas working at the Ka-band is presented. The tuning of the liquid crystal is achieved by means of magnetic and electric biasing."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Technical University, "For this purpose, different prototypes are fabricated for each biasing technique and their dispersive characteristics compared. Electric tunability is achieved by implementing highly resistive bias lines in the unit cell layout."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Both techniques yield similar tuning capabilities at the operation frequency of 27GHz whereas the electric one has the advantage of being easily integratable in the layout."
