Abstract:

Wave Computation Technologies and Duke University will develop minimally coupled, co-mingled E and B field antennas through numerical and experimental investigations based on first-principle theories. The project objectives are to (a) develop the simulation capability for modeling superconducting quantum interference filter devices and the related B field antennas, (b) make appropriate designs of co-mingled E and B antennas, and (c) experimentally verify and improve these designs. The numerical simulation will also include the superconducting and quantum mechanic effects in the B field antennas; thus, this project will provide a new tool to determine the optimal configurations of individual E and B field antennas and the arrays formed by such antennas. Based on the successful development of 1D and simple 2D SQIF array modeling capabilities, in Phase 2, we will develop sophisticated 2D SQIF array simulation capabilities for magnetic field antennas, as well as multiscale simulation capabilities for electric field antennas in the near field based on our enhanced new commercial electromagnetic field software package Wavenology EM. With this tool we will determine the mutual coupling and isolation levels from a variety of combinations of E field and B field transmitters/receivers, and the dependence on scanning parameters such as the scan angle. We will also experimentally verify the designed co-mingled E and B field antennas.
