Special Section on Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Technology
The IEICE (Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers) Transactions on Electronics
announces a forthcoming special section on "Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Technology" to be published in
With the recent and rapid growth of wireless applications (3G cellular, wireless LAN, ETC system, millimeter-wave
radar), there are increasing demands of high performance/small size/low cost microwave and millimeter devices/
circuits/components/sub-systems for existing and next generation wireless systems. The purpose of this Special
Section is to publish and stimulate the latest researches and developments in this technical field.
Contributions are solicited in the following topics, but are not limited to:
Active Devices and Circuits (Low-Noise Devices and Circuits, High-Power Devices and Circuits, Control Circuits, MMICs
and HMICs, Silicon RF Devices and Circuits, High-Speed Digital Circuits)
Passive Components (Filters and Resonators, Ferrite and Surface Wave Components, Packaging Techniques, Passive
Devices and Circuits, Wavequides and Striplines, Microwave Superconductivity, WDM Components, RF-MEMS, LTCC Devices)
Systems (Wireless Systems, Optical Fiber Systems, Microwave Applications(ITS, SPS), Microwave Medical & Biological
Applications, EMC, Millimeter-Wave Radar and Sensor, Microwave Photonics, Measurement Techniques)
Antenna and Propagation (Scattering and Propagation, Electromagnetic Field Theory and CAD, Antenna Theory,
Microwave Antennas, Antenna Systems (Phased Array, Active and Adaptive Antennas, MIMO Systems))
2. Submission Instructions
