Realizing All-Dielectric Devices from Transformation Electromagnetics
A team from Oxford and the University of London fabricated and tested a 2-D generalized Maxwell fish-eye lens has been from all-dielectric polymer/ceramic composite materials. The graded refractive index profile of the lens, discretized into a concentric-ring structure, functioned as a two-way beam splitter. Epoxy composites, with a broad dielectric constant range that can be precisely controlled, were used to cast the lens using a low-cost manufacturing method that can readily accommodate different geometries.

BIOMEDICAL Modeling How Skin Absorbs Sub-THz Radiation
With sub-THz data rates over 100 Gbps on the horizon, at wavelengths on par with the structures of the human skin, it is important to understand how radiation will interact with biology (and why sweat glands can act as helical microwave antennas).
Upcoming MTT-S-sponsored meetings include European Microwave Week (with EuMIC 2017, EuMC 2017, and EuRAD 2017, Nuremburg, Germany, 8-13 Oct.), Electronic Packaging and Systems (EPEPS 2017, San Jose, CA, 15-18 Oct.), and Global Humanitarian Technology (GHTC 2017, San Jose, CA, 19-22 Oct.).
