Novel Compact Dual-Band Bandpass Microstrip Filter
Subash Vegesna;Mohammad A. Saed
PIER B , 2010, DOI: 10.2528/PIERB10012210
Abstract: In this paper, a novel microstrip structure is developed to realize a dual-band bandpass filter. The proposed bandpass structure uses a microstrip resonator with two independently controlled resonance frequencies producing two frequency bands of interest controlled by adjusting the dimensions of the resonator. Parametric analysis is performed on the structure to determine the optimum dimensions to obtain the desired frequency response and is explained in the paper. The dual-band bandpass filter developed in this paper exhibits dual operating frequencies at 1390 MHz and 2520 MHz with 9.85% and 9.92% fractional bandwidths respectively. We achieved a compact second-order dual-band bandpass filter with controllable resonance frequencies and low insertion losses in the passband with high selectivity. The measured results are in good agreement with simulated results. Additionally, it can be easily fabricated and can be used in applications where miniaturization and compatibility with microstrip technology are of primary concern.
Compact Two-Layer Microstrip Bandpass Filters Using Broadside-Coupled Resonators
Subash Vegesna;Mohammad A. Saed
PIER B , 2012, DOI: 10.2528/PIERB11101708
Abstract: This paper presents a design methodology for realizing broadside-coupled microstrip bandpass filters on multilayer substrates to reduce the size of the filter. The new filter configuration consists of broadside coupled split-ring resonators on two layers backed by a ground plane. With the proposed new method, miniaturization to a greater extent can be achieved compared to the conventional method of realizing microstrip multilayer filters. In addition, coupling apertures in the ground plane used to achieve coupling among the resonators in conventional multilayer structures are eliminated. The proposed design is more flexible compared to traditional multilayer filters. Layers can be easily added to increase the filter order. To demonstrate the method, a miniaturized two-layered bandpass filter centered at 728 MHz with low insertion loss is implemented and investigated. Miniaturization of more than 25% is achieved compared to the conventional broadside coupled structure and more than 40% miniaturization compared to the edge coupled structure. The new microstrip filter discussed in this paper can be realized using simple fabrication techniques.

Mohammad A. Saed
PIER , 2006, DOI: 10.2528/PIER06112703
Abstract: This paper investigates broadband planar antennas that consist of a wide rectangular slot with various tuning stubs. The antennas are fed by coplanar waveguides. Wide slots containing a single tuning stub, V-shaped stubs, as well as inverted F-shaped stubs are investigated. Despite using a high dielectric constant substrate, the proposed antennas exhibit very broad bandwidth. They also have broadside bidirectional radiation. The radiation pattern stability with frequency for the various configurations is presented. One of the proposed configurations, the inverted F stub in a wide rectangular slot, produced very stable radiation patterns over its entire impedance bandwidth of about 40%. Also, an impedance bandwidth of 44% was obtained for the V-shaped stub in a rectangular slot. Simulations as well as experimental results are presented.

Mohammad A. Saed;Rohini Yadla
PIER , 2006, DOI: 10.2528/PIER05041401
Abstract: This paper presents a novel broadband, low-profile dielectric resonator antenna using relatively low dielectric constant substrate material. The rectangular DRA is fed with a stepped microstrip feed to ensure efficient coupling. Bandwidths in excess of 17% are obtained. In addition, the paper investigates methods to miniaturize the antenna using metallic strips or patches. Substantial size reduction is demonstrated while maintaining a reasonable bandwidth. Simulations as well as experimental results are presented.

Jason Leo Durbin;Mohammad A. Saed
PIER Letters , 2012, DOI: 10.2528/PIERL11111810
Abstract: A tunable filtering antenna (filtenna) realized using rings fed with an ultra-wideband (UWB) planar, elliptical monopole antenna is proposed. An array of slotted rings with varactors is placed in close proximity of the planar monopole to obtain the low profile tunable filtenna. The array of rings can be viewed as a small tunable frequency selective surface. The design produces a tuning range of about 3.8-4.4 GHz over a varactor reverse bias voltage of 1-4 V.

Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2014.516169
Abstract: Enterococcus species are one of the leading causes of nosocomial infections, which are difficult to treat specially with the rise of its Vancomycin resistant. Studies of Enterococcus isolates are essential for epidemiological investigation. Typing Enterococci is often based on the traditional phenotypic as well as genotypic methods. In this study Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is used as a novel phenotypic approach to the typing of Enterococci. FTIR spectroscopy results compared to antibiotic susceptibility testing and PCR amplification of Vancomycin gene results; the analysis showed that, 6 isolates were positive for Van gene (4 of VanA, 1 of VanB and 1 VanA plus VanB). Three of VanA and VanA plus VanB were resistant to all antibiotic tested (Ampicillin, Teicoplamin and Vancomycin) and VanB was found to be sensitive. FTIR spectroscopy (first derivatives) divided the isolates into 8 groups. 3 groups of VanA (4 isolates), one of VanB (one isolate), one of VanA plus VanB (one isolate) and the other 13 Enterococcus isolates were divided into 3 clusters. The study demonstrated that FTIR spectroscopy has good discriminative capacity and high reproducibility as compared to other techniques.

Comparing Relationships among Yield and Its Related Traits in Mycorrhizal and Nonmycorrhizal Inoculated Wheat Cultivars under Different Water Regimes Using Multivariate Statistics

International Journal of Agronomy , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/682781
Abstract: Multivariate statistical techniques were used to compare the relationship between yield and its related traits under noninoculated and inoculated cultivars with mycorrhizal fungus (Glomus intraradices); each one consisted of three wheat cultivars and four water regimes. Results showed that, under inoculation conditions, spike weight per plant and total chlorophyll content of the flag leaf were the most important variables contributing to wheat grain yield variation, while, under noninoculated condition, in addition to two mentioned traits, grain weight per spike and leaf area were also important variables accounting for wheat grain yield variation. Therefore, spike weight per plant and chlorophyll content of flag leaf can be used as selection criteria in breeding programs for both inoculated and noninoculated wheat cultivars under different water regimes, and also grain weight per spike and leaf area can be considered for noninoculated condition. Furthermore, inoculation of wheat cultivars showed higher value in the most measured traits, and the results indicated that inoculation treatment could change the relationship among morphological traits of wheat cultivars under drought stress. Also, it seems that the results of stepwise regression as a selecting method together with principal component and factor analysis are stronger methods to be applied in breeding programs for screening important traits. 1. Introduction Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is one of the most widely cultivated and important food crop in the world. Development of high yielding wheat cultivars is the major objective of breeding programs [1]. On the other hand, targeted efforts to breed genotypes for improved mycorrhizal symbiosis result in increased yield in crops under a wide range of environmental conditions and contribute toward sustainability of agricultural ecosystems in which soil-plant-microbe interactions will be better exploited. Screening genotypes via molecular biology and traditional breeding techniques can increase productivity of symbioses and eventually result in increased economic yield of crop plants [2]. Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi colonize the roots of most monocotyledons and dicotyledons, including important crops such as rice, maize, and wheat despite their different root architecture and cell patterning. In nature, mineral nutrient acquisition and water uptake by plant roots are often assisted by symbioses with beneficial AM fungi. During this intimate association, the extraradical hyphal mycelium acquires minerals from the soil beyond the zone

Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2017.56022
Abstract: The aim of this current study is to examine genders equality and the extent of gender stereotypes in the Hebrew Junior High school’s textbooks, especially the texts of the seventh grade. This examination is based on the qualitative model, including an analysis of the 7 grade textbooks’ substances. Through the process of texts analyzation, I become familiar with the extent and existence of gender stereotypes, gender roles, etc. The main findings indicate a positive change in the textbooks towards gender equality, yet it is a quite slow process, and involves many gender stereotypes which represent the weak, inferior role of women in society, such as the description of a woman as a housewife. The numbers of these stereotypes perpetuate the long standing position of man, who poses a higher, most important and dominant status. The research has found that women rights and status remain neglected and inferior; sometimes they are not mentioned in the textbooks at all. Few women were mentioned due to their position or role in society, yet the numbers are poor. Thus, there is an attempt to evoke and exercise gender equality in the Hebrew textbooks, as well as an attempt to limit and change stereotypes towards a better, equal education; however, the change is still too slow and too limited.
