Distinguished Microwave Lecturers

The Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, in conjunction with the technical coordinating committees, each year carefully selects a group of Distinguished Microwave Lecturers who are recognized experts in their fields.

The lecturers are available to present talks to MTT-S chapters world-wide. MTT-S provides a budget to help defray travel expenses, while chapters usually cover local expenses such as meals. Chapters are strongly encouraged to take full advantage of this unique resource. MTT-Chapters or Student Chapters desiring to schedule a DML Talk in 2019, need to complete DML Request Form. Deadline to send the form is November 1, 2018. Before the end of 2018, DMLs will receive Talk Assignments for 2019. They will contact Chapters to arrange time of Talks. 

Everyone is welcome to attend the Winter Technical Meeting on Saturday January 19, 2019, 1:00pm – 3:00pm at Rosen Plaza Hotel, Orlando, Florida. This meeting provides a forum for MTT-S Members and others to preview the Distinguished Microwave Lectures (DML) by the newly elected Distinguished Microwave Lecturers of Class 2019-2021. More detail here.

Fundamentals of mm-Wave and Sub-Terahertz Frequency Generation, Synthesis, and Radiation for Multi-Antenna Array Transceivers

Payam Heydari

MTT-23 RFIC Committee

University of California, Irvine

Operation in the mm-wave and terahertz (THz) bands has gained great interest due to abundance of unutilized spectrum and resurgence of new applications in wireless/cellular communications, most notably 5G. If combined with spectrally efficient (de-)modulation techniques, mm-wave/THz wireless communi...

Low Phase Noise Signal Generation utilising Oscillators, Resonators & Filters and Atomic Clocks

Jeremy Everard

MTT-14 Microwave Low-Noise Techniques Committee

Oscillators are used in almost all consumer and professional electronic systems and the phase noise and jitter set the ultimate performance limit in navigation, communications and RADAR systems. It is therefore essential to develop simple accurate theories and design procedures to produce oscillator...

Advanced RF Front-End and Transceiver Systems Design Overview for Carrier Aggregation based 4G/5G Radios

Walid Youssef Ali-Ahmad

MTT-23 RFIC Committee

UC San Diego

Tel: +1 858-228-0660

Over the past few years, there has been an explosion in the mobile data usage mostly due to the increasing number of tablets and smart phones in use. To support such demand, wider transmission bandwidths are needed, and hence, the technique of Carrier Aggregation (CA) has been introduced in 4G cellu...
