Recent Developments in mm-Wave Technology and Applications

New wireless applications are being developed at the high end of the microwave region, where mmwavelengths provide the means for wider bandwidths (and higher data rates) and offer new capabilities for sensors and imaging. Implementing mm-wave circuits and systems presents engineering challenges that do not exist at lower frequencies, due to both the physical dimensions defined by the wavelength, and device properties that are at the boundary of electronic and photonic behaviors. In this report, we have collected news reports and other notes about mm-wave technology and its uses. The diversity of work illustrates the potential of mm-waves for present and future applications.
