An article by F. Costa and A. Monorchio selected among the best in the history of IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation
Since 1952, the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, formerly known as Transactions of the IRE Professional Group on Antennas and Propagation (1952-1955) and IRE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation (1955-1962), has delivered thousands of articles on a wide range of topics of interest to specialists, engineers, educators, and students in the field of interest of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.
To celebrate this event, some of the most influential original research articles published in this journal since its foundation have been highlighted in the these weeks. Among them, the following article was selected:
Costa and A. Monorchio, “A Frequency Selective Radome With Wideband Absorbing Properties,” in IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, vol. 60, no. 6, pp. 2740-2747, June 2012, doi: 10.1109/TAP.2012.2194640.
This work by F. Costa and A. Monorchio (CNIT RaSS Laboratory) presented a novel design of a frequency selective radome which is able to absorb impinging EM signals above the operating band of an antenna. The proposed structure, unlike the usual low RCS radome design totally reflecting the incoming power out of the antenna operating band, provides a tangible reflectivity reduction without compromising the in-band performance.
