Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the past decade, human beings have entered an era of information explosion, and the popularization of traffic-intensive applications of all types of communication terminals has led to an unprecedented increase in the demand for information and communication. Both wired and wireless communications play a fundamental role in the information age. With the rapid increase in the wireless communication demand, the development of wireless communication systems has encountered bottlenecks. Continuous progress in the commercialization of 5G and the development and application of the Internet of Things, the Internet of Vehicles, wireless body area networks, and wireless sensor networks have put forward new requirements for wireless networks. In addition to the larger bandwidth and lower delay, wireless networks are also required to have a certain degree of intelligence, more efficient resource allocation algorithms, more reasonable network access methods, and more secure information safeguard measures.

Symmetry is an extraordinary characteristic which has been widely deployed in the research fields of wireless communication. This Special Issue invites original research that investigates the symmetry/asymmetry characteristics in wireless communication. We hope to spread knowledge among researchers, designers, manufacturers, and users in this exciting field with this Special Issue.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Symmetry/asymmetry protocol design in wireless communication and sensor networks;
  • Symmetry/asymmetry communication frameworks in wireless communication and sensor networks;
  • Symmetry/asymmetry transmission in satellite communication;
  • Symmetry/asymmetry data communication in wireless sensor networks/Internet of Things/Internet of Vehicles;
  • Symmetry/asymmetry privacy and security challenges in wireless communication and sensor networks;
  • Symmetry/asymmetry resource allocation schemes in wireless communication and sensor networks;
  • Symmetry/asymmetry in intelligent wireless communication and intelligent Internet of Things/Internet of Vehicles.

In this paper, a new structure of the quadrature hybrid coupler (QHC) with compact size is proposed using capacitive composite lines and meandered open stubs. The proposed coupler works at 1.6 GHz with a 0.4 GHz bandwidth, which shows 25% fractional bandwidth (FBW). The proposed QHC occupies only 15 mm × 15 mm (0.12 λ × 0.12 λ), while the typical QHC size is 32 mm × 32 mm (0.25 λ × 25 λ) at the same working frequency. In the designed structure, two symmetric meandered stubs and two symmetric π-shaped composite networks including capacitors and microstrip lines are applied together. The designed QHC has a small size and occupies only 22% of the area of the conventional QHC, resulting in a 78% size reduction. The designed prototype has been analyzed, fabricated and tested, and the experimental results verify the simulated and analysis results. The results show a better than 27 dB return loss, more than 28 dB isolation between the output ports and less than 0.4 dB insertion loss at the working frequency of 1600 MHz. With the achieved desirable specifications, the fabricated QHC is a suitable choice for wireless microwave applications. Full article
