Analysis of finite arrays of axially directed printed dipoles on electrically large circular cylinders
(IEEE, 2004)Various arrays consisting of finite number of printed dipoles on electrically large dielectric coated circular cylinders are investigated using a hybrid method of moments/Green's function technique in the spatial domain. ... 
Anisotropy sensitivity of an acoustic lens with slit aperture
(IEEE, 1993)A conventional spherical acoustic lens is modified by restricting its aperture in the form of a slit to provide directional sensitivity. The spacing between the two parallel absorbing sheets forming the slit is adjustable ... 
Characterization and imaging with lamb wave lens at gigahertz frequencies
(IEEE, 19941011)Lamb wave lenses with conical refracting surfaces are fabricated for use at 400 MHz and 1 GHz. The conical surfaces are ground and polished with mechanical means and they are sufficiently smooth for the frequencies of ...

Focusing surface waves using an axicon
(A I P Publishing, 198512)Axicons are generators of waves which focus on a line. They are used in various imaging and nondestructive testing applications as bulk wave focusing devices with a very long depth of focus. In this letter, a new type of ... 
Fresnel lamb wave and Vgroove lenses with tunable mode selectivity
(IEEE, 1995)The Lamb wave and Vgroove lenses are distinguished by their high surface wave excitation efficiencies. However, due to the fixed incidence angle, a particular lens can only be used for materials having surface wave ...
