Abstract
This session introduces novel structures and components for microwave and millimeter wave bands,including polarizers, polarization converters, orthomode transducers, and new types of metamaterials and leaky wave antennas. It is demonstrated how to create an isotropic volumetric metamaterial out of planar elements by randomly distributing them. Compact planar polarizers are proposed, along with simple CAD formulas for analyzing them. A simple scheme for creating an artificial material is used to create an orthomode transducer as well as a polarization rotator. A novel type of leaky-wave antenna that has reduced beam squint with frequency is demonstrated.

Abstract
Radio to terahertz waves are low-energy electromagnetic signals that, owing to their capability in interacting with biological samples in a penetrant yet non-destructive way, are suitable for sensing, imaging and characterization in a fast, compact and label-free manner. With near-field interaction, they can even have nanoscale lateral and depth resolution despite their long wavelengths. However, use of microwaves and millimeter-waves for this purpose presents new and interdisciplinary challenges, bridging fundamental science and technological development. This session introduces the most recent advances in CMOS sensors and microwave microscope enabled bio-sensing, imaging and characterization.

Abstract
Load modulation in power amplifiers is a technique that allows for the change of the load termination of the active device in real-time in order to optimize a desired figure of merit (efficiency, linearity, output power). The Doherty amplifier is the most successful power amplifier adopting load modulation; however, other techniques exist that are able to overcome some of the Doherty's limitations and provide improved performance for specific applications. This focus session will highlight the emerging power amplifier solutions adopting load modulation techniques. These techniques are of high importance for the microwave community since they can be adopted in a wide range of applications (mobile telecom, 5G, WiFi, satellite telecommunications, radar, electronic warfare) and can enhance the performance of the power amplifier; the most critical component of a microwave radio.

This session presents novel components and signal-processing techniques for the VHF and UHF bands. One paper demonstrates that angle-of-arrival can be determined using a modulated scatterer. Another presents a circulator based upon modulation techniques rather than magnets and ferrites. Other papers present tunable band-pass filters, adjustable phase shifters, and an adjustable two-band high-power directional coupler.

Abstract
This session presents a selection of techniques to achieve high performance in high power amplifier design. Covers efficiency enhancement techniques, including optimization of baseband impedance for wideband applications as well as the application of DPD linearizing the amplifier and extending the power range. Additional work covers package internal matching for broader band and higher efficiency performance. Another work includes an internal partial match and external combiner to achieve kW power in a compact size. A PA design in a T/R MMIC is demonstrated that achieves a greater than an octave bandwidth at C-Ku band. The session covers a range of technologies and new techniques for high power amplifier design.

Abstract
This session focuses on innovations on highly appealing phased array systems and applications. The manuscripts come from industrial and academic communities. Phased array systems for communication and sensor applications are presented. In particular, phased array architectures for high-altitude pseudo-satellite applications and 5G communications are considered. System-level and development perspectives are provided in the presentations. In addition, the effects of interferences in the performance of phased array in terms of intermodulation phenomena and sensitivity degradation are also considered. Finally, some insight on linearity and efficiency improvement in phased array transmitters with a large number of elements is provided.

Abstract
While RF switches are key elements in modern wireless communications and defense applications, switch performance has been stagnant over a decade or so. With 5G on the horizon, defense RF systems moving to the millimeter-wave, and software defined configurability; low loss RF and millimeter-wave switches are highly desirable. Recent phase-change material RF switches are very promising with a 10 times better RF switch figure-of-merit (Ron*Coff) demonstrated over SOI switches. This focused session will cover emerging PCM RF switches for 5G wireless and defense applications.

Abstract
This session reflects the current development trends for microwave accoustic components for RF filtering in wireless communication systems. The applicability of SAW devices operating in the sub 6 GHz range is investigated. A miniaturized triplexer constructed out of two diplexers using SAW resonators and LC components is presented. Furthermore, an instrinsically switchable and frequency reconfigurable FBAR filter based on ferroelectric BST is reported. Finally, acoustic-wave-lumped-element-resonators (AWLRs) are used to demonstrate input-reflectionless bandpass filters as well as multiband bandstop filters with continuously tunable stopband bandwidths.

In this session, advances in mm-wave to terahertz sensing, imaging and communication links will be presented. The first pair of papers will discuss utilizing wide-band multi-port antennas for multi-functional imaging capable of beam steering and polarization detection, and for near-field spectroscopy using regression analysis. This is followed by a 120 GHz, 4-channel radar system on a chip for MIMO and phased array applications. The session will conclude with two papers on mm-wave and THz wireless transceiver communication links at 39 GHz and 300 GHz.
