    Araguz López, Carles; Llaveria Godoy, David; Lancheros Sepulveda, Estefany Maria; Bou Balust, Elisenda; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José; Tonetti, Stefania; Cornara, Stefania; Vicario, Gonzalo; Lluch i Cruz, Ignasi; Matevosyan, Hripsime; Golkar, Alessandro; Cote, Judith; Pierotti, Stéphane; Rodríguez, Pedro; Alvaro Sanchez, A.; Sochacki, Mateusz; Narkiewicz, Janusz (2019-01-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    Earth observation satellite programs are currently facing, for some applications, the need to deliver hourly revisit times, subkilometric spatial resolutions, and near-real-time data access times. These stringent requirements, ...
  • Reprogrammable graphene-based metasurface mirror with adaptive focal point for THz imaging 

    Hosseininejad, Seyed Ehsan; Rouhi, Kasra; Neshat, Mohammad; Faraji-Dana, Reza; Cabellos Aparicio, Alberto; Abadal Cavallé, Sergi; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José (Nature, 2019-02-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    Recent emergence of metasurfaces has enabled the development of ultra-thin flat optical components through different wavefront shaping techniques at various wavelengths. However, due to the non-adaptive nature of conventional ...
  • Bipolar transistor vertical vertical scaling framework 

    Castañer Muñoz, Luis María; Alcubilla González, Ramón; Benavent, A (1994-12)
    Article

    In this paper, we analyse the conductance transient of a Taguchi TGS-822 sensor under a step change in the vapour concentration. A diffusion-limited range in the conductance transient is observed. Adjustments between the ...
  • 5GHz CMOS all-pass filter-based true time delay cell 

    Aghazadeh, Seyed Rasoul; Martínez García, Herminio; Saberkari, Alireza (2018-12-22)
    Article
    Open Access
    Analog CMOS time-delay cells realized by passive components, e.g., lumped LC delay lines, are inefficient in terms of area for multi-GHz frequencies. All-pass filters considered as active circuits can, therefore, be the ...
