Patent for Harris & Vittoria

ECE Professors Vincent Harris & Carmine Vittoria awarded patent for “Voltage tuning of microwave magnetic devices using magnetoelectric transducers”.

Abstract Source: USPTO

Tunable microwave magnetic devices that provide increased performance with reduced size, weight, and cost. The disclosed microwave magnetic devices are voltage-tunable devices that include ferrite substrates. To tune the devices, the magnetic permeability of the respective ferrite substrates is varied by external, voltage-tuned, magnetic fringe fields created by one or more magnetoelectric (ME) transducers.
