Özet

Our paper presents the design, fabrication, and characterization of metamaterial absorber-based microwave imaging detector that is operating in industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band. The results reveal that the structure has almost perfect absorption at 2.39 GHz in the simulation and 2.51 GHz in the experimental measurement. For energy-harvesting applications, Schottky diodes have been used and 11.8-mV dc voltage across a Schottky diode has been observed with 84.2% dc conversion efficiency in harvesting application. To show the different incident angle imaging, MATS-1000 antenna training kit is used, and different imaging pictures are given, which are obtained by MATLAB with the help of a microcontroller card. Both experimental and simulation study results verify that the microwave detector generates accurate images with negligible distortions. The innovative side of this study when it is compared with similar studies can be sorted as having more dc obtained voltage, incident angle characterization, and operation frequency. Simulated and measurement results show that the proposed structure can effectively be used in the imaging at ISM frequency band, which is the most common frequency band in wireless appliances.
