This spontaneous electric dipole moment can be repeatedly transitioned between two or more equivalent states or directions upon application of an external electric field -- a property utilised in numerous ferroelectric technologies, for example nano-electronic computer memory, RFID cards, medical ultrasound transducers, infrared cameras, submarine sonar, vibration and pressure sensors, and precision actuators.
Silver ink was then added to those lines, which created a dipole element, thus bestowing its RF filtering capabilities.
Together with their images in the surface, we obtain the system of four dipoles with mutual interactions.
In the present work, antenna sensor is proposed as the synthesized hybrid sensor of the designed DNG with Lattice B and the incorporated dipoles. Numerical results for the effectiveness of the global hybrid sensor are presented in the following subsection.
To different models of magnetization we put in correspondence various magnetizations: [mathematical expression not reproducible] magnetization by dipoles; [??]--magnetization by molecular currents.
This is checked using CST by calculating all the field components around the cylinder (Figure 11) the same way as it was previously done for dipoles. The [E.sub.z] field component (i.e., T[M.sub.z] modes) decays fast around the body as predicted.
