impedance matching

n.
The use of electric circuits, transmission lines, and other devices to make the impedance of a load equal to the internal impedance of the source of power, thereby making possible the most efficient transfer of power.

It can be see that the mismatched impedance areas consist of two part, one is near 3.5 GHz and another is near 5.5 GHz, which are corresponding to the notch-band positions.
Calculate the inter-stage RF power loss between two adjacent devices with mismatched impedance levels; voltage domain signal levels such as rms voltage, peak-to-peak voltage, and noise spectral density in nV/?Hz; and signal quality metrics such as SNR, SFDR, IMD, and ACLR
Using time domain reflectometry, regions of mismatched impedance on a transmission line can be observed due to their reflection of the incident signal.
