It is worth noting that the review is limited to those technologies suitable to implement NFF antennas for short-range wireless links at the microwave frequency band (up to a few tens of GHz) and does not include the optical devices, such as lenses, dielectrically loaded horns, and reflector mirrors, which are the most valuable technologies at mmwave frequencies and beyond.
Processing of ceramics and high temperature materials typically must be pre-heated until these materials become "dielectrically lossy" or absorbing of microwave energy.
One of the most important advantages of this process is that the SOI wafer can be combined with the deep trench isolation, forming full 3D (three-dimensional) isolation (dielectrically) between on-chip power switches.
