Ultra-wideband (UWB) radio propagation is investigated to evaluate the signal attenuation due to walls of common materials widely used in indoor environment as glass, wood and dry wall. This study is carried out by experimental and analytical techniques. Time domain measurements of the shielding effect produced by panels of dispersive materials are presented. The experimental set-up for UWB applications is also described. A procedure based on the transmission line (TL) theory applied to shielding problems is developed to calculate the field attenuation in frequency domain and the transient results are then obtained by the Inverse Fast Fourier Transform (IFFT). The analytical and the experimental results are finally compared.

Abstract

Ultra-wideband (UWB) radio propagation is investigated to evaluate the signal attenuation due to walls of common materials widely used in indoor environment as glass, wood and dry wall. This study is carried out by experimental and analytical techniques. Time domain measurements of the shielding effect produced by panels of dispersive materials are presented. The experimental set-up for UWB applications is also described. A procedure based on the transmission line (TL) theory applied to shielding problems is developed to calculate the field attenuation in frequency domain and the transient results are then obtained by the Inverse Fast Fourier Transform (IFFT). The analytical and the experimental results are finally compared.
