Spectrum occupancy measurements and lessons learned in the context of cognitive radio (2016)
Conference Proceeding
Mehdawi, M., Riley, N. G., Ammar, M., Fanan, A., & Zolfaghari, M. (2016). Spectrum occupancy measurements and lessons learned in the context of cognitive radio. https://doi.org/10.1109/TELFOR.2015.7377446

Various measurement campaigns have shown that numerous spectrum bands are vacant even though licenses have been issued by the regulatory agencies. Dynamic spectrum access (DSA) based on Cognitive Radio (CR) has been regarded as a prospective solution...

Quality measurements of an UWB reduced-size CPW-fed aperture antenna (2016)
Book Chapter
Zolfaghari, M., Riley, N. G., Mehdawi, M., Fanan, A., Ammar, M., & Meng, F. (2016). Quality measurements of an UWB reduced-size CPW-fed aperture antenna. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. https://doi.org/10.1109/TELFOR.2015.7377526

The paper presents a characterization of a compact co-planar waveguide (CPW)-fed slot loaded low return loss planar printed antenna designed for wireless communication and ultra-wideband (UWB) applications. Following a review of the antenna design, w... Read More about Quality measurements of an UWB reduced-size CPW-fed aperture antenna.

Comparison of spectrum occupancy measurements using software defined radio RTL-SDR with a conventional spectrum analyzer approach (2016)
Conference Proceeding
Fanan, A., Riley, N., Mehdawi, M., Ammar, M., & Zolfaghari, M. (2016). Comparison of spectrum occupancy measurements using software defined radio RTL-SDR with a conventional spectrum analyzer approach. https://doi.org/10.1109/TELFOR.2015.7377447

In the present day Cognitive Radio has become a realistic option for solution of the spectrum scarcity problem in wireless communication. Recently, the TV band has attracted attention due to the considerable potential for exploitation of available TV...
