Among the topics are a review of some background materials, characteristics of the circular patch antenna, the U-slot patch antenna, techniques for reducing size, and circular polarization.
We do so in part (i) to study the hadron matrix elements in O(1/M), as the same matrix elements, albeit at different momentum transfers, enter in muon radiative capture [3], and (ii) to test the Dirac structure of the weak current, through the determination of the circular polarization of the associated photon [4, 5].
The decision to emphasize intermittent exposure and circular polarization was based on research indicating that such exposure is associated with alterations in human physiology (26-28), and also on rodent research reporting that circularly polarized fields are more effective than linearly polarized fields in reducing nocturnal melatonin levels (29).
