Toshiaki Matsui has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Abstract: An open resonator comprises two concave spherical reflectors or one spherical and one plane reflectors positioned so as to form a resonant structure and each being provided at an electromagnetic coupling region thereof with a large number of conductor stripes disposed in parallel at a spacing sufficiently small in comparison with the wavelength of an incident electromagnetic wave. The diameter of the circular coupling region can be made very large in comparison with the wavelength. An ultra-high Q value can be obtained with the open resonator with very high excitation efficiency to a resonator mode. The Q value of the open resonator can be varied with the angle between the directions of the conductor stripes of the two reflecting mirrors.
