Fractional Order Circuits

The invention of the fractional order circuit elements concept has opened the doors to numerous applications with exceptional performance, which were not achievable for integer order standard circuit elements like inductors and capacitors. In contrast to the traditional
, a fractional element is a function of the parameter value (C or L) and the fractional order 
a, which brings in immense freedom and versatility towards design and applications. The concept has already found its utility in many applications of electromagnetics, mechanics, signal processing, bioengineering, agriculture and control. We have found many interesting utilities of the fractional concept in RF and microwave domain. Initial investigations predict a paradigm shift in fundamental concepts and techniques traditionally used for these designs.
