IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques

About the journal

The IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques (T-MTT) is the preeminent publication concerning RF and microwave technology. It focuses on that part of engineering and theory associated with microwave/millimeter-wave components, devices, circuits, and systems involving the generation, modulation, demodulation, control, transmission, and detection of microwave signals. This includes scientific, technical, and industrial activities. Microwave theory and techniques relates to electromagnetic waves usually in the frequency region between a few MHz and a THz; other spectral regions and wave types are included within the scope of the Society whenever basic microwave theory and techniques can yield useful results. Generally, this occurs in the theory of wave propagation in structures with dimensions comparable to a wavelength, and in the related techniques for analysis and design.

The Impact Factor of T-MTT is 4.3 and the acceptance rate is 27.9%. The average time from submission to first decision is 29.3 days and the average time from submission to final decision is 39.9 days.

Electronic Access is Available to digital subscribers through IEEE Xplore.

The advance of 5G to 6G will join communication and sensing systems (JCS) through wideband base-station, non-terrestrial networks (NTN) such as satellite communications (SATCOM), X-MIMO (eXtreme MIMO), STAR (simultaneous transmit and receive systems also known as self-duplex), and advanced automotive radar systems. Strong interest in techniques to extend systems from RF through microwave to 300 GHz. Systems and sub-systems based on narrowband and wideband low-power transceivers using advanced CMOS, SiGe, GaA and GaN technologies, analog and digital beamforming phased-arrays, active and passive reflect arrays (also known as RIS – reflect impedance surfaces), multi-channel automotive imaging radars, N-path receivers with linearity enhancement and IP3 cancellation, efficient power amplifiers with digital pre-distortion using AI/ML algorithms, to name a few, are being developed at a rapid pace. In addition, calibration and built-in-test of such complex chips and sub-systems reduce the calibration time and system cost. Also, several advanced systems can only be built using novel heterogeneous 3-D packaging capable of co-integrating different technologies in a low-loss and thermally-efficient module. RF/Microwave systems will continue to pervade our daily lives, with D-band and G-band systems coming soon for point-to-point communications and high-resolution radars.

The submission is accomplished through the ScholarOne Manuscript Central website (, in exactly the same way as any other regular MTT Transactions’ submission. When you prepare your manuscript, you should consult the Instructions for Authors ( and follow the T-MTT Word or LaTex Templates available there. Papers not following these templates cannot be accepted into the peer review process.
