3D Smith Chart Constant Quality Factor Semi-Circles Contours for Positive and Negative Resistance Circuits

The article firstly proves that the constant quality factor (Q) contours for passive circuits, while represented on a 2D Smith chart, form circle arcs on a coaxal circle family. Furthermore, these circle arcs represent semi-circles families in the north hemisphere while represented on a 3D Smith cha...
