Northern Canada AP/MTT Jt. Chapter

IEEE

Distinguished Lecturer: Professor Fan Yang

The IEEE Northern Canada Section Antennas & Propagation Society and the Microwave Theory & Techniques Society (IEEE NCS APS/MTTS) joint chapter would like to invite you to attend the next installment of our invited talks.  Professor Fan YANG, Tsinghua University, China, will be giving a presentation titled “ Surface Electromagnetics: Physics Exploration and Engineering Applications

Where: ICE 7-395, University of Alberta
When: 25-September-2018, 12:00PM to 01:00PM

Abstract

From frequency selective surfaces (FSS) to electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) ground planes, from impedance boundaries to Huygens metasurfaces, novel electromagnetic surfaces have been emerging in both microwaves and optics. Many intriguing phenomena occur on these surfaces, and novel devices and applications have been proposed accordingly, which have created an exciting paradigm in electromagnetics, so called “surface electromagnetics”. This seminar will review the development of electromagnetic surfaces, as well as the state-of-the-art concepts and designs. Detailed presentations will be provided on their unique electromagnetic features. Furthermore, a wealth of practical examples will be presented to illustrate promising applications of the surface electromagnetics in microwaves and optics.

About the Speaker:
