報告題目:Metantennas: from Metamaterial Physics to Antenna Technology
報告人:IEEE Fellow, Prof. Chen Zhining
Metamaterials or Metasurfaces have been one of the hottest research topics in electromagnetic community, in particular, antenna engineering. This talk reports the latest progress in the applications of metasurfaces in 5G and B5G antenna engineering (metantennasin short) at microwave/millimeter-wave bands. First, the new requirements for 5G antennas are introduced and then the concepts of metasurfaces are briefed. After that, the recent progress in the research and development of microwave metantennas is updated with two metasurface-based design examples.
Professor Zhi Ning Chen received his BEng, MEng, and PhD degrees all in Electrical Engineering from the Institute of Communications Engineering (ICE), China and his second PhD degree from University of Tsukuba, Japan, respectively.
Professor Chen is currently interested in engineering electromagnetics and antennas for microwaves, mmW, submmW, and THz systems. He has published 620+ technical papers and authored/edited the books entitledBroadband Planar Antennas,UWB Wireless Communication,Antennas for Portable Devices, andAntennas for Base Stations in Wireless Communications. He also contributed to the books entitledUWB Antennas and Propagation for Communications, Radar, and Imaging,Antenna Engineering Handbookas well asMicrostrip and Printed Antennas.
