A warm welcome to our new group member Ami Ajay Desai
, who's beginning her PhD studies. Also, best wishes to Daniel Schemmel who completed his MS studies in our group and is now heading to MIT to start his PhD studies.
We presented 3 papers at the 2017 IEEE AP-S Symposium
in San Diego. Along with Professors Fan Yang and Atef Elsherbeni, we also offered a half-day short course on reflectarray antennas entitled Reflectarray Antennas: Theory, Designs, and Applications
Congratulations to the first group of Colorado School of Mines students
who received their Level 1 Keysight RF and Microwave Industry-Ready Student Certificates
Daniel presented his research
at GRADS 2017
on April 7. He also successfully defended his MS Thesis
on April 12 with the title 'A wireless energy harvesting system with beamforming capabilities'
. Congratulations, Daniel!
entitled 'Pulse dispersion in phased arrays
' was published in International Journal of Antennas and Propagation
. In this work, we outline the limitations of phased array antennas arising from their limited instantaneous bandwidth and provide a comparative study of pulse dispersion in phased arrays as a function of beam scanning.
We officially announced the Keysight RF and Microwave Industry-Ready Student Certification Program at Colorado School of Mines
. Mines students that are awarded this certification demonstrate their achievements in the knowledge and usage of Keysight EESof EDA software and instrumentation and will immediately be able to deliver faster results at a higher level to our industry partners and, ultimately, their employers.
Daniel presented his preliminary design for a Smart Wireless Energy Harvester
at the National Radio Science Meeting
in Boulder, Colorado. Daniel was also awarded a Fellowship Grant from the National Academics
in Washington, DC, to attend this conference. Well done Daniel!
Jan. 2017: We presented the results of our investigations into Pulse Dispersion in Phased & Timed Arrays at the National Radio Science Meeting in Boulder, Colorado. In this work, we delineate the system level requirements for wideband communications in antenna arrays.
