(31-03-2017) Best Student Paper Award at the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES) 2017 Annual Conference

Researchers from IDLab-imec have received the Best Student Paper Award at the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES) 2017 Annual Conference in Firenze, Italy. The first author and presenter of the paper was Ph.D. student Martijn Huynen.

The paper describes a novel method to simulate scattering and radiation from arbitrary materials, including good conductors, in a boundary integral equation (BIE) framework. The advocated technique relies on the differential surface admittance operator, which introduces an equivalent surface current density, effectively changing the antenna’s material to that of the background medium. Constructed out of the volume’s eigenmodes, the operator is employed to assess the radiation properties of a lossy Yagi-Uda antenna.
