Electromagnetics Research Group

Fundamental and applied research in the interaction of electromagnetic fields with both electronic and biological systems.
Members of the Electromagnetics Research Group (EMRG) conduct research across a broad range of topics, both fundamental and applied.  Applied research includes the design of microwave frequency selective structures, body-worn antennas, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), and Terahertz sources and sensors.  Further research includes the development of new techniques for materials characterization via interrogation by microwave and Terahertz radiation.  Fundamental research is primarily concerned with developing rigorous computational methods for the analysis of fields across the electromagnetic spectrum.  These methods include novel discretization techniques, fast methods in the frequency and time domains, and multiscale analysis.

IEEE AP-S Student Design Contest 2011

Congratulations to Andrew Temme, Don VanderLaan, and Steve Zajac for being selected as finalists in the 2011 IEEE AP-S Student Design Contest.  Earlier this year, the three were selected as semi-finalists and given funds to build and test a compact antenna measurement system.  This week, it was announced that their design was selected for the final round of the contest.  The team will be travelling to Spokane, WA in July to present their work at the 2011 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation.

A video presentation of the team's design can be found here.  

2011 Graduate Office Fellowship (GOF)

Jose A. Hejase of the Terahertz Systems Laboratory (TeSLa) has been awarded the MSU Graduate Office Fellowship for the second year in a row (2010 and 2011).

Dan Dault receives the NSF GRFP Fellowship

Another week, another fellowship !

PhD candidate Dan Dault has been awarded the prestigeous NSF Gradauate Research Fellowship. He has been awarded this fellowship for his proposal to study accelerated method of moment based solutions to scattering from multiscale periodic structures. 

The lab congratulates Dan on this latest feather in his cap.
