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.  The EMRG is comprised of Computational EM research led by Dr. Shanker Balasubramaniam, the Terahertz Systems Lab (TeSLa) led by Dr. Premjeet Chahal, and Applied EM and EM Compatibility led by Dr. Edward Rothwell. Many projects in the group are collaborative efforts between its faculty members and students. Applied research includes the design of microwave frequency selective structures, body-worn antennas, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), and Terahertz sources, sensors, and devices.  Such research also 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.
