The Loughborough Antennas and Propagation Conference
13 - 14 November 2017, Loughborough, UK
The beginning of next week will see researchers in Antennas and Propagation from across the world come together in Loughborough to discuss the current and future research agenda in this important field. LAPC was initiated in 2005 by a team from Loughborough University. This year, for the first time, the IET will run the conference. Several colleagues from SYMETA will be attend.
On Monday 13th November 2017 at 14.00 Symeta's Project Engineer, Dr Darren Cadman will be giving an invited talk on Meta-atoms for 3D printing metamaterials. The talk will provide a detailed overview of the project to date.
SYMETA researchers Dr Andrea Vallechi, Professor Chris Steves and Professor Katya Shamonina from the University of Oxford will be presenting a poster on Analytical formulation for the capacitance of 3D square split ring resonators. The same team have a two further posters Wireless power transfer in the presence of a conducting interface: An analytical solution and Superdirective meta-arrays at telecommunication wavelengths.
Loughborough-based SYMETA PhD student, Tom Whittaker, together with Professor Yiannis and Vardaxoglou and Dr Will Whittow will be presenting a poster Equivalent circuit analysis for 3D metamaterials with fringing field correction factor. Yiannis and Will have a second poster with C-K Lee and S Bukhari Optimisation of the Q factor of a complementary frequency selective surface.
Whilst not directly related to SYMETA, Dr Will Whittow, a Co-investigator on a our project will be presenting a poster Specific absorption rate and efficiency of a wideband wearable monopole antenna near the human body with P. Rayner. Will will also be presenting a poster Design and Characterization of a three material anatomical bone phantom for implanted antenna applications with colleagues S. Symeonidis and C Panagamuwa.
LAPC is presenting a busy and diverse programme. If you are attending look out for our SYMETA colleagues who would be happy to chat to you about the project.
