Applied Electromagnetics:

The group focuses on fundamental and applied research for the development of:

  1. Self-adapting conformal phased array antennas;
  2. Metamaterial-based antenna designs for Radio Frequency Identification Systems;
  3. Reconfigurable antenna systems;
  4. Efficient computational electromagnetic techniques for problems with both electrically large and electrically small regions, and
  5. Mitigating electromagnetic interference.

Current research themes:

Today, wireless systems are used by millions of people around the globe to share information with others, track inventory, measure environmental variables (temperature, humidity, vibration, fields) and energy harvesting. Moreover, engineers and scientist are applying these wireless systems to ever more complex environments.  Some of these environments may subject wireless systems to extreme heat, severe wind stress, dramatic temperature changes over short periods of time and surface deformations. Because of these conditions, the need for more robust and adaptive wireless systems is critical.  The Applied Electromagnetics group at NDSU is uniquely suited to study these complex wireless systems and focuses particularly on the fundamental and applied research for the development of:

  1. Self-adapting conformal phased array antennas;
  2. Metamaterial-based antenna designs for Radio Frequency Identification Systems;
  3. Reconfigurable antenna systems;
  4. Efficient computational electromagnetic techniques for problems with both electrically large and electrically small regions, and
  5. Mitigating electromagnetic interference.

To carry out this research, the Applied Electromagnetics group has access to full-wave 3-dimensional electromagnetic software for modeling the complex electromagnetics problems, state of the art microwave device test equipment, a full anechoic chamber and electronics manufacturing equipment for prototyping.

Group members: Benjamin Braaten, David Rogers, Ivan T. Lima, Jr.
