Prof. Ahmed Kishk, UWB Antennas for Wireless Communication and Detection Applications, 19th August 2015.
You are cordially invited to the following IEEE AP-S Distinguished Lecture hosted by the IEEE South Australia Chapter on AP-MTT & CAES ABSTRACT Ultra-wide band (UWB) wireless communication occupies a bandwidth from 3.1 to 10.6 GHz, referred to as UWB band, to achieve high data rate over a short distance. Two competing schemes, namely multiband […]
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Carsten Markgraf, Parameter Optimization by doing Automated Tests with Formula Student Electric (FSE) Racing Cars , 27th August 2015.
Abstract: For FSE events students build an electric, single seat formula race car with which they can compete against teams from all over the world. The competition is not won solely by the team with the fastest car, but rather by the team with the best overall package of construction, performance, and financial and sales […]
S.J. Chen, Highly efficient and flexible antennas realized in conductive polymers, 13th August 2015.
Abstract: Since the initial report of electrical conductivity in polymer materials in 1977, conductive polymers have been developed with steadily improving electrical conductivity and mechanical flexibility. Despite the challenges of simultaneously achieving sufficient thickness and satisfactory conductivity, they can be now considered as a new class of promising conductive materials for conformal applications which […]
Prof. Madhu S. Gupta, Microwave Engineering: What is it, where is it headed, and how it serves the mankind, 6th August 2015
You are cordially invited to the following IEEE MTT-S Distinguished Lecture hosted by the IEEE South Australia Chapter on AP-MTT ABSTRACT What is RF and Microwave Engineering: how and why it is different from low-frequency or optical engineering; what are its theoretical underpinnings; to what applications is microwave engineering put, and what makes microwaves particularly […]
Abstract: Brain computer interfaces (BCIs) enable human brains to interact directly with machines. Motor imagery based BCI (MI-BCI) encodes the motor intentions of human agents and provides feedback accordingly. However, 15–30% of people are not able to perform vivid motor imagery. To save time and monetary resources, a number of predictors have been proposed […]
Abstract: Micron-scale passive grounded quarter-wave electric monopole antennas can be constructed by direct-drawing a polymer into micropillars, prior to metallisation. This technique is proposed for the realisation of a homogeneous 2D array of passive electric monopoles, with an operating frequency of 0.5 THz, that couples obliquely. Biography: Daniel Headland earned a Bachelor of Engineering […]
Abstract Although unique potentials of terahertz waves for chemical identification, material characterization, biological sensing, and medical imaging have been recognized for quite a while, the relatively poor performance, higher costs, and bulky nature of current terahertz systems continue to impede their deployment in field settings. In this talk, I will describe some of our recent […]
