Simone Bastioli of RSMicro


Nonresonating Modes Do It Better!

The innovative concept of nonresonating modes and how this has been recently exploited to extend the performance and capabilities of the state-of-art of microwave filter technology will be presented in this talk. Although the concept is presented by mostly focusing on filters, as these are the components where this new technique has found large application over the past few years, all general features are explained and illustrated in detail thus potentially paving the way for new applications involving other passive microwave components


Dr. Bastioli is a current IEEE Young Professional (YP), and he was the recipient of the 2012 IEEE Microwave Prize for the invention of TM dual-mode cavities and nonresonating modes. He is the vice chair of the MTT-8 Filters and Passive Components Technical Committee, and he serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Microwave Magazine. In 2008, he was awarded with the Best Student Paper Award (First Place) at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS) held in Atlanta, GA, USA, and with the Young Engineers Prize at the European Microwave Conference held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In 2009, he was the recipient of the Hal Sobol Travel Grant presented at the IEEE MTT-S IMS held in Boston, MA, USA. He was also awarded the Young Scientist Distinction by the Polish Academy of Science at the 2014 MIKON International Conference held in Gdansk, Poland. His work resulted in several publications in international journals and conferences, as well as several patent applications.
