MEET THE CHALLENGE OF SMALL ANTENNAS DESIGN

Share

A seminar on the challanges of small antenna design by Prof. Ala Sharaiha - University of Rennes 1 & IETR, France


Electrically small antennas are generally less efficient and more challenging to design than longer antennas such as quarter- or half-wave antennas, but are nonetheless common due to their compact size and low cost. The main challange when designing such a radiator is that it would provide a high quality factor and consequently, a narrow banwidth.

The lecture will be held by Prof. Ala SHARAIHA from University of Rennes 1, France, Co-Head of the Antennas and Microwave Devices Department at the IETR research Laboratory (Institut d'Electronique et des Technologies du numéRique).

This virtual event will be technically supported by IEEE and Constanta Maritime University, Romania.

MEET THE CHALLENGE OF SMALL ANTENNAS DESIGN

Biography:

Ala Sharaiha received the Ph.D. and Habilitation à Diriger la Recherche (HDR) degrees in telecommunication from the University of Rennes 1, France, in 1990 and 2001 respectively. Currently, he is a Full Professor at the University of Rennes 1 and the Co-Head of the Antennas and Microwave Devices Department at the IETR research Laboratory (Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications in Rennes).
He has graduated/mentored more than 40 Ph.D. students/postdocs and co-authored with them. He has authored or co-authored more than 450 journal and conference papers, concerning antenna theory, analysis, design and measurements. He holds 12 patents. His published works have been cited over 2000 times in Google Scholar. His current research interests include small antennas, broadband and UWB antennas, reconfigurable antennas, printed spiral and helical antennas, absorbers, innovative materials for antennas and antennas for mobile communications.
He is presently a French delegate member of the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EuRAAP) and a member of the small antennas working group of EuRAAP. He is a senior member of the IEEE and is a reviewer for the IEEE APS, IEEE AWPL, the IET Letters and the IET Microwave Antennas Propagation. He was the conference Chairman of the 11th International Canadian Conference ANTEM (Antenna Technology and Applied Electro- Magnetics), held at Saint-Malo in France, 2005.
