Terahertz Days: Integral equation approaches to periodic and non-periodic problems: from phased arrays to metasurfaces


The growing complexity of electromagnetic devices calls for a numerical approach to the solution of Maxwell's equations.  Among the available numerical techniques, integral-equation formulations are quite attractive because they are very efficient for open domains and because, through the exploitation of Green's functions, they appear as a natural extension of analytical and physical reasoning.

This presentation will show a class of integral-equation methods developed for mutual-coupling analysis in phased arrays and for modal analysis in meta-surfaces. In particular, we will show that specific hybridization between space-domain and spectral-domain approaches can lead to efficient tools for both analysis and design.

 Christophe Craeye Christophe Craeye


Christophe Craeye was born in Belgium in 1971. He received the Electrical Engineering and B.Phil. degrees from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, and the Ph.D. degree in applied sciences from UCL, in 1994 and 1998, respectively. From 1994 to 1999, he was a Teaching Assistant with UCL and carried out research on the radar signature of the sea surface perturbed by rain, in collaboration with NASA and ESA. From 1999 to 2001, he was a Post-Doctoral Researcher with the Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. He was with the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA, USA, in 1999. He was with the Netherlands Institute for Research in Astronomy, Dwingeloo, The Netherlands, in 2001. In 2002, he started an antenna research activity with UCL, where he is currently a Professor. He was with the Astrophysics and Detectors Group, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, U.K., in 2011. His research was funded by the Region Wallonne, European Commission, ESA, FNRS, and UCL. His current research interests include mutual coupling, finite antenna arrays, wideband antennas, small antennas, metamaterials, fast physical optics and numerical methods for fields in periodic media, with applications to communication and sensing systems. Dr. Craeye received the 2005-2008 Georges Vanderlinden Prize from the Belgian Royal Academy of Sciences, in 2009. He was an Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ANTENNAS AND PROPAGATION from 2004 to 2010 and for the IEEE ANTENNAS AND WIRELESS PROPAGATION LETTERS from 2011 to 2017.
