Overview of Electromagnetic Selective Structures (Prof. Zhongxiang Shen, NTU-Singapore)

Share

IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Distinguished Lecture (in-person & online)


In this talk, we intend to provide a brief overview of electromagnetic selective surfaces/structures (EMSS). According to the properties of an incident electromagnetic wave, EMSS can be divided into four categories: frequency-selective structure (FSS), polarization-selective surface (PSS), angle-selective surface (ASS), and energy-selective surface (ESS). Recent developments and advances in the design of EMSS will also be briefly introduced. Finally, future opportunities in the areas of the design and analysis of EMSS will be suggested.

Biography:

Zhongxiang Shen received the B. Eng. degree from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China, in 1987, the M. S. degree from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in 1990, and the PhD degree from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, in 1997, all in electrical engineering.

From 1990 to 1994, he was with Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China. He was with Com Dev Ltd., Cambridge, Canada, as an Advanced Member of Technical Staff in 1997. He spent six months each in 1998, first with the Gordon McKay Laboratory, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, and then with the Radiation Laboratory, the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, as a Postdoctoral Fellow. In Jan. 1999, he joined Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, as an assistant professor, where he is currently a full professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Dr. Shen served as the Chair of the IEEE MTT/AP Singapore Chapter in 2009. From Jan. 2010 to Aug. 2014, he was the Chair of IEEE AP-S Chapter Activities Committee. From July 2014 to December 2018, he served as the Secretary of IEEE AP-S. He was an elected AdCom member of the IEEE AP-S from Jan. 2017 to Dec. 2019. He is currently serving as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation. From Jan. 2021 to Dec. 2023, he is a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE AP-S.

Prof. Shen is an IEEE Fellow. His research interests include small and planar antennas for various wireless communication systems, analysis and design of frequency-selective structures and absorbers, hybrid numerical techniques for modeling RF/microwave components and antennas. He has authored more than 220 journal papers (among them 170 were published in IEEE Journals) and also presented nearly 200 papers at international conferences.
