报告题目：Antenna Design: Early History, Basic Considerations, and Recent Developments
报告人：Prof. Shen Zhongxiang Nanyang Technological University
In this talk, the following topics will be covered.
The early history of antenna development will be briefly introduced.
Three important and innovative antennas will be highlighted and they are Yagi-Uda antenna, slot antenna, and microstrip antenna.
Basic considerations of antenna design will be provided.
Recent developments, such as design of small antennas, implanted antennas, multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antennas, metamaterial-inspired antennas, and novel antenna arrays, will be briefly reviewed.
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 early 1999, he joined Nanyang Technological University (NTU), 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. He was the Chair of IEEE AP-S Chapter Activities Committee from Jan. 2010 to July 2014. He served as the Secretary of the IEEE AP-S from July 2014 to Dec. 2018 and is currently serving as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation.
Prof. Shen is an IEEE Fellow. His research interests include design of small and planar antennas for various wireless communication systems, analysis and design of frequency-selective structures, hybrid numerical techniques for modeling RF/microwave components and antennas. He has authored or co-authored more than 180 journal papers (more than 100 were published in IEEE journals) and presented more than 160 conference papers.
