DARMSTADT, GERMANY – The following papers received Computer Simulation Technology’s CST University Publication Award 2017, an annual prize given to university institutes and researchers for published papers involving applications of electromagnetic simulation:
“Dual-Band Electronically Beam-Switched Antenna Using Slot Active Frequency Selective Surface,” Chao Gu, Benito Sanz Izquierdo, Steven Gao, John C. Batchelor, Edward A. Parker, Fan Qin, Gao Wei, Jianzhou Li, and Jiadong Xu, IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, vol. 65, no. 3, March 2017.
“Chirping Techniques to Maximize the Power-Handling Capability of Harmonic Waveguide Low-Pass Filters,” Fernando Teberio, Ivan Arregui, Adrian Gomez-Torrent, Israel Arnedo, Magdalena Chudzik, Michael Zedler, Franz-Josef Görtz, Rolf Jost, Txema Lopetegi, and Miguel A. G. Laso, IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, vol. 64, no. 9, September 2016.
“Low-Profile Wideband Metasurface Antennas Using Characteristic Mode Analysis,” Feng Han Lin and Zhi Ning Chen; IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, vol. 65, no. 4, April 2017.
The Short Paper Award 2017 went to “Dual Circularly Polarized Series-Fed Microstrip Patch Array with Coplanar Proximity Coupling,” Shengjian Jammy Chen, Christophe Fumeaux, Yasuaki Monnai and Withawat Withayachumnankul, IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, vol. 16, January 2017.
For papers to be considered, they must be authored or coauthored by university researchers; they must have been published either in scientific journals or conference proceedings, and the numerical results must be entirely or partly obtained through simulations using CST software.
Submissions are evaluated on originality of application and theory, clarity of presentation, and the skillful use of CST software.
