Designing microwave devices from scratch using computer simulations

Designing microwave devices from scratch using computer simulations

Press Releases   •   May 21, 2015 08:00 GMT

For decades, the design of microwave devices, like antennas for mobile communication and waveguides used in radars, has relied on the inventiveness of a professional designer. Computer simulations are usually used only in final design stages to fine-tune details in the design. This classical approach to microwave device design is challenged in the PhD thesis by Emadeldeen Hassan, Umeå University

Light-emitting electrochemical cells, LEC, is a newly invented lighting technology. In his thesis, physicist Amir Asadpoordarvish, Umeå University, shows how a LEC can be produced through spraying three layers of ink on a substrate and emit light by the current from an ordinary battery. LEC components can be sprayed onto complicated surfaces, for example to make a light-emitting fork.

According to Fariba Karimi, network scientist at Umeå University, analysis of massive online data can reveal what information matters to us and with whom we have most in common. For example, networks can be used to study how information travels from one part of the world to another. She defends her thesis on Friday 20 February.
