CST interviews Xiaodong Chen, Professor of Microwave Engineering at QMUL

Xiaodong Chen, Professor of Microwave Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London, recently came to the CST headquarters to discuss with us how researchers at Queen Mary use electromagnetic simulation in their research. Chen is a member of the Antennas and Electromagnetics Research Group at Queen Mary, as well as being a CST co-operation partner. We took the opportunity to ask him a few questions about how CST STUDIO SUITE has helped him and his group carry out their work.

CST Interview Series Celebrates Researchers

Research is a cornerstone of the modern world, and we at CST are proud that our software is used in universities and laboratories worldwide. Researchers are among the most innovative users of our products, and every year we give the CST University Publication Award to acknowledge the importance of their work. 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the Award, and to celebrate, we’ve invited past winners, along with some of our university co-operation partners, to discuss their work with us.

The series will be kicking off on Monday, 15 April with a short interview with Xiaodong Chen, Professor of Microwave Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London, who will be telling us about how his group used CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® to design an innovative antenna for an experimental mini-satellite.

Further interviews will follow in the weeks to come. To stay up-to-date with the latest news, articles and updates from CST, you can follow us on the social network of your choice:

Want to know the future of in-flight connectivity? Or perhaps you’re simply keen on uncovering the key element of a well-designed radar or RFID? As diverse as these technologies are, you are likely to run into one common element that defines their performance – antennas. 

CST is a platinum sponsor of EuCAP, European Conference on Antennas and Propogation, which this year will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden from April 8-12. Borrowing the catch-phrase of the host city Gothenburg, EuCAP encourages visitors to ‘go: use your antennas’. We’ve taken this call-to-action literally with our Advanced Antenna System Simulation workshop enabling you to do just that - use your antennas:  
This workshop will consist of various application examples and live demonstrations. All aspects of the antenna design workflow will be discussed, from making the right choice of antenna type and its initial dimensioning, through to choosing the optimal solver technology and optimizing the antenna performance for a specific application. The design of feeding and matching circuits will be discussed, along with multiphysics effects, human exposure to fields, and finally the antenna placement in its environment.
Not only will we be conducting this workshop, but CST will be joined with expert engineers from Magus Pty Ltd, developers of leading antenna synthesis tool Antenna Magus, to show visitors how simulation can help greatly in creating and testing antennas against the desired specifications.

We will be available at booth #29 and #30 to discuss antenna simulation and answer questions regarding Antenna Magus as well as our entire range of antenna simulation tools, including our flagship software CST MICROWAVE STUDIO®, and our partners’ products; Optenni Lab, EMIT, and Savant.
We're looking forward to seeing you there!
