Announcing the 2017 YEP Award winners

The Yes! Education Program (YEP) Award, an initiative run by our partners AET Japan, grants an extended one-year license to universities that use CST software, in order to assist their research projects.

We spoke to this year's winners about their work and their experience with CST STUDIO SUITE the winners came from the National Defense Academy and the University of Yamanashi.


"A Linear Array Antenna of Microstrip Patch Antennas Fed by the Open-End of Coplanar Waveguides" by Toshihisa Kamei, Hiromi Shima, Syotaro Fukuda, Seishiro Ishii of the National Defense Academy 

Dr. Toshihisa Kamei
"It is our great pleasure that our recent paper [*] has been honored with the YEP Award. In this paper, we presented a 4-element linear array antenna using four 20 GHz band microstrip patch antennas. The signal is fed to the patch antennas from open-end coplanar waveguides without contact. We investigated factors related to the design of linear patch antenna arrays. Our group is working on communication, meteor burst communication systems, fundamental and
applied research of radio wave absorbers in the millimeter wave and microwave band from MHz to THz.
Our lab has been using CST for over 10 years. Based on the direct calculation along with realistic excitation ports and probes, we are able to model and investigate any novel structures on CST. CST STUDIO SUITE also serves as the best tool for our students to learn Maxwell’s equations and a common language. We believe that CST Software is very convenient for university education and research and allows quick testing of new and difficult ideas at a low cost.' - Dr. Toshihisa Kamei

“A Novel REBCO Wire Structure That Improves Coil Quality Factor in MHz Range and its Effect on Wireless Power Transfer Systems” by N. Sekiya and Y. Monjugawa of the University of Yamanashi

Dr. Sekiya's lab students
"We would be greatly honored to receive the CST YEP AWARD2017 for our published paper [*]. We also appreciate the cooperation between our lab students and CST support.

In this paper, we described the development and application of superconducting wire which realizes low losses at high frequencies. Conventional superconducting wire has no loss in direct current, but a high loss at high frequencies. That is why the application in this field has not developed. To solve this problem, we propose a new superconducting wire structure and investigate its effect through simulation and experimental verification.

Superconducting wire requires a substantial amount of time to calculate because they have a multilayer structure. As our lab had the small number of staff, we needed to proceed our research effectively. Under these circumstances, CST STUDIO SUITE helped us to proceed our research more efficiently. We will continue to use CST STUDIO SUITE to create innovative research." -Dr. Naoto Sekiya
