Senior PhD candidate Mohammad Alhassoun visited the 2019 IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference (CCNC) in Las Vegas, NV. There he presented a paper on the unique small-scale fading properties of a retrodirective backscatter channel. These channels have garnered a lot of interest lately due to their low-powered, long-distance link capabilities, which excites the “Internet of Things” community. Below are the slides from the talk, entitled “Spatial Fading in Backscatter Channels: Theory and Models.”

For students planning their grad classes in electromagnetics next year, the current slate of offerings is included below. Note that some of these courses have been moved to every other year to accommodate teaching burdens (at the moment, we are suffering a shortage of faculty instructors compared to student interest in these courses).
This lecture provides a quick overview of magnetic materials (for more in-depth coverage, check out this undergraduate lecture on magnetic materials). The final segment discusses the use of some special magnetic materials in electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems and other RFID applications.
