Below are our undergraduate electromagnetics offerings for the next academic year, along with tentative instructor plans. A few change-ups from last year. Prof Tentzeris is off teaching in the fall, so Durgin will cover this section of ECE 4350. We welcome GTRI Shackleford fellow teacher Joshua Kovitz as the guest instructor for ECE 4370 Antenna Engineering.
In less than 2 months, the IEEE RFID 2019 Conference will kick-off in beautiful San Diego, California. It is the 13 in the conference series and the 12-consecutive event that our group has attended. What started with an invite in 2008 to the Las Vegas conference by then TPC-chair Daniel Deavours has turned into an annual event for our group … and a haven for some of the best multi-disciplinary researchers in the IEEE community. Below is a list of the full-length papers that have been submitted over the years by our group (students bold-faced, as per GT curriculum vitae guidelines). There are 25 total papers to IEEE RFID (and 4 more to the related, international RFID-TA series):
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.”
