Electrical and computer engineering graduate students Mustafa Kuloglu and Ugur Olgun won second and third place in the Antennas Measurement Techniques Association’s Student Paper Contest. The awards were presented on October 13, during the AMTA’s conference in Atlanta, GA.
Mustafa Kuloglu received second place in the student paper contest for his paper, A Measurement Technique for Characterizing Antennas with Low Cross Polarization. He is advised by Prof. Robert Burkholder and Dr. Chi-Chih Chen. Kuloglu is a PhD student and graduate research associate at the ElectroScience Laboratory. His research interests include numerical methods for electromagnetics and optics, ultra-wideband antenna designs for antenna and RCS ranges, and ground penetrating radar systems. He also works on measurement techniques for antenna characterization.
Ugur Olgun received third place in the contest for his paper, RF Power Harvesting with Multiple Rectenna Elements for Battery-less RFID Sensors. He is advised by Dr. Chi-Chih Chen and Prof. John L. Volakis. Olgun is a PhD student and graduate research associate at the ElectroScience Laboratory. His research interests include RFIDs, rectennas and wireless power harvesting. He also recently won the Third Annual John D. and Alice Nelson Kraus Memorial Student Poster Competition at Ohio State.
