In a joint venture, the Antennas and Propagation Society and the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society of the IEEE Columbus Chapter held the 2018 Student Poster Competition at the ElectroScience Laboratory at The Ohio State University Nov. 15.

The research focus this year centered upon antennas (analysis, design, development, measurement, testing); radiation, propagation, and interaction of electromagnetic waves with media; circuits, sensors, devices and systems; applications pertinent to antennas, propagation, circuits, and sensing.

Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) graduate students, as well as students from surrounding universities and laboratories, present their related research for review by faculty and peers.

This year, the first place doctoral presentation went to Ph.D. student Wei Jian Foo for "Compact, Conformal Wideband Phased Array for 5G Mobile Applications."

The first place Master's presentation was Nicholas Everett for the work, "Instantaneous Bandwidth Expansion Using Software Defined Radios."

Second place went to Ph.D. student Yingyang Wang for the work "Delta - Sigma Noise-Shaping in Multi-Dimensional Space-Time for Wideband Antenna Array Receivers."

Lucas Newton, Ph.D. student, earned third place for his presentation "Reconfigurable Multiband FarIR Notch Filter Employing Phase Change Material."

Best posters are identified by reviewers during the event based on their content, significance, originality, presentation and overall recommendation. Up to four winners are acknowledged with Best Poster Certificates, receiving monetary awards.
