Surfaces of natural and synthetic materials can have different colors, can reflect or absorb radio waves, can be hot or cold, can feel solid or soft when we touch them. It appears that the choice is wide, but our developing society needs new technologies which require materials with specific, application-defined properties. Moreover, future robots and […]
Engineered Materials (EnMats) allow advanced device functionalities to be achieved that are not possible in currently available RF and optical systems composed of conventional materials and designed with traditional methodologies. Efficient EnMat-enabled system design requires advanced optimization tools which transcend the current capabilities and limitations of commercially available software packages. These EnMat-enabled devices typically feature […]
The Organizing Committee is pleased to announce that URSI is giving technical support to the IWMbD2017.
In this talk, several strategies for the implementation of microwave sensors based on the use of metamaterial-inspired resonators are pointed out, and examples of applications, including sensors for dielectric characterization and sensors for the measurement of spatial variables, are provided. It will be also shown that novel microwave encoders for chipless RFID systems with very […]
The first call for papers has been published. Please see the following page for additional details.
