In the recent IEEE International Microwave Symposium, our Ph.D. Student Ping ZHAO (Year 2) received a best student paper award, honorable mention, at the 2014 IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS2014) for his work on analytical optimal synthesis of microwave diplexer and multiplexer.
The paper, “An Analytical Approach to Synthesis of Diplexers with an Optimal Lumped-element Junction Model”, co-authored by Ping’s supervisor, Prof. Ke-Li WU, presented an elegant approach to this long-time outstanding issue in the wireless microwave industry. The proposed approach provides a means to optimally synthesize multiplexers analytically, rather than by brute force non-linear optimization.
The paper was selected from 266 student papers and was recognized as one of the top 10 student papers presented at the IMS 2014 conference, which is the flagship conference of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S). Members of MTT-S are engaged in research, development, design, or manufacturing of high frequency materials, devices, circuits, components, or systems. The IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS) is the premier annual international meeting for technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice.
