Dr. Vinay Kumar Killamsetty, a postdoctoral fellow in our group, has been awarded the Young Scientist Best Paper Award in the International Conference on Electromagnetics in Advanced Applications (ICEAA 2019) and IEEE-APS Topical Conference on Antennas and Propagation in Wireless Communications (APWC 2019) joint conference, held in Granada, Spain, on September.
The prize was awarded to him for his paper “Exploiting the properties of metagratings for designing rectangular waveguide mode converters”.
Liran Biniashvili, M.Sc. student in the group, has been selected as a finalist in the prestigious Student Paper Competition of the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting (APS/URSI 2019), held in Atlanta, GA, on July. His paper, entitled “Metagrating-Inspired Approach for Suppressing Reflections in H-Plane Waveguide Bends”, was evaluated to be in the top 5% of all the papers submitted to the competition (~200), and was presented in a dedicated poster session.
