EXPLOITING SYMMETRIES IN ARTIFICIAL MATERIALS FOR ANTENNA APPLICATIONS
PARIS, SEPTEMBER 13-16 2021

A hybrid training event was organized at Sorbonne University for PhD students. The summer school “Exploiting symmetries in artificial materials for antenna applications” was part of the network of the European School of Antennas (ESoA). 23 trainees attended in site and 22 attended on-line. 7 trainers participated in site and five on-line. The material of the course has been made available to all the participants.

Subjects and Trainers

The course presented properties and applications of artificial materials exhibiting special symmetries and their applications to antennas and microwave devices:

  • the theory of glide- and twist-symmetric metamaterials and metasurfaces,
  • spatio-temporal symmetries, topology in electromagnetics and applications,
  • numerical methods and equivalent circuits for the analysis of these materials,
  • the design of lens antennas, of EBG materials, microwave filters and circuits,
  • applications to 5G/6G and satellite communications, as well as to automotive and aerospace applications.

 

The list of trainers includeed G. Valerio (Sorbonne Université), O. Quevedo-Teruel (KTH), E. Martini (University of Siena), E. Rajo-Iglesias (University Carlos III Madrid), A. Algaba BrazálezL. Manholm and M. Johansson (Ericsson), S. Horsely (University of Exeter), F. Mesa (University of Seville), Z. Sipus (University of Zagreb), M. G. Silveirinha (University of Lisbon), A. Alù (City College of New York). Some of the trainers gave classes remotely.
