Physically-insightful equivalent circuit models for electromagnetic periodic structures

Welcome to a seminar held by the Electromagnetics Laboratory (abbreviated EM-Lab), which is an assembly of senior researchers and teachers with activities in the scientific field of electromagnetics. EM-Lab is hosted by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers.​  
Spearker: Prof. Francisco Mesa, Microwaves Group, Department of Applied Physics 1, Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Informática, Universidad de Sevilla, Spain

Title: Physically-insightful equivalent circuit models for electromagnetic periodic structures

Biography: Bs. Sc and Ph. D. in Physics from University of Seville (Spain) in 1998 and 1991 respectively (Ph. D. thesis was awarded with “Best Science Thesis in 1991” by University of Seville). From 1989 to 1992 Francisco Mesa was Associate Researcher in Dpt. of Electronics & Electromagnetism (University of Seville). From 1992 to 1997 he was Assistant Professor in Dpt. of Applied Physics in the University of Seville, where he was promoted to Associate Professor in 1997 and to Full Professor in 2010. Between 1992 and 2004, he enjoys four stays in US universities, the first one in the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn (NY), and three more in University of  Houston collaborating with Prof. David R. Jackson. Since 1988 he is member of the Microwave Group of the University of Seville. This research group is currently led by Prof. Francisco Medina. During the first years of his research he worked on Computational Electromagnetism (integral equation method to analyze passive planar structures at microwave frequencies) as well as in diverse theoretical aspects of the wave propagation involved in these structures (mainly on the computation of Green’s functions for layered bianisotropic  structures and the dispersion relation of “exotic modes” in this structures; namely, complex modes and leaky modes). More recently he has been working in the modeling of metamaterials and periodic planar structures, contributing to the development of analytic (or quasi-analytic) equivalent circuits to characterize such structures and find physically-insightful explanations of some exotic phenomena (for instance, the extraordinary transmission/reflection, electromagnetic induced transparency, appearing of backward and forbidden bands, etc). 
From 01/01/2014 he is IEEE Fellow proposed by the IEEE MTT Society for “contributions to the theory and computation of of wave propagation in microwave planar structures”. He is also member of IEEE MTT-S Technical Committee MTT-15 (Microwave Field Theory).
