EM-lab seminar: Optimal Currents and Shape Synthesis in Electromagnetism

​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.​
Speaker: Professor Miloslav Capek, Czech Technical University in Prague, Department of Electromagnetic Field, Czech Republic

Title: Optimal Currents and Shape Synthesis in Electromagnetism

Abstract: Dealing with all antenna characteristics solely by means of currents flowing on the antenna body opens new possibilities of how to reformulate old, yet unsolved, problems in classical electromagnetics, particularly in the theory and design of electrically small radiators. A key part of the talk is, therefore, an introduction of the so-called source concept which involves diverse methods of calculation, decomposition, and the modification of electric and magnetic currents, i.e., the sources. It will be demonstrated how – thanks to knowledge gained in the last ten years – we are slowly, but surely, approaching a point at which a complete antenna synthesis will be possible. One of the exciting novelties within the source concept, topology sensitivity for the method of moments, will be discussed in detail, including its implementation and examples. A precise and efficient numerical implementation of source concept is an inevitable part of its practically-oriented development. With respect to this, the MATLAB toolbox AToM, currently being developed at CTU in Prague, will be presented. The talk will conclude with other perspectives of the topic and questions to be addressed in the near future.
