ESF Research Networking Programme "NEWFOCUS"

NEWFOCUS Science Meetings

MM Days - 2011, Espoo, Finland

Special Session " New frontiers in mm/sub-mm waves integrated dielectric focusing systems "

during the 6th ESA Workshop on Millimetre-Wave Technology and Applications and the 4th Global Symposium on Millimeter Waves held in the frame of MM-wave Days 2011 (23-25 May 2011, Espoo, Finland).

Session Organizers: R. Sauleau (France) and A.V. Boriskin (Ukraine)

This session will contain up to 10 oral papers plus possibly a few posters describing the very recent results in the field of mm and sub-mm technologies.

The main topics of the session are:

  • integrated dielectric-based antennas,
  • beam forming or beam steering antennas (including reflectors, lenses, etc.),
  • dielectric or metal-dielectric lenses and focusing systems,
  • modelling techniques for the analysis and synthesis of the aforementioned devices.

All interested are invited to contribute to the NEWFOCUS session with a paper addressing the progress in thier research domain with a particular emphasis on thier own and their lab achievements related to the NEWFOCUS research field.

The important dates are:

  • Abstract (1 page) due: February 11, 2011 => NEW DEALINE: February 25, 2011
  • Final paper (max 6 pages) due: April 8, 2011
  • Conference dates: May 23-25, 2011 (Espoo, Finland)
