IEEE APS is organizing the 13th Annual Student Design Competition this year in Denver. The topic for this year is “Miniaturized Antennas in IoT Applications”. Out of 30 submissions, only 6 teams have been selected as finalists in the competition. KAUST IMPACT Lab team, in collaboration with KU Leuven and UESTC, has qualified for the finals.
KAUST Research Conference on Extreme Bandwidth Communication: From mmWave, THz to Optical Bands was held in KAUST Library from March 21st to 23rd. In the conference's poster contest, Haoran and Yiyang won the first and second prizes among 16 strong competitors. Haoran's poster title is Wideband and Wide Beam-scanning Dual-Polarized Phased Array Antenna for 5G Applications.
