New Publication: ‘Microwave Superdirectivity with Dimers of Helical Elements’

Congratulations to third year PGR Pavel Petrov, whose article ‘Microwave Superdirectivity with Dimers of Helical Elements’ was published yesterday in Physical Review Applied. Pavel summarises his article: This paper demonstrates experimental realisation of the subwavelength superdirective antenna that reaches close to theoretical maximum of directivity without using complex feeding network....

William Ferguson submits his thesis!

Congratulations to William Ferguson, the first of our 2016 cohort to submit their thesis. His thesis was titled ‘Auxetic power amplification mechanisms for low frequency vibration energy harvesting’. William was supervised by Prof. Meiling Zhu, Prof. Ken Evans and Prof. Christopher Smith. William has published two papers- ‘Student Perspectives On...
