During the past 20 years the Electromagnetics Group has been on the forefront of electromagnetic simulation techniques and theory. Much attention has been devoted both to the development of powerful simulation tools and to industrially relevant applications. Research results were reported in a large number of journal and conference publications and resulted in 25 PhDs.
Research in electromagnetics at Ghent University was initiated in 1964 by Prof. Jean Van Bladel with the founding of the Laboratory of Electromagnetism and Acustics. The research scope of the laboratory was very substantially broadened with the transformation to the present Department of Information Technology (INTEC) by Prof. Paul Lagasse. As part of INTEC the Electromagnetics Group is active in many areas of information and communication technology such as microwave and RF circuits, scattering, waveguides, packaging for digital systems, electromagnetic compatibility and immunity, passive optical components and indoor propagation. However, also other areas as remote sensing, imaging and numerical analysis play an important role.
The Electromagnetics Group invites you to browse through these pages. We have deliberately chosen to keep them as simple as possible. These pages give you an overview of our research topics, projects and facilities and the courses that we teach. Our staff page provides you access to the contact information of us all. If you yourself wish to reinforce our group, as a Ph.D. student or a member of our research team, please take a look at our job opportunities . Some of our electromagnetic simulation software development is open source as can be checked on the research topics page.
