The complete team of the Electromagnetics research group would like to welcome you to these web pages.
The group has as its mission to perform ground-breaking research and offer top-class academic courses on the fundamentals of Electromagnetic fields and their application in Electrical and Applied Physics Engineering. Current research topics range from the computational solution of Maxwell’s equations for extremely large and complex simulation geometries, over the design of active antenna systems and the characterization of radio wave propagation, to Electromagnetic Compatibility and Signal/Power Integrity.
Originally founded in 1964 by Prof. Jean Van Bladel, the Electromagnetics group has extended its strong theoretical foundations with more application-driven research under the impulse of Prof. Daniël De Zutter, who led the team for over 20 years, up to his retirement in February 2017. The group is now an integral part of IDLab, and as such affiliated to imec. These strong connections provide exciting opportunities for cross-fertilization and for the initiation of multi-disciplinary research initiatives.
We see our contributions to excellent academic education in Electromagnetics at both the Bachelor and Master level as our top priority. Therefore, we offer a wide range of courses to form the next generation of Applied Physics and Electrical Engineers.
Please also have a look at our current research topics, describing how we tackle the fundamental and application-oriented challenges related to multiphysics modelling, the 5G wireless communication system, body-centric communication and the Internet of Things. For this, we collaborate within different projects with other leading universities, research institutions and industrial partners. Furthermore, we have all research facilities available to support our research results by experimental and computational validation.
