题目：Recent Development on Dense Dielectric Patch Antennas
报告人：Kwai Man Luk （陆贵文）, IEEE Fellow
Microstrip patch antennas have been extensively investigated in the past 3 decades due to their low-profile feature which can fulfil the stringent requirement imposed by modern wireless communication systems. They are however low in radiation efficiency when operating at higher microwave frequencies. Dielectric resonator antennas were proposed to solve the problem as they have less metallic loss, but they are not low in profile. The dense dielectric patch antenna was proposed, which encompasses the advantages of the microstrip patch antenna and dielectric resonator antenna. In this talk, the working principle of the dense dielectric patch antenna is described and its recent advance for millimeter wave application is presented. The development of water dielectric patch antennas for transparent electronics is discussed.
Professor Kwai Man Luk is currently Chair Professor of Electronic Engineering at the City University of Hong Kong. His recent research interests include design of wideband patch antennas, dielectric resonator antennas, microwave and antenna measurements, and millimeter wave technologies. He is the author of 4 books, 11 research book chapters, over 350 journal papers and 250 conference papers. He was awarded 8 US patents and over 10 PRC patents on the designs of various printed antennas. He is a Fellow of IEEE, IET, CIE, FEA and HKIE. He received the Japan Microwave Prize at the Asia Pacific Microwave Conference in 1994, the Applied Research Excellence Award of City University of Hong Kong in 2001, the Croucher Award of Hong Kong in 2003, the Best Student Paper Awards (with his students) at the Asia Pacific Microwave Conferences in 2005 and 2006, and the Best Paper Awards at the International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation in 2008 and at the IEEE 4th Asia Pacific Conference on Antennas and Propagation in 2015. He was awarded the State Technological Invention Award of China (2nd Honor) in January 2012. He received the prestigious John Kraus Antenna Field Award from IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society in 2017 for his invention of the magneto-electric dipole antenna and the L-probe fed patch antenna. He was the chief guest editor of a special issue on “Antennas in Wireless Communications” for Proceedings of the IEEE, published in July 2012. He is the guest editor of a special issue on “3D-printed antennas” for Applied Sciences, to be published in 2018. He is a deputy editor-in-chief of PIERS journals and an associate editor of IET Microwaves, Antennas and Propagation.
He is the Fellow Committee Chairman of the Electromagnetic Academy, and the Field Award Committee Chairman of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.
