Computational Electromagnetics (CEM)

Department of electromagnetic field
Technicka 2, Prague

Who are we?

CEM group concentrates on theoretical research in classical electromagnetic theory. Among the currently developed topics belong radiation properties of electrically small radiators and scatterers and their optimizations. Members of the group have for many years been also involved in classical antenna theory and field propagation in artificial composite materials.

Our Research

Current research activities are strongly entangled with a “source concept” paradigm, in which all involved field quantities as well as engineering metrics are described solely in terms of electromagnetic sources. The idea of the source concept is sketched in the figure above.

Our Current Work

Our activities are focused on the following topics:

  • Current and Antenna Optimization
  • Characteristic Modes
  • Stored Energy and Quality Factor Q
  • Artificial Materials

Application Highlight

An electromagnetic field solver based on method of moments solution to field integral equations

Who Funds Our Research
