2018-07-17 Yikai Chen and his team organized the “2018 Workshop on Characteristic Modes Theory and Applications” at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in Chengdu, China on 17 July 2018. There were three hour-long talks, focusing on the development of the theory behind characteristic modes for dielectric as well as some specific applications. Apart from the professors, about 70 local and international students attended the event. A detailed description of the workshop in Mandarin is available here. A photo of the professors participating in the event is shown below.
