Free Software and Demo Videos:

Lund University has released a free software for characteristic mode analysis as well as video demos of commercial software’s CM feature. More info can be assessed in the Software page.


Upcoming Events:

1. Special Sessions on “Characteristic Modes 2.0 – From Fundamental Limits to 5G Antenna Systems” at the 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and CNC/USNC/URSI National Radio Science Meeting (IEEE APS/URSI2018) in Boston, MA, USA, 8-13 July 2018 (Co-conveners: Jacob Adams and Buon Kiong Lau).

2. The First Edition of the European School of Antenna (ESoA) Course on “Characteristic Modes: Theory and Applications” will be held in Valencia, Spain during 21-25 May 2018. The course is jointly organized by Universitat Politecnica de Valencia, Czech Technical University in Prague, Leibniz Universität Hannover and Lund University. Registration can be made by contacting Eva Antonino Daviu (evanda@upvnet.upv.es) or Pavel Hazdra (hazdrap@fel.cvut.cz). The course website with detailed information is available here. The course pamphlet is found here.

3. Convened Sessions on “Advances in Antenna Design and Analysis Using Characteristic Modes (Co-conveners: Kurt Schab and Eva Antonino Daviu) and “Advances in Theory and Computation of Characteristic Modes” (Co-conveners: Hiroyuki Arai and Miloslav Capek) at the 2018 European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP2018) in London, UK, 9-13 April, 2018.
