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.
1. Convened Sessions on “CS40 Progress in the Application of Characteristic Modes Analysis” (Co-conveners: Danie Ludick and Werner L. Schroeder) and “CS3 Generalized MoM-based Eigenvalue Problems for Antennas and Scattering” (Co-conveners: Mats Gustafsson and Kurt Schab) at the 2019 European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP2019) in Krakow, Poland, 31 March – 5 April 2019.
2. Special Session on “Theory and Applications of Characteristic Modes” at the URSI Commission B International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory (EMTS 2019) in San Diego, USA, 27 – 31 May 2019 (Co-conveners: Deb Chatterjee and Ahmed M. Hassan).
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.
