ECE Grad Student Receives Best Paper Award at IEEE APS Conference
Jonathan Doane, a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering and a graduate research associate at the ElectroScience Laboratory, received the best student paper award for the 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI National Radio Science Meeting in Chicago. Doane received the award out of 160 submissions from around the world.
The award-winning paper, entitled “6.3:1 Bandwidth Scanning Tightly Coupled Dipole Array with Co-Designed Compact Balun” is co-authored by Jonathan Doane, Kubilay Sertel and John L. Volakis.
Doane earned his BSEE (1999) and MSEE (2001) from Michigan Technological University. He worked as an antenna engineer at Rockwell Collins' Advanced Technology Center in Cedar Rapids, IA before attending Ohio State to pursue his PhD and conduct research at the ElectroScience Laboratory. He is co-advised by John Volakis, Chope Chair professor and director of the ElectroScience Laboratory; and Kubilay Sertel, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering. His research interests are in antenna theory and ultrawideband array design.
Two other student members of the ElectroScience Laboratory were among the top 15 finalists in the competition, Jiangong Wei and Caleb Waltz. Their papers are:
“Discontinuous Galerkin finite element simulation with polyhedral elements,” by Caleb Waltz and Jin-Fa. Lee.
“A hierarchical multilevel fast multipole method of wideband multiscale electromagnetic wave scattering from non-penetrable targets in R3” by Jiangong Wei, Zhen Peng & Jin-Fa. Lee.
