Full-wave interconnect modelling for bit rates beyond 25 Gbit/s Ghent University
The research goal is to extend the quasi-TM model, based on the Dirichlet-to-Neumann (DtN) operator, to the full-wave regime. By operating in the frequency domain, the techniques account for frequency-dependent material properties. It is also investigated how different roughness models can be incorporated in the Dtn representation of the conductors.
The association between national and local directives of arbitrary radiofrequency exposure limits and personal radiofrequency electromagnetic field (RF-EMF) exposure: an international comparison Ghent University
The objective of the proposed research activity is to perform an international cross-comparison between Belgium, The Netherlands and Switzerland in order to evaluate the impact of national and local directives regarding radiofrequency exposure limits on the personal exposure of the population. These three countries have implemented different exposure limits at national and even at regional level.
Methodology and design of a low-power 100G througput multi-channel opto-electronic modulator driver array Ghent University
As the capacity demands for telecommunications continue to grow exponentially, the energy consumption of the network increases super-linearly with capacity. New technologies are under development, but no good design methodology exists to solve the multidisciplinary challenges. Such a new methodology will be conceived, and applied to the design of arrayed electro-optical devices that can handle multiple 10 or 25Gbit/s channels.
Fast multipole methods for electromagnetic scattering at objects composed of complex materials Ghent University
In this project we want to develop a fast multipole full-wave algorithm for the simulation of wave propagation in complex materials. In this context complex materials refer to materials with losses, negative permittivities and/or anisotropic materials. Each of these three extensions of the existing fast multipole methods has specific applications and is confronted with very specific computational problems.
