Michigan students dominated the AP-S Student Paper Competition at the 2009 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas & Propagation and USNC/URSI National Radio Science Meeting, held June 1-5, 2009.

Of the 16 papers that were named as finalists from the 160 submitted, 5 were written by electrical engineering students from Michigan. One took home top honors, and one was an undergraduate student! To be eligible for the award, students must be first authors on the papers, and the faculty author's role must be purely advisory.

Earning best paper award was Amit M. Patel, with his paper, "A Printed Leaky-Wave Antenna with a Sinusoidally Modulated Surface Reactance" co-authored by Prof. Anthony Grbic.

Carl Pfeiffer just finished his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering, and begins his graduate studies in the fall. He wrote, "A 2D broadband, printed Luneburg lens antenna," which was co-authored by Prof. Anthony Grbic.

Other finalists were Mark Haynes and Xueyang (Jessy) Duan, advised by Prof. Mahta Moghaddam, and Mohammadreza F. Imani, advised by Prof. Anthony Grbic.
