Amit Patel, a third year doctoral student in the Electrical Engineering
program, was awarded a 2010 Science, Mathematics & Research for
Transformation (SMART) Fellowship to support his research in the area of
Patel is working with Prof.
Anthony Grbic on the theory and development of textured electromagnetic
surfaces. The impedance of the surfaces is manipulated in order to control
guided waves and directional radiation. Low profile and high directivity
antennas based on these surfaces are being developed.
