The Radiation Laboratory sponsors frequent technical seminars, oral defenses and other events during the academic year. The main object of Radlab seminars and events is to broaden the learning experience of our graduate students by introducing diverse research topics in applied electromagnetics and RF engineering. The Radlab seminars are presented by outstanding speakers chosen from academia, government research laboratories, and industry. The talks cover a wide range of areas including but not limited to Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Circuits, RF MEMS, Antennas, Wave Propagation Studies for Wireless Applications, Computational Electromagnetics, and EM Metamaterials. Inquiries regarding the Radlab seminars should be directed to Prof. Mahta Moghaddam (, (734) 764-0500).
