Update: “Antennas for 5G and beyond”
Abstract: This talk presents a review of some current work conducted at Queen Mary University of London, related to antenna technologies for 5G and beyond. I will start with the introduction of antenna basics, fundamental limits, and requirements for 5G wireless communications. Radio propagations for millimeter wave frequencies will be introduced with an emphasis on the role of creeping and surface waves in wireless communications at high frequencies. Finally, antenna beamforming and new lens antennas will be presented with some demonstrations using 3D printed antenna systems.
