ESL Students Take Top Honors in AP-S Student Paper Competition
ESL graduate students Ioannis Tzanidis and Kenneth Browne received the top two of three awards at the 2010 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) Student Paper Competition. This is the first time that Ohio State students won the top two awards in this prestigious and extremely competitive annual competition. Nearly 1570 papers, from members of hundreds of universities, were presented at the conference.
The winners were announced on 14 July 2010 at the evening banquet of the 2010 International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and URSI Radio Science Meeting, held in Toronto, Canada. They are:
- Ioannis Tzanidis, a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering and graduate research associate at the ElectroScience Laboratory, received first place for his paper, An Interweaved Spiral Array (ISPA) Providing a 10:1 Bandwidth over a Ground Plane, by I. Tzanidis, K. Sertel and J. L. Volakis.
- Second place went to Kenneth Browne, doctoral student in electrical and computer engineering, for his paper, High Resolution Radar Imaging Utilizing a Portable Opportunistic Sensing Platform by K. E. Browne, R. J. Burkholder and J. L. Volakis.
- In addition, Justin Kasemodel, a doctoral student in electrical and computer engineering and graduate research associate at the ElectroScience Laboratory, was one of the 15 finalists who competed for the same best paper award. His paper is entitled Low-Cost, Planar and Wideband Phased Array with Integrated Balun and Matching Network for Wide-Angle Scanning by J. A. Kasemodel, C-C. Chen and J. L. Volakis.
