讲座人介绍

Raj Mittra is a Professor in the Electrical Engineering department of the Pennsylvania State University, where he is the Director of the Electromagnetic Communication Laboratory. Prior to joining Penn State he was a Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois in Urbana Champaign from 1957 through 1996, when he moved to his present position at the Penn State University.
He is a Life Fellow of the IEEE, a Past-President of AP-S, and he has served as the Editor of the Transactions of the Antennas and Propagation Society. He won the Guggenheim Fellowship Award in 1965, the IEEE Centennial Medal in 1984, and the IEEE Millennium Medal in 2000. Other honors include the IEEE/AP-S Distinguished Achievement Award in 2002, the Chen-To Tai Education Award in 2004 and the IEEE Electromagnetics Award in 2006, and the IEEE James H. Mulligan Award in 2011. He has been a Visiting Professor at Oxford University, Oxford, England and at the Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark.
Dr. Mittra specializes in the design of electromagnetic systems such as radars, satellite antennas, communication systems, microwave and millimeter wave integrated circuits and instruments for remote sensing and geophysical prospecting. He has published over 1000 technical papers and more than 30 books or book chapters on various topics related to Electromagnetics, Antennas, Microwaves and Electronic Packaging. He is one of the top highly-cited researchers in Electromagnetics, as evidenced by the Citation index compiled by Thomson Scientific, Google and others. He has advised more than 125 Ph.D. and an equal number of M.S. thesis students over the years, and has mentored more than 60 postdocs. He also has three patents on Communication Antennas to his credit. For the last 15 years he has directed, as well as lectured in, numerous short-course on Computational Electromagnetics, Electronic packaging, Wireless Antennas, RFID, Metamaterials, etc., both nationally and internationally. He has also served on a number of government panels on antenna designs and evaluation of Computational Electromagnetics codes.


讲座内容

Ever since ET, we have been intrigued by the prospect of communicating with life in other planets. Of course, in order for that to happen, we have to find these creatures first, or they have to locate us. Despite a worldwide network of enthusiasts who communicate via social networks and compare notes on UFO sightings and such, we have not really had success in locating such life to date, and the search for life in other planets and distant galaxies continue unabated.
A few years ago, this effort received international recognition, and substantial funding from a consortium of 20 nations, and the SKA (Square Kilometer Array) organization was founded. Just as the name implies, the people involved in this unique radio astronomy project are building array antennas that span over squares of kilometers giving them the sensitivity to receive signals which originated billions of light years back, starting all the way from the “big bang.” In this talk we will take a sneak peek at the status of the SKA, and see how this project is progressing around the world, especially in the two countries that are leaders in the field, namely Australia and the Netherlands.
Of course we need to communicate not only in outer space but also down on the earth. We begin by observing the fact that today's children are growing up in the world of video games, twitter, Facebook and such. And intriguing idea--that is not as far-fetched as one might think--is to communicate to the PlayStation on the computer, not in the usual way by manipulating the controller with our hands, but by using brain waves instead. Given this background, the talk will take a quick look at what is happening in this challenging world of communication with machines-- but not in the old-fashioned way like your parents did.
Finally, as we well know, the world of communication today is exploding in new directions that we never even imagined a few years ago, when we were only communicating the “usual" ways. In this talk we will discuss some recent developments in high data-rate communication, and speculate on some future directions.
