The Computational Electromagnetic Lab has the task of maintaining the computational electromagnetism know-how of the company at the state of the art, with special emphasis on numerical methods. The Lab performs applied research and collaborates with universities and public and private research institutes. It develops and validates calculation codes and functions as a bridge between the spheres of research and practical application, approaching new problems and supplying the IDS Divisions with the best possible instruments for the “industrial” management of problems.
The Computational Electromagnetic Lab currently consists of 5 telecommunications engineers specialised in electromagnetism. It continually makes use of external collaborators to deal with specific collateral problems.
Research & Application Areas
In terms of calculation methods, the Computational Electromagnetic Lab mainly deals with full-wave numerical methods for the 3D modelling of antennas and structures (Method of Moments, Finite Element ...). In collaboration with the High Frequency Laboratory, it develops hybrid methods with asymptotic techniques to manage high frequency problems.
The main application sectors of reference are: antenna modelling and design, antenna siting on platforms such as avionic, space, naval etc, problems regarding EMC, HIRF, Indirect Effects of Lightning, EMP, Shielding and Composite Material Effectiveness.
The Laboratory is willing to collaborate with students from all around the world who are performing their degree thesis. Contact Mr. Bandinelli at firstname.lastname@example.org
