Wireless Technology & UWB in Singapore

19 March 2007

Abstract: Singapore R&D groups are very actively working on wireless communications from many aspects. Since 2002, much R&D effort in Singapore research organizations has paid for Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology for promising commercial applications in communications, measurements, and radar imaging. This talk will overview the R&D of Singapore especially Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) in modern wireless technology and latest advances in UWB.

About the speaker: Dr Chen received his BEng, MEng, PhD and DoE degrees all in Electrical Engineering. During 1988-1995, he worked as lecturer and professor in China. Later he conducted research in several organizations such Southeast University, City University of Hong Kong, University of Tsukuba, Japan (JSPS). In 2001 and 2004, he visited University of Tsukuba under JSPS Fellowship Program (senior level). In 2004, he worked at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, USA as Academic Visitor. Since 1999, he has worked at Institute for Infocomm Research. His current appointments are Principal Scientist and Department Manager for Radio Systems. He is concurrently holding Adjunct Professor Appointments at Southeast University, Nanjing University, as well as Adjunct Associate Professors at National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

He established IEEE International Workshop on Antenna Technology (iWAT) and organized iWAT2005 as General Chair. He also organized many international technical events as chairs or members of organizing committees.

He has published more than 180 papers (32 papers were published at IEEE Transactions). He has authored and edited books entitled "Broadband Planar Antennas", "UWB Wireless Communication" and "Antennas for Portable Devices" all published by John Wiley & Sons. He also contributed to the book of UWB Antennas and Propagation for Communications, Radar, and Imaging will be published in August 2006 by John Wiley & Sons. He is holding 19 granted and filed patents. He has licensed his antenna designs to industry with deals. His current research interest includes applied electromagnetics, antennas for UWB, MIMO, WLAN, WiMAX (WiBro), WBAN, and bio-imaging systems. (
