Dr Xiulong Bao Receives CTVR Achievement Award

Dr Xiulong Bao, a researcher in the Centre for Telecommunications Value-chain-driven Research (CTVR, [external]www.ctvr.ie) antenna group, located in the School of Electronic & Communications Engineering, Kevin St received an achievement award based on research output at the CTVR plenary meeting in Kilkenny in March. The antenna group is part of the larger RF strand, based in NUI, Maynooth, whose aim is to realize the next generation of fully reconfigurable radio transceivers and associated intelligent antenna systems. Bell Labs Research Ireland are partners in the project.

Dr Bao received his M.Sc and Ph.D degrees from the Southeast University, Nanjing, China in 1996 and 2003 respectively. His major is electromagnetic fields & microwave technology. His research fields comprise GPS/handset antennas, RFID antennas, and various antennas based on metamaterial structures. He has considerable skills in electromagnetic scattering and electromagnetic numerical computation.

He held a post-doctoral post in the Shanghai Jiao Tong University for the next two years, before coming to Ireland. His work, in Dublin involves the miniaturisation of antennas for emerging telecommunications systems and improvement of antenna performance using novel metamaterials.

CTVR Test Standard Hopping Wireless System

A wireless system capable of hopping between incompatible wireless standards that could revolutionise the telecommunications industry is being tested in Ireland. The "software-defined radio" device, developed by a team at the Centre for Telecommunications Value-Chain Research (CTVR) in Dublin, can mimic many different wireless tools by using reconfigurable software to carry out tasks normally performed by static hardware. The system employs novel radio frequency (RF) and antenna elements, developed by the CTVR antenna group, School of Electronic and Communications Engineering, Kevin St. This group is part of the larger RF strand, aimed at realizing the next generation of fully reconfigurable radio transceivers and associated intelligent antenna systems.
