Current Research Interests:

  • Electrically small antennas
  • Multiband and broadband antennas
  • Metamaterial-loaded antennas
  • Electromagnetic metamaterials
  • Fractals in electromagnetics 

Demonstration of negative permittivity: Electric field vectors of the wave coming in from the left change direction in the region of the unit cells, then resume their original orientation upon exiting the effective medium.
