Propagation Modeling and Measurements in Complex Environments for 5G Communications

June 30, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

There is great potential for the wireless communications industry because the moment a topic (to stay connected) becomes uppermost in people’s minds, they start to look for a holistic solution – and that begins with a thorough understanding of radio wave propagation in a variety of diverse scenarios. As wireless communications become more ubiquitous, new propagation environments emerge and the propagation mechanisms therein should be investigated. In this talk, I will present research findings in several complex and not-well-explored wireless propagation environments such as indoor stairwells, the outskirt of periodic building façade, open-trench drains in Southeast Asia, a pedestrian tunnel, and tropical natural caves in Malaysia. The approaches used in studying these environments include the fundamental, physics-based, and empirical ways of modeling random electromagnetic waves propagation. These research findings advance a better understanding of radio wave propagation and provide practical propagation models for the design of wireless communication systems in those environments. Lastly, I will conclude my talk with a quick sharing of past efforts in promoting electromagnetics education to the Electronic Engineering major and beyond.
