Goodbye to Professor Julien Perruisseau-Carrier

June 17, 2014

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Julien Perruisseau-Carrier, on June 6, 2014. Professor Perruisseau-Carrier was a respected researcher of antenna designs and interdisciplinary researches related to electromagnetic waves from microwave to terahertz. He was a responsible Associate Editor of the Transactions. His untimely death is a great loss to the electromagnetics society and the Transactions. Professor Perruisseau-Carrier will be dearly missed as a notable scholar and an amiable friend. We are greatly saddened by the news, and our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

Misuse of Return Loss

May 19, 2009

Perhaps over 30% of all antenna papers submitted to the Transactions in the past twelve months have used return loss incorrectly. This misuse of the term is occurring in other allied disciplines as well. For passive structures, return loss is a positive quantity and has the opposite sign of reflection coefficient expressed in dB. Read the full story. [pdf 29 KB]

Submission of Final Manuscripts Via ScholarOne

May 6, 2009

The final submission of accepted manuscripts is now via ScholarOne Manuscript (previously called Manuscript Central). From now on authors should submit their final material via ScholarOne Manuscript. The process is described in the decision email when a paper is accepted.

Migration to TAP Manuscript Central v4 – Monday September 29, 2008
