Greetings, IEEE AP-S Members Worldwide!
Gianluca Lazzi, AP-S President
I am deeply honored and humbled to serve as the 2022 president of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S). The past year has been incredibly challenging for our Society and the world in general; COVID-19 has inflicted a tremendous amount of pain and suffering on so many, and we have lost friends and colleagues. I am hoping and praying that each and every one of you is well and stays healthy.
I have had the privilege to serve the AP-S in many roles during the past 25 years, and I have a tremendous appreciation for the significant efforts required by all members to ensure that the functions of the Society run smoothly. As we enter the new year, I would like to thank the AP-S members for their support, committee chairs and members for their restless work and leadership, editors and reviewers for making our publications the pride of our Society, and volunteers for dedicating significant time making sure the AP-S continues to thrive and deliver value.
In this episode of OJAP TALKS, OJAP’s Associate Editor, Dr Qammer Abbasi, talks with Prof. Kwai-Man Luk from the City University of Hong Kong. Prof. Luk speaks about the transformative power of millimeter-wave antenna technologies for next-generation wireless applications. He discusses the latest trends in millimeter-wave antenna design and goes through the key challenges towards achieving miniaturization, wide bandwidth, and increased performance. He also sheds light on the enabling role of liquid antennas for future communications and reflects on the opportunities presented by reconfigurable intelligent metasurfaces for mobile communications, sensing, energy harvesting, and wireless power transfer.
