Organization profile

Introduction / mission

Enable 'electromagnetic engineering' by developing new modeling strategies for analysis and synthesis of a range of applications, e.g. antenna systems, medical electromagnetic stimulation and metrology used in semiconductor manufacturing equipment. In addition, we develop new facilities for experimental research in the area of antennas and wireless communications systems. 

Highlighted phrase

We are the leading academic group in applied electromagnetic research in the Netherlands

Organisational profile

Internationally, the Netherlands has a unique position in applied electromagnetic research, housing major players in areas like wireless communications, astronomy, radar, space technology, bio-electromagnetics, optical fibers and components, RF technology, and lithography. To design such applications, the electromagnetic field needs to be analyzed and optimized in complicated three-dimensional configurations. The EM group contributes to this position by developing  new modeling strategies that enable the analysis and design of complex three-dimensional structures that are representative of these applications, and applying state-of-the art modeling to applications suggested by our partners, with whom we maintain long-ranging collaborations.
