Personal profile

Quote

For each current loop you design in a system, nature adds another one that runs through the environment. If their coupling is intended you made a transmitter or receiver. In every other case there is a major problem. The study of electromagnetic compatibility can provide a solution.

Research profile

Lex van Deursen is an assistant professor with the research group Electrical Energy Systems at the TU/e department of Electrical Engineering, focusing on electromagnetic compatibility. This entails advanced modeling and measurement techniques that will help engineers and scientists to understand and simulate the key factors leading to potential degradation of desired operation of their systems, at an early stage of the design process and alter on after installation. The research focus ranges from 'small' systems (e.g. propagation of disturbances in integrated circuits) to 'large' ones (e.g. lightning protection of large industrial installations and power plants). The innovative modeling and measurement techniques are rooted in advanced analytical electromagnetics, statistical electromagnetics and simulation techniques.

Academic background

A. (Lex) P. J. van Deursen studied physics and received his PhD degree at Radboud University in Nijmegen. After a postdoc period at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research (Grenoble, France), he returned to Nijmegen where he worked on the electronic structure of metals and semiconductors. In 1986, he moved to Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and shifted his attention to research in electromagnetic compatibility. Together with professor P.C.T. Van der Laan, he established the first Dutch university-level EMC course, and an adapted version for industry. He carried out many external research contracts applying the theory and techniques developed. He has been chairman and member of various committees in conferences, e.g. the triennial URSI General Assembly and the yearly EMC Europe. Currently he chairs the yearly PAO EMC course.
