Research profile

Giampiero Gerini is part-time Professor of 'Material Engineering from Microwaves to Optics' with the research group Electromagnetics at the TU/e department of Electrical Engineering. His main affiliation is with the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), where he is in charge of the metamaterial research program at the Optics Department. His main research interests are phased arrays antennas, electromagnetic bandgap structures, frequency selective surfaces, metamaterials/metasurfaces(from microwave up to optical frequencies), super-resolution lenses and integrated antennas at microwave, millimeter and sub-millimeter wave frequencies. The main application fields of interest are imaging, metrology, radar and telecommunication systems. Giampiero Gerini was co-recipient of the 2008 H. A. Wheeler Applications Prize Paper Award of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society. He was co-recipient also of the Best Innovative Paper Prize of the 30th ESA Antenna Workshop in 2008 and of the best antenna theory paper prize of the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP) in 2010.

Academic background

Giampiero Gerini studied Electronic Engineering at the University of Ancona (Italy), where he obtained his MSc degree in 1998 (summa cum laude) and his PhD degree in 1992. From 1992 to 1994, he was Assistant Professor of Electromagnetic Fields at the same University. From 1994 to 1997, he was Research Fellow with the Radio Frequency System Division at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESA-ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands). In 1997, Giampiero Gerini joined the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO, The Hague, The Netherlands). From 1997 to 2013, he was Chief Senior Scientist of the Antenna Unit in the Radar Technology Department of TNO Defence Security and Safety. Since 2014, he is in charge of the metamaterial research program at the TNO Optics Department.  In 2007, he was appointed as part-time professor at the department of Electrical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, The Netherlands), with a chair on ‘Novel Structures and Concepts for Advanced Antennas’. Since 2017, he has a new chair at TU/e on ‘Material Engineering from Microwaves to Optics’.
