About the Electromagnetics Group

As an electromagnetics group, we are part of the Department of Information Technology (INTEC) at Ghent University, Belgium. During the past 20 years we have been on the forefront of electromagnetic simulation techniques and theory. Much attention has been devoted both to the development of powerful simulation tools and to industrially relevant applications. Research in electromagnetics at Ghent University was initiated in 1964 by Prof. Jean Van Bladel with the founding of the Laboratory of Electromagnetism and Acoustics. The research scope of the laboratory was very substantially broadened with the transformation to the present Department of Information Technology (INTEC) by Prof. Paul Lagasse. As part of INTEC the Electromagnetics Group is active in many areas of information and communication technology such as microwave and RF circuits, scattering, waveguides, packaging for digital systems, electromagnetic compatibility and immunity, passive optical components and indoor propagation. However, also other areas as remote sensing, imaging and numerical analysis play an important role.

Jan Fostier received the M.S. degree and Ph.D. degree in phsyical engineering from Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium in 2005 and 2009, respectively. His research interests lie in the field of high-performance computing (HPC), numerical techniques, fast algorithms and distributed software.
Senior staff
Prof. Femke Olyslager recieved the Electrical Engineering degree and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium in 1989 and 1993, respectively. She was a full professor in electromagnetics at the same university. She authored more than 250 papers in journals and proceedings. She was Assistant Secretary General of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) and a Fellow of the IEEE. Prof. Femke Olyslager unexpectedly passed away in January 2009.
