XLIM organise un séminaire orienté vers les "antennes", le Lundi 27 Mars 2017 à partir de 14h, dans les salles XR203-202. Le séminaire s'articulera autour de deux présentations orales délivrées par deux membres reconnus de la communauté internationale :
Robert Shaw, de la Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), donnera une presentation intitulée « Recent Projects at CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science: ASKAP and FAST. »
Biography of the author. Robert Shaw graduated from the University of Sydney with the Bachelor of Science in 1984 and the Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) in 1985. From 1985 to 1992 he worked with the Overseas Telecommunications Commission (OTC) in the R&D group, and then Alcatel-TCC. His area of specialisation was submarine optical fibre communications. After a brief hiatus to earn a Bachelor of Theology, Mr Shaw returned to electronics engineering in 1996 with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), where he works as an analog and RF design engineer. His research projects have included a 5 GHz radio transceiver for the wireless LAN testbed, a CDMA scanner, the CSIRO MIMO testbed, and the Ngara rural broadband project. Since 2007 Mr Shaw has worked with the ASKAP radio telescope as a low-noise amplifier designer, and more recently with the FAST multibeam project. His research interests are in the design of low-noise amplifiers for phased-array feeds in radio astronomy, low-noise device characterisation, and noise measurement techniques.
Christophe Granet, de la société Lyrebird Antenna Research Pty Ltd (Australia), présentera un conférence orale intitulée « Horn and Reflector Design from Down Under. »
Abstract. Christophe will talk about the horn and reflector design projects he has been involved with over the past 25 years while working in Australia for the CSIRO, BAE Systems Australia and now Lyrebird Antenna Research. This will not be a pure technical talk, it will be more a summary of the various projects he has been involved with to give the audience a view of how varied and challenging these projects have been.
Biography of the author. Dr Christophe Granet is an award winning antenna engineer with over 20 years experience in the design, manufacture and test of high performance reflector antennas and feed systems for satellite communications, radio astronomy and scientific applications. He was the recipient of the 2001 HA Wheeler Award from the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, and has published over 140 peer-reviewed scientific papers and co-authored two book chapters on antenna design. From 1995 to 2008 he worked as a Principal Research Scientist at the CSIRO Radiophysics Laboratory, Sydney, Australia, then in 2008 left to join BAE Systems Australia as a Senior Antenna Specialist. In 2015 he left BAE Systems to start Lyrebird Antenna Research Pty Ltd. Christophe is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
