As any academic research lab, we publish our work in high-impact journals and as conference contributions. This way, we aim to disseminate research and findings to a broad audience, trigger interaction and collaboration, and advance science and technology.
A complete overview of all our publications can be found via the database of Ghent University. Our most recent work is presented below.
Authors’ Online Seminar – IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques
This seminar is based on the paper “A Hybrid EM/QM Framework Based on the ADHIE-FDTD Method for the Modeling of Nanowires“, IEEE J-MMCT, vol. 7, 2022, pp. 236-251, coauthored by Pieter Decleer and Dries Vande Ginste. The paper won the
Analysis of Electronic Waveguide Bends in Graphene Subject to Dirac Point Fluctuations
Various optics-inspired electronic devices based on graphene have been proposed, owing to the linear dispersion relation of the charge carriers. In this contribution, the waveguide bend is examined by means of a higher-order time-domain method for the (2+1)D Dirac equation
Analysis and Application of a Surface Admittance Operator for Combined Magnetic and Dielectric Contrast in Emerging Interconnect Topologies
This article presents a novel method to accurately simulate electromagnetic scattering at homogeneous polygonal cylinders with arbitrary material properties. A single source equivalence approach is invoked, allowing to substitute the background medium for the inner material of the scatterer, provided
A conservative fourth-order real space method for the (2+1)D Dirac equation
Modelling the time-dependent (2+1)D Dirac equation has recently gained importance since this equation effectively describes multiple condensed matter systems. To avoid the large dispersion errors of second-order real space schemes, a highly accurate method is presented here instead. The method
Conservative Second-Order Accurate Finite-Difference Scheme for the Coupled Maxwell-Dirac Equations
The recent development of nanoelectronic devices that incorporate Dirac materials has highly increased the need for adequate simulation and modelling tools. This paper introduces an accurate, multiphysics finite-difference time-domain method to solve the pertinent Maxwell-Dirac equations. The stability criterion for
Spherical Fourier-Transform-Based Real-Time Near-Field Shaping and Focusing in Beyond-5G Networks
For ultra-reliable high-data-rate communication, the beyond fifth generation (B5G) and the sixth generation (6G) wireless networks will heavily rely on beamforming, with mobile users often located in the radiative near-field of large antenna systems. Therefore, a novel approach to shape
