Welcome to the ESoA course on Arrays and Reflectarrays
Click on the links below to know more about the ESoA course on Arrays and Reflectarrays taking place from September 3-7, 2018.
The course will provide a global understanding of the electromagnetic behavior of antenna arrays and reflectarrays, with a special emphasis on wideband arrays, on the effects of mutual coupling, on optimization methods and on applications. A software for reflectarray analysis and design will be handed over to the students. Contents of the course include
- Optimization techniques for array synthesis
- Unconventional array configurations
- Ultra-wideband arrays
- Timed arrays
- Array mutual coupling
- Numerical methods for arrays
This course is aimed at postgraduate research students and industrial engineers who want to acquire insight into the physical behavior of antenna arrays and reflectarrays, as well as learn methodologies for array optimization.
Master’ level course in Electromagnetics. Deeper background in antennas and microwaves is an advantage.
Maximum 25 students
Three grants will be offered to students from non-profit organizations. Please send your application by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 29 (the email subject must be “ESoA grant”). Should include student’s CV, research topic, and confirmation letter from the advisor explaining why a specific funding is requested.
The 3 applications receiving most attention will be ranked : the amounts of the grants will be € 440, € 380, € 320, respectively.
The course is organized by Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in the framework of the European School of Antennas (ESoA).
- Non-Profit Institution : € 440
- Profit Institution : € 880

How to reach Louvain-la-Neuve
E411, exit 8a and 9
- From Brussels Airport Zaventem (BRU), take the train to Ottiginies-Louvain-La-Neuve. Ask a ticket to “Louvain-La-Neuve”! “Louvain/Leuven” is a different city!
- From Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL), take the bus shuttle to Bruxelles-Midi/Brussels-Zuid, then take the train to Ottiginies-Louvain-La-Neuve. Ask a ticket to “Louvain-La-Neuve”! “Louvain/Leuven” is a different city!
From any train station in Belgium, take the train to Ottiginies-Louvain-La-Neuve. Ask a ticket to “Louvain-La-Neuve”! “Louvain/Leuven” is a different city!
On-site bed and breakfasts are well referenced on popular reservation websites.
