Arthur D. Yaghjian
The electromagnetics expertise of Arthur D. Yaghjian has resulted in groundbreaking advancements in both fundamental electromagnetic theory and applied electromagnetics leading to state-of-the-art techniques for the analysis, measurement, and development of current-day antennas. His early research at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology helped pioneer the development of probe-corrected, near-field antenna measurements for accurately characterizing modern antennas in both the frequency and time domains. His work on efficient electromagnetic near-field antenna coupling using plane-wave and spherical-wave representations serves as the basis for rapidly computing the mutual coupling of co-sited antennas along transverse and longitudinal separation distances. He has made a major impact on the research and development of modern, electrically small antennas and was the driving force behind the conception, development, and patent of supergain electrically small antennas.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Yaghjian is an electromagnetics research consultant with S4 Inc., Bedford, Massachusetts.
