Sungmin Cho of the Department of Electrical Engineering at POSTECH will receive an honorable mention award at the IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting (IEEE APS/URSI 2020).

Cho will receive the award for his paper titled ‘Ultra-low Power Beamforming Wideband OFDM Signal with Active GRIN Lens at 19 GHz.’

The paper proposes an active lens-based beamforming system as an alternative to the power consumption problem which is a stumbling block in implementing beamforming – a millimeter wave 5G core technology. Cho demonstrated this by successfully steering the actual 5G-NR signal at ±40° with power consumption of about 1/2000 times less than the existing technology. It earned attention especially for its low complexity and ultra-low power operations.

The IEEE AP-S/URSI 2020 symposium will be held from July 5 to 10 in Montréal, Quebec, Canada. The technical sessions, workshops, and courses with specific themes will be held along with the award ceremony. A total of 203 papers have been submitted to the student paper competition.
