实验室邀请到英国杜伦大学的Sana Salou教授以及比利时鲁汶大学的Claude Osteges教授来实验室做学术报告。
Multi-dimensional channel sounding: recent results and challenges
This talk will explore the multiple dimensions of wireless channels that are currently under investigation with regard to emerging communication networks. In a first part, various channel sounding techniques will be analyzed for wireless scenarios involving more than link. The talk will then detail a number of recent existing experimental results, in particular those achieved within COST 2100 Action. These results will cover both outdoor and indoor environments and provide an overview of the COST 2100 multi-dimensional channel model. Finally, remaining challenges will be highlighted.
Prof. Claude Oestges received the EE degree and the PhD degree in Applied Science from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium), in 1996 and 2000, respectively. In 2001, Prof. Oestges joined the Smart Antennas Research Group of Stanford University, USA, as a post-doctoral, where he was involved in the development of MIMO channel models for broadband wireless access.
Prof. Oestges is currently a Professor at UCL and FRS-FNRS Senior Research Associate. His research interests cover wireless and satellite communications, with a focus on the propagation channel and its impact on system performance. His present activity concerns multi-dimensional channel modeling for wireless communications, including MIMO and cooperative networks, UWB systems and satellite systems.
From 2001 to 2005, Prof. Oestges took part in COST 273, and the IEEE 802.11 Standardization Working Group on "Multiple antenna channel modeling". He was the chair of the Working Group on "Reference channel modeling" in COST 2100. He is now the chair of the Working Group on "Radio Channels" in COST IC1004.
Prof. Oestges serves as an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, and the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking. He is the author of 4 books, and more than 150 papers in international journals and conferences. He received the IET Marconi Premium Award in 2001, and of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society Neal Shepherd Award (for the best propagation paper published by IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology) in 2004 and 2012.
Radio propagation measurements
The talk would cover the wireless channel scenarios and the channel parameters to be measured. Suitable measurement techniques are discussed which include active and passive measurements and suitable channel sounder design.
Prof. Sana Salous received BEng from the American University of Beirut, MSc and PhD from Birmingham University, UK.
Prof. Salous has extended experience in radio propagation measurements in various frequency bands from long range ionospheric sky wave to mm wave bands in the 60 GHz. Over the years she has designed unique radio channel sounders, the latest of which covers multiple frequency bands and has the capability of collocated ABD distributed MIMO measurements and has the capability of spectrum sensing.
In 2003 she took up the Chair in Communication Systems at Durham University where she is also the director of the Centre for Communication Systems.
Currently she holds the Chair of Commission C of the International Union of Radio Science and co-chairs a COST IC1004 Working Group “Urban Environments”. She is also a UK delegate to Study Group 3 of the ITU.
