Distinguished Professor Yahya Rahmat-Samii has been elected Fellow by Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society
Distinguished Professor Yahya Rahmat-Samii has been selected as ACES Fellow by the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES), the world's largest society in the area of computational electromagnetics (www.aces-society.org). ACES is the premier international computational society which serves scientists and engineers in industry, academia, and government working in a wide variety of fields related but not limited to EM scattering by complex objects, advanced numerical techniques and modern antenna designs. ACES Fellows are chosen for their distinguished efforts to advance computational techniques in electromagnetics and antennas. Professor Rahmat-Samii was honored for his pioneering contributions in the areas of spectral theory of diffraction, natured inspired evolutionary optimization techniques in electromagnetics, and reflector antenna synthesis and analysis. The author of more than 800 scholarly publications and four books, Prof. Rahmat-Samii has given numerous courses on these topics including two IEEE e-courses. Professor Rahmat-Samii will receive the recognition at the ACES conference awards banquet in Monterey, March 24-28, 2013.
