The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Paavai Engineering College (Autonomous) in association with Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE) had organized an online webinar on“Recent trends in Microstrip Antenna Technology”on 15thJuly 2020. Dr.R.MohanaPriya, Associate Professor, ECE gave the welcome note and introduced the Chief Guest,Dr.Swagata Sarkar , Professor & Head , Department ofArtificial Intelligence, Sri Sairam Engineering College, Chennai.
In her lecture, she gave an introduction about “Antennas and Microstrip Antennas”. She elucidated about the types, structures and different substrates used for these antennas with its detailed operation. She also described about the different feeding techniquesand its applications. She also highlighted the recent developments in Microstrip patch antenna such as Reconfigurable antenna technology, metamaterial technology, fractal design, reflect arrays and Genetic algorithm-based antenna design technology. She also explained about the Antenna fabrication, testing and also about network analyzer.She also simulated an antenna design using ANSYS and explained about it. Finally, she clarified the queries posted by the faculty members and students from different colleges at the end of the session.
