The 13thEuropean Conference on Antennas and Propagation took place from the 31th of March until the 5thof April in the beautiful city of Krakow and included a wide range of delegates from academia and industry from all over the world.
The massive participation and the high quality of the antennas and propagation representatives denote the big success of the conference. Of course, REVOLVE project could not be absent from this big event. Many delegates from the REVOLVE consortium were present in EuCAP and among them myself.
Above all, I want to express my absolute delight and satisfaction for being a part of the most important meeting held by the best both academic and industrial representatives on antennas and propagation. From my side, I presented the paper with title ‘Design of a Compact Four-Way Dual Polarization Orthomode Power Divider for Multiport Radiating Elements’ in the 23rdConvened Session named ‘Antenna needs and solutions for future Space missions’. This work presents briefly the design and evaluation of a dual-polarized microwave excitation network, which comprises 4 outputs and its afterwards connection to feed a stacked Fabry-Perot cavity antenna. The successful presentation of this project as well as the massive attendance and interest of the conference’s delegates at this session were the two most memorable things for me.
Of course, during the conference I had the chance to meet people from industries as well as academia (universities, R&D sections at companies, research centers), with whom I had time to exchange views and ideas about several aspects related to the emerging microwave and antennas technologies. On the whole, this EuCAP has been an absolutely inspiring and motivating experience for me.
