Tesla coil experiment at FELfest 2018


Our department introduced the Tesla coil experiment as a part of Techpark within the musical festival FELfest 2018. Check out the photos from the event below.





Dean's Award for the Dissertation thesis


Petr Chvojka was awarded the Dean's Award for the excellent dissertation thesis Visible Light Communications for Indoor Applications. Congratulations!

Electromagnetic Tuesday at the department


The first year of the event for students Electromagnetic Tuesday (EMiT) took place at our department. We prepared 11 experiments for around 100 students that visited EMiT. During 4 hours students designed over 1200 antennas, manufactured and measured another 12 antennas and connectorized 13 optical cables. The best students were awarded 12 prizes.

During the interactive antenna design workshop students used the Antenna Toolbox for Matlab (AToM) developed at our department. Many of them achieved even better results than a genetic algorithm running (limited to 30 iterations) in a cycle in parallel throughout the workshop. Detailed results from antenna design contest can be found here.


Our colleagues Zdeněk Hradecký and a vice-rector of CTU Zbyněk Škvor served all the 200 beers and tens of pickled sausages. See the photogallery.

We thank you all for your participation and look forward to next event! If you have any suggestions or comments, we will appreciate your feedback on


New wikipedia page about characteristic modes released


A team from the Department of electromagnetic field published new wikipedia web page about popular topic in the antenna theory - decomposition of surface currents into characteristic modes. Find more information on wiki website.

Antenna toolbox AToM for MATLAB has been finished


Antenna Toolbox for MATLAB, AToM, developed in cooperation with BUT and MECAS ESI, is finished! For details see The toolbox will be delivered during January on the same page.

Dean's Award for Michael Pisarik


Dr. Michael Pisarik, our graduate, was awarded the Dean's Award for his doctoral thesis Rare Earth Doped Fiber Lasers for Spectral Region about 2 Micrometers supervised by prof. Stanislav Zvanovec and Dr. Pavel Peterka from the Institute of Photonics and Electronics The Czech Academy of Sciences. Congratulations!

New members in Wireless and fiber optics team


Wireless and fiber optics team will have two new members who will join within the project European Training Network on Visible light based Interoperability and Networking - VisIoN. The new colleagues are Zahra Nazari from Isfahan University of Technology, Iran and Shivani Teli from Pukyong National University, Busan, South Korea. Both will be focused on Visible Light Communications (VLC) and have already published their research in the following journal papers.

Outdoor trip


The department employees took part in the trip in Cecky raj. Besides the wonderful nature and neverending discussions, there was also a professional part including a measurement of the received signal attenuation in the outdoor environment.
