MATLAB challenge for Valeo


MATLAB challenge for Valeo

The cooperation between Valeo and CTU FEE, Department of Electromagnetic Field has been initiated, starting from Winter term 2019-2020.

Valeo is sponsoring the first three awards in a programming challenge within the MATLAB Course (B0B17MTB). The topic of the contest is proper modelling of automotive doors' opening and trajectory evaluation of ultrasonic sensors depending on an opening angle.

The assignment is available here and is open to all students of B0B17MTB course. Authors of the first three successful projects will be awarded by Valeo diploma and vouchers for 5.000, 2.000 and 1.000 CZK to, respectively.


CEM Workshops


Workshops on small radiating structures

Our colleagues from the CEM research group attended the 6th workshop focusing on the research of small radiating structures. Together with the collaborating partners from the Lund University in Sweden, KU Leuven in Belgium and Santa Clara University in the USA they discuss topics such as optimal electrically small antennas and their fundamental limits or modelling of plasmonic structures. The last workshop took place in the Czech Republic, at the cottage in Bratrice.

AToM purchased by Sandia National Laboratories

The AToM package, a toolbox developed at the Department of Electromagnetic Field, FEE CTU, has recently been purchased by the Sandia National Laboratories, USA!

Many thanks to SNL for supporting our further research!

EMiT 2019


Electromagnetic Tuesday (EMiT) 2019

The second year of the event Electromagnetic Tuesday (EMiT) took place at the Department of Electromagnetic Field. Students could visit many workshops and experiments including optical fiber splicing, Wi-Fi can antenna manufacturing, induction heating, Tesla coil, the measurement of the thickness of a light bulb using optical beam and interactive design of a receiving antenna using the AToM toolbox developed at our department. You can find the results from the antenna design here.

Do not hesitate to let us your feedback on We are looking forward to seeing you next year!

EuMCE 2019


European Microwave Conference in Central Europe

European Microwave Association (EuMA) is launching a new series of conferences focusing on the development of microwave theory and technology primarily (but not only) in the Central European region. The first of these conferences - EuMCE 2019 - will be held in Prague. More information about EuMCE 2019, local organization, conference fee (it starts at 200 EUR, resp. at 100 EUR in case of students), important dates etc. can be found at webpage

EuMCE 2019 will be held from May 13 to 15 at Prague Congress Center. It will be associated with an Exhibition organized by Horizon House. We expect about 30 exhibitors – including e.g. Keysight Technologies, Rohde-Schwarz, etc.

The Proceedings of the EuMCE 2019 will be published in IEEE Xplore. The deadline for preliminary papers submission is January 25, 2019.

You can download information in pdf here.

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.
