Li-Fi experiments in a hospital


Li-Fi tested in a hospital in operating rooms

The researchers from the Wireless and Fibre Optics Group, Petr Chvojka and Stanislav Zvanovec, cooperated with colleagues from the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz Institute on the testing of a Li-Fi system in an operating room in Motol University Hospital. The results were presented at the conference OFC 2020, San Diego, USA. Also, a short interview about the experiment was published in the IEEE Spectrum magazine.

European Network for the High Performance Integrated Microwave Photonics



Recently, a newsletter from European COST project European Network for the High Performance Integrated Microwave Photonics ( has been released where top European teams including CTU in Prague participate in the realisation of integrated microwave photonic systems for the usage in new transmission networks. The optical team lead by Stanislav Zvánovec actively participates in this project in both research activities and also, e.g. by organizing the project meeting in Prague in May 2019.

The newsletter can be found here:

Short-term scientific missions (STSMs) were organised to support young researchers — Jan Bohata visited the University of Valencia and Luis Vallejo, a PhD student from the same university, came to work at CTU in Prague.


EMiT 2020


Electromagnetic Tuesday 2020

At the Department of Electromagnetic Field, we organized the 3rd year of the favorite event Electromagnetic Tuesday (EMiT). We prepared 9 experiments from different fields such as optics, radio waves, and electromagnetic field for all the students and other visitors. Participants could try, for instance, designing a radio receiver with amplitude modulation (including soldering and measurement of devices), functional radar for target detection, manufacturing of a lamp based on plastic optical fibers, and designing of ideal antenna array using AToM - the toolbox for MATLAB.

In the end, the winners of our competition were announced. The main prize was a book of your choice for up to 3000 CZK. Once more, congratulations!

The photographs by Petr Neugebauer from EMiT 2020 can be found in the web gallery. We also made a video from the event.


COST Action CA18223 SyMat Meeting


The First scientific meeting, management committee meeting and core group meeting of the COST Action CA18223 Future communications with higher-symmetric engineered artificial materials – SyMat was organized by the Department of Electromagnetic Field under auspices of Prof. Petr Páta, dean of Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague. It was held on 12–14 February 2020 at Czech Technical University in Prague, with 40 participants from European countries.

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.
