The microwave group as a part of the prestigious H2020 project


Professor Karel Hoffman and his microwave team has become a part of the project H2020 Marie Curie ITN CELTA.

CELTA is the acronym for Convergence of Electronics and Photonics Technologies for Enabling Terahertz Applications. CELTA aims to produce the next generation of researchers who will enable Europe to take a leading role in the multidisciplinary area of utilising Terahertz technology for applications involving components and complete systems for sensing, instrumentation, imaging, spectroscopy, and communications. CELTA is comprised of 11 leading research institutions and has assembled a comprehensive research training programme for all the 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs). More information on

We print the antennas


Using new 3D printer we are able to print the antennas. Two eliptical and circular waveguide structured antennas on 5.5 GHz with a polarizer were developed by Adam Roxer in his diploma thesis (see figures).

Do not hesitate and ask for a project or a diploma thesis or just come to see what we do in our department.

Now: having a diploma thesis you can print all your items for free :)



The vector measurements up to 110 GHz


New frequency converters R&S ZVA-Z110E were added to the current hardware equipment in the Department of Electromagnetic Field. The converters together with the 4 port vector analyzer R&S ZVA-67 can be used for 2 port vector measurements up to 110 GHz with the dynamic range up to 110 dB.


Fulbright-CTU Distinguished Chair in the Department of Electromagnetic Field


Professor Jeff Frolik becomes CTU Distinguished Chair at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in January 2017 for the period of five months.

Professor Frolik currently works at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of Vermont. His main focus is sensor networks and wireless communications. He will be teaching wave propagation in wireless communications within the study program of Electronics and Communications at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Prague.

Pavel Pechac, the Head of the Department of Electromagnetic Field commented on hosting a distinguished scientist: "Our department is very much looking forward to Professor Frolik. We will be happy to be inspired by foreign experience and teaching methods."

The Dean's Award for Jan Kracek


Ing. Jan Kraček, Ph.D. was awarded the Dean's Award for his dissertation thesis Wireless Power Transmission. His supervisor was Prof. Miloš Mazánek.

We participate in LiFi development


We participate in the development of IEEE 802.15.7r standard for the optical communications using the visible part of the electromagentic spectrum known as VLC (visible light communication) or LiFi (light fidelity). The head of Wireless and Fiber Optics group Stanislav Zvanovec gave a talk on the future posibilities and applications of this technology in Czech Radio. You can listen the interview here (only in Czech).

The international COST IC1102 VISTA project meeting


The working group from the Department of Electromagnetic Field, namely Milos Mazanek, Miloslav Capek and Pavel Hazdra, took part in the final meeting of the international project COST IC1102 VISTA (Action on Versatile, Integrated, and Signal-aware Technologies for Antennas) in France in Villefranche sur Mer between 21st and 23rd October. One of the last presentation of very successfull 4-year project was delivered by Miloslav Capek.

ESHO-Pyrexar Award


At it’s annual scientific meeting in Zurich, Switzerland June 24-26, 2015, the European Society of Hyperthermic Oncology (ESHO) bestowed its highest honor, the 30th annual ESHO-Pyrexar Award, on prof. Jan Vrba. The ESHO-Pyrexar Award is awarded annually for outstanding contributions to hyperthermic oncology, education and scientific achievement.
