research overview

  • Professor Kuester's current research is in the field of metamaterials: artificially engineered materials that exhibit novel and interesting responses to electromagnetic fields. His focus is on the fundamental principles of operation of these materials, and on the limitations to the behaviors obtainable by the laws of physics, such as minimization of loss, achievable bandwidth of negative refractive index, etc. He is also investigating the optimal design of impedance matching networks by reducing reflection only in the desired frequency band. He carries out research in many other areas of electromagnetic waves as well.
