Electromagnetics experts from around the country will gather at the University of Houston tomorrow to discuss the latest issues and advances in the field of electromagnetic compatibility.

The gathering is hosted by the Center for Electromagnetic Compatibility (CEMC), a partnership of the University of Houston and Missouri University of Science and Technology. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), CEMC is dedicated to solving problems related to unintentional electromagnetic effects, which can impact the performance of electronic devices and even endanger the health of people with implanted medical devices such as pacemakers.

According to Ji Chen, professor of electrical and computer engineering at UH’s Cullen College of Engineering, roughly 50 people are expected to attend the two-day technical conference. In addition to academics from around the country, attendees will include industry researchers from companies such as Apple, IBM, Panasonic and Samsung.

Rotating and Aligning Graphene Flakes – A UH Engineer's Discovery Opens Doors to Progress

Associate Professor Jiming Bao and screen filled with graphene flakes suspended in solvent between two layers of glass. Bao discovered that a magnet rotates and aligns the flakes.

In 2010 graphene took center stage when the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to two scientists in the UK "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene." At the UH Cullen College of Engineering, that same passion over pencil lead is shared by Jiming Bao, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, but he’s taken it to a whole new dimension,

Computer simulation software allows engineers to predict how certain materials will perform under specific – and often extreme – conditions. For instance, major advances in aerospace and flight were made possible due to engineering simulation based on computational solid mechanics, leading to pioneering work conducted by the company Boeing.
