Short Bio: 
Kwok L. Chung (Senior Member, IEEE) received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Technology Sydney, NSW, Australia, in 2004 and he subsequently joined the Faculty of Engineering, University of Technology Sydney, as a Lecturer. In 2006, he joined The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong. In 2012, he joined the Institute for Infrastructure Engineering, University of Western Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia. In 2015, he joined the Qingdao University of Technology (QUT), Qingdao, China, as a Research Professor and a supervisor of Ph.D. students leading a cross-disciplinary research team at the Civionics Research Laboratory, QUT. He is currently a Research Professor at the Huizhou University, China. He has authored and coauthored about 150 publications (SCI & EI) in various areas of electrical and civil engineering. His current research interests include passive wireless sensors for structural health monitoring, cement-based materials design and characterization, 5G/B5G microwave and millimeter-wave antennas, artistic antennas, and MU-MIMO antenna systems.

Title: Recent Progress on the Design of Chinese-Character-Shaped Patch Antennas and Arrays

The increasing demand for microwave and millimeter wave communication systems has driven the need for multi-functional antenna research and design. One of the functions is the artistic appearance with hiding ability, which can alleviate people's allergies to the ever-increasing radio radiation, which is called electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). Recently, the artistic font patch antenna has attracted much attention because of its evocative appearance and excellent performance as well as its function in mitigating EHS. In this talk, we present a series of interesting designs using Chinese-character shapes at microwave frequency such as beam-diversity, polarization-diversity, directional antennas for WiFi/WLAN IEEE 802.11ac applications. At the same time, we also introduce a couple of millimeter-wave designs for 5G FR2 n258 communications.
