EUCAP is a European conference held each year. This year it was held in Florence.

We are happy to share the exciting news that Professor Yi Huang, from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics, has been recognized for his groundbreaking research on wireless power transfer (WPT).

Professor Huang, along with colleagues from two other universities, authored a joint research paper titled "Wideband mmWave Wireless Power Transfer: Theory, Design and Experiments", which has been awarded the Best Paper Award on Antennas at the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP 2023).

EuCAP 2023 is the largest European conference on antennas and propagation, with over 1500 attendees from across the globe. This year's conference was held in Florence, Italy, and attracted researchers, engineers, and academics from the field of antennas and propagation. The award-winning paper, which was a collaborative effort between Professor Huang and colleagues at Heriott-Watt University and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven, presented a comprehensive study of the theoretical foundations, design methodologies, and experimental results related to WPT in the mmWave frequency range.

The research findings have far-reaching implications for the future of WPT technology, including the development of more efficient wireless charging solutions for electric vehicles, medical implants, and consumer electronics. The recognition of Professor Huang's work at EuCAP 2023 is a testament to his exceptional contributions to the field, and we are proud to have him as a member of our team. Congratulations, Professor Huang, on this well-deserved honour!
