- Monday April 13, 10-11am seminar at UCLA
- Tuesday April 14, 6-8:30pm Joint Meeting sponsored by the San Diego Section of the IEEE
- Wednesday April 15, 8:30am-noon Tutorial at IEEE RFID 2015 in San Diego
- Friday April 17, 3:00-4:30pm seminar at USC
Dr. Schantz will discuss the origins of near-field wireless, survey applications, describe recent progress in near-field theory, present near-field links laws, and discuss the properties and performance of electrically-small antennas. Near-field wireless technology is an emerging area of great importance in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Specific applications including low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) RFID, Near-Field Communications (NFC), RuBee (IEEE 1902.1), wireless power transfer, and Near-Field Electromagnetic Ranging (NFER).
