Material Characterization and Antenna Measurement Techniques for Development of Passive Devices for Beyond-5G/6G Applications
Organizer / Chair :   Yuto Kato (AIST)
In the next generation wireless communication, beyond-5G/6G, millimeter-waves over 100 GHz are expected to be used, and the development of advanced materials for lower power consumption is crucial for realizing 6G. In the development of passive devices such as metamaterials, antennas, and frequency selective surfaces for beyond-5G/6G applications, it is essential to design them using material parameters at their operating frequencies, and to evaluate their performances using an antenna evaluation system for beyond-5G/6G applications.
In this workshop session, we will discuss material and antenna measurement techniques in the millimeter-wave bands for the development of passive devices for beyond-5G/6G applications. In addition, we will present our developments of passive devices based on high-precision measurement techniques; the D-band metamaterial reflectors and the W-band frequency selective surfaces.

Fundamentals and Realities of Electromagnetic Field Simulation Using a High Performance Computer
Organizer / Chair :  Takuji Arima (Tokyo Univ. of Agriculture and Tech.)
The field of application of electromagnetic waves is expanding to include high-speed mobile communications, undersea communications, and wireless power transmission. In order to develop these systems, computer simulation is important. On the other hand, simulating electromagnetic phenomena in real environments often requires a large amount of memory, which makes it impossible to perform calculations on a general-purpose PC. In such a case, it is necessary to use a so-called supercomputer.
In this session, we will discuss the basics and recent topics of electromagnetic field simulation using supercomputers, which are expected to become more and more necessary in the future.

Organizer / Chair :  Eiji Okamoto (Nagoya Inst. of Tech.)
In March 2020, the commercial service of the 5th generation mobile communications system (5G) started in Japan. 5G is the same as the previous evolution of the 4th generation mobile communications system (4G) in that it achieves high-speed communication, but it also has a new feature in that it can accommodate communication with users other than mobile terminals, such as vehicles and Internet of things (IoT) terminals. This is a reason of that 5G is expected to create and drive the use cases of remote and monitoring operations, education, and other new industries such as autonomous driving, automated factories, telework, etc. Therefore, the early spread and further evolution of 5G are much desired.
