Microwaves and Antenna Engineering Research Group

Pioneering the analysis, design and integration of high frequency electronics devices and systems

WenxingDr. Wenxing Tang was born in Guangxi, China. He received the Undergraduate Diploma from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Beijing, China, in 2002, the M.Sc. degree (distinction) in electrical engineering from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, U.K., in 2005, and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, U.K., in 2011. He is currently a Research Associate with the Microwave Research Group, Heriot-Watt University. His research interests include microwave and millimeter-wave tunable/reconfigurable devices, multilayer liquid crystal polymer (LCP) technology, frequency-selective surfaces and periodic structures. From June 2013 Dr Tang has been working for European Space Agency (ESA) project. The research area focuses dual-optics circular polarization surface for next generation satellite antennas. In previous years he has worked on the HUAWEI project, focusing on low cost, low loss and high selectivity dual-band combiner design as well as the SIMCLAIRS project lookimg at miniature tunable and reconfigurable bandpass filters which were design using multilayer LCP materials
