Electromagnetic Compatibility (AP/MTT/EMC) Joint Chapter would like to
invite you to the Distinguished Microwave Lecture (Tatsuo Itoh DML Class of
2022-2024) in conjunction with 2022 IEEE International RF and Microwave
Conference (RFM 2022), as follows:

Date: 20th December 2022 (Tuesday)

Time : 9.40 am – 10.30 am (MYT, GMT +8)

Speaker: Professor Quan Xue, IEEE Fellow, South China University of
Technology, Guangzhou, China.

Title: “New Techniques for Millimeter-wave Sources”


Millimeter-wave source is the heart of a millimeter-wave system. It is
extremely important for next generations of mobile communications, such as
5G, 6G, WiFix, etc. The quality of the source directly affects the
performance of the systems. It has been a hot topic to do researches and
developments to obtain high quality and low cost CMOS millimeter-wave
source. This speech will introduce new techniques for millimeter-wave
source, including new designs of oscillators, multipliers, and frequency
dividers.  Design methodology and measured results will be presented.


Quan Xue (M’02-SM’04-F’11) received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in
electronic engineering from the University of Electronic Science and
Technology of China (UESTC), Chengdu, China, in 1988, 1991, and 1993,
respectively. In 1993, he joined the UESTC as a Lecturer. He became a
Professor in 1997. From October 1997 to October 1998, he was a Research
Associate and then a Research Fellow with the Chinese University of Hong
Kong. In 1999, he joined the City University of Hong Kong and was a Chair
Professor of Microwave Engineering. He also served the University as the
Associate Vice President, and the Director of Information and Communication
Technology Center, and the Deputy Director of the State Key Lab of
Millimeter Waves (Hong Kong). In 2017, he joined the South China University
of Technology, where now he is a Professor and serves as the dean of the
School of Electronic and Information Engineering, the dean of the School of
Microelectronics, and the Director of the Guangdong Key Laboratory of
Terahertz and Millimeter Waves. He also serves as the Antenna Chief
Scientist of Huawei Technologies 2012 Labs, a member of the National 6G
Technology General Expert Group. His research interests include
microwave/millimeter-wave/THz passive components, active components,
antenna, microwave monolithic integrated circuits (MMIC, radio frequency
integrated circuits (RFIC). Professor Xue is a Fellow of IEEE and an IEEE
distinguished microwave lecturer for the 2022-2024 term. He served the IEEE
as an AdCom member of MTT-S (2011-2013) and the Associate Editor of IEEE
Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques (2010-2013), the Editor of
International Journal of Antennas and Propagation (2010-2013), the Associate
Editor of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics (2010-2015), the
Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Antenna and Propagations (2016).
Professor Xue is the winner of the 2017 H. A. Wheeler Applications Prize
Paper Award.
