Antennas as an integral part of Sensors, Dr. Akram Alomainy
Dr. Akram Alomainy explains what cognitive radio is, how it senses and learns from environment and why it’s important for the most effective results. He talks about ink-jet printed antennas, antenna flexibility and how they can be part of textiles. His research focuses on creating very small and flexible antennas without losing efficiency and how their application in health services can help patients and personnel in linking everything for medical assessment. Dr. Akram Alomainy is a very passionate and eloquent speaker with a very clear image of his research and the future. He mentions his research on the light spectrum, specifically on bending light and why he wants to research more on cognitive antennas by creating a device that will do everything in one. Interviewed by Vicki Kolovou for Tech Talks Central.
