Welcome to the Computational Electromagnetics Laboratory at McGill University.
We are proud to be the first research lab in computational electromagnetics in Canada.
Currently, there are five core faculties in our group.
We are conducting research in the core algorithms of computational electromagnetics, such as adaptive mesh refinement and
hierachical basis functions. We are also applying these algorithms in the applications like: design of low-frequency induction motor,
brain MRI, microwave-based breast imaging, GPU-based fast linear solvers.
We are publishing in IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation,
Computer Physics Communications, Numerical Methods in Engineering, etc. We are avid participants of
CompuMag and CEFC conferences.
Thank you for your attention. Happy browsing.

shows a plane wave hitting upon 6 dielectric cylinders that
spells out COMPEM, which stands for computational
electromagnetics. The incident pulse is Gaussian-modulated
at 1 GHz with unit amplitude. The dielectric cylinders are
about 4 wave length in width and height and have relative
permittivity of 4. The total-field scatter-field boundary
uses the analytic field propagator formulation and the
absorbing boundary uses the uniaxial perfectly matched layer
formulation. The animation is on log scale to magnify the
trapped waves inside the cylinders.
