Summary

Stepan Lucyszyn PhD, DSc, FIEEE, is Professor of Millimetre-wave Systems at Imperial College London.

      After working in industry, as a satellite systems engineer for maritime and military communications, he spent 12 years researching microwave and millimetre-wave RFIC/MMICs. He co-edited a popular book on RFIC/MMICs, published by the IEE (now IET) in 2001. This book was translated into Chinese in 2007. For his contributions to RFIC/MMICs, he was made an Adjunct Professor at UESTC (Chengdu, China) in 2008.

      In 2001, Prof. Lucyszyn started working on RF MEMS. In 2004, he published a review paper on RF MEMS technology, which won an IEE Premium Award in 2005. He edited the book entitled Advanced RF MEMS, published by Cambridge University Press in 2010. For his contributions to RF MEMS, he was made a Guest Professor at Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in 2008.

      Prof. Lucyszyn first starting working on millimetre-wave and terahertz technologies in 1992 and 1996, respectively. In 2010, he was awarded the DSc degree (higher doctorate) of Imperial College for his contributions to Millimetre-wave and Terahertz Electronics. In 2011, he introduced the concept and has since been pioneering ‘over the THz horizon’ thermal infrared ‘THz Torch’ technologies. In 2012, he co-founded the cross-disciplinary Centre for Terahertz Science and Engineering at Imperial College London. Prof. Lucyszyn has served as a founding member of the Steering Group for the UK’s EPSRC Terahertz Network (TeraNet) and in 2016 joined the IEEE Technical Committee for Terahertz Technology and Applications (MTT-4). More recently, he has concentrated his activities on 3D printing technologies for microwave, millimetre-wave and terahertz applications. For his contributions to passive component technologies, he was made a Visiting Professor at Tohoku University (Sendai, Japan) in 2019.

      Prof. Lucyszyn has (co-)authored well over 200 papers and 12 book chapters in applied physics and engineering and served as Editor-in-Chief for the International Journal of Electronics, Associate Editor for the Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems and sat on the Editorial Boards for the international journals Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation and Wireless Power Transfer. In addition, he has delivered many Plenary and Keynote presentations at international conferences and served as a member of TPCs and prize committees for various international conferences. He was a member of both the EuMA General Assembly, representing Group 4 (UK, Ireland, Gibraltar, Malta), and EuMA Steering Committee. Prof. Lucyszyn was the Chairman of the 41st European Microwave Conference, held in Manchester (UK, 2011) and co-chaired the 11th European Microwave Integrated Circuits Conference, held in London (UK, 2016).

      He was an IEEE Distinguished Microwave Lecturer (DML) for 2010-12, Emeritus DML for 2013 and appointed a EuMA European Microwave Lecturer (EML) in 2013. Prof. Lucyszyn has been elected to Fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK, 2005), Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (UK, 2005), Fellow of The Electromagnetics Academy (USA, 2008) and Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (USA, 2014).

      In Apr. 2014, he co-founded the Imperial College London spin-out company Drayson Wireless Ltd., being a co-inventor in two patent families associated with radiative and inductive wireless power transfer. Over the past few years, Prof. Lucyszyn has evaluated numerous international research grant proposals and sat on funding panels within Europe and North America
