 Our poster in the winter enrichment program poster competition describing A 5.2GHz, 0.5mW RF Powered Wireless Sensor with Dual On-Chip Antennas for Implantable Intraocular Pressure Monitoring has been awarded the second position in the post-doctoral category. The work was lead by Dr Muhammad Arsalan who holds a Natural Science & Engineering Research Council of Canada Fellow and was honored in the GreatGrads list of Carleton University (one of only 22 scientists since 1942). 


There were more than 100 submissions all over the university and 12 faculty members (assistant professors to center directors) vote for all the short listed posters. The contestants were categorized based on their level of educations, not based on their programs or divisions or nature of their research (experimental vs. theoretical). Its worth noting that this 3 year project was partially funded by an AEA grant and has just been accepted at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2013, the premier annual international meeting for technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice. It has also been accepted at the IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters (AWPL) to be included in the Special Cluster on Wireless Power and Data Telemetry for Medical Applications.
