Boubacar Kante: Metamaterials development will benefit from industry-research collaboration
Two-dimensional metasurfaces offer potentially practical applications in medicine and communications, including cloaking.
Boubacar Kante is an assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a Qualcomm faculty scholar at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). His research is dedicated to unraveling and exploiting the possibilities of using electromagnetic wave to achieve novel functions and devices in fields ranging from global energy, defense, and medicine. Kante received his Ph.D in Physics from Universite Paris Sud (Orsay-France) and was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, from 2010 to 2013.
Prof. Kante's multidisciplinary research interests are in the areas of wave-matter interaction, from microwave to optics and related fields such as nanophotonics, nanoscale photon management, and biophysics.
