Hualiang (Bruce) Zhang is currently an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Enginnering Department, University of North Texas (UNT). Before he came to UNT, he was a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, USA.
Currently Dr. Zhang's research interests are in: 1. Nano-Photonics including design of surface plasmonic polariton devices, optical nano-antennas, etc. 2. RF / microwave circuits designs including designs of compact, tunable, and reconfigurable filters; synthesis of advanced canonical filter networks; designs of dual-band passive microwave components 3. metamaterials with near-zero / negative refraction index and their applications 4. antenna designs such as reconfigurable UWB antenna, electrically small antenna, and conformal antenna 5. RF / microwave characterizations of advanced materials 6. electromagnetic cloakings 7. RF MEMS passive structures (designs, fabrications, and characterizations) 8. optimization methods especially their applications to RF / microwave circuit designs
