Tian Hong Loh

Principal scientist

Tian Hong Loh received the PhD degree in engineering from the University of Warwick before moving to NPL in 2005. Tian Hong has over 20 years of experience working in areas of antennas, electromagnetics, RF/microwave, wireless communications and radio propagation. He has authored and co-authored over hundred refereed publications, published three book chapters, hold five patents and two best paper awards from international conferences.

He is a visiting professor at University of Surrey, visiting industrial fellow at University of Cambridge, senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). He has involved in several international activities, including:

  • UK representative for Commission A (Electromagnetic Metrology) of Union Radio-Scientifique Internationale (URSI) (2014 – Present)

  • Project coordinator of an European Association of National Metrology Institutes (EURAMET) European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) project on ‘Metrology for 5G Communications’ (2015 – 2018)

  • Guest editor of IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation (MAP) special issue on ‘Metrology for 5G Technologies’ (2018 - Present)

  • Associate editor of IET MAP (2018 – Present)

  • Associate editor of IET Communications (COMMS) Journals (2016 – Present)

  • Associated editor of URSI radio science bulletin (RSB) (2017 – Present)

He was the Technical Programme Committee (TPC) chair of 2017 IEEE International Workshop on Electromagnetics (iWEM 2017). He has also acted on the session chair and technical programme committee for several international conferences, and as technical reviewer for several international journals and new book proposals.

Areas of interest

Tian Hong is leading work on a wide range of electromagnetic and wireless communication metrology research areas in support of the emerging wireless technologies and applications.

His current research interests include 5G communications, multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) communications, optical wireless communications, smart antennas, small antennas, metamaterials, body-centric communications, in-vehicle communications, wireless sensor network (WSN), electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and computational electromagnetics.
