Liu Wins ACES Award for Work in PSTD Method

April 5, 2018

The Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society conferred its highest award to Liu for his pioneering contributions to the field

Qing Liu, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke UniversityQing Liu, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University, was recently awarded the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES) Computational Electromagnetics Award for his pioneering contributions to the Pseudospectral Time Domain (PSTD) method in computational electromagnetics. The PSTD algorithm is used to simulate electromagnetic waves in inhomogeneous, conductive media, and due to its efficiency is ideal for parallel computation of large-scale problems.

Liu’s research interests extend from computational electromagnetics to acoustics, inverse problems, and their application in geophysics, nanophotonics and biomedical imaging. He has published more than 300 refereed journal papers in these areas. 

Liu accepted the award, along with a plaque, at a ceremony that took place at the 2018 ACES Conference in Denver, Colorado.
