About PEM

The technical committee on photonics-applied electromagnetic measurement was organized in the IEICE communication society in 2012. The committee comprises the experts from various research fields such as antenna, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and optical sensor. Through discussions between the researchers, we consider a new technique using photonic technologies for precisely measuring electromagnetic fields.

Please come and join us in Kyoto, Japan, for a technical event not to be missed.
