Raymond C Rumpf
Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering - Computational Science

Dr. Raymond C. Rumpf’s research is focused on developing revolutionary technologies in electromagnetics and circuits that are enabled by 3D printing. Since joining UTEP in Fall 2010, his team has already developed an array of significant breakthroughs. These include spatially variant anisotropic metamaterials to improve electromagnetic compatibility between components placed in close proximity, spatially variant self-collimating photonic crystals to control the flow of waves in optical integrated circuits, and the world’s highest power microwave frequency selective surface which also broke records for bandwidth and field-of-view. Dr. Rumpf brings nearly 15 years of industry experience to UTEP making him exceptional at building teams and leading diverse research projects. He offers UTEP an extraordinarily comprehensive knowledge of electromagnetics, photonics, and numerical modeling of devices. His research team is the best in the world at developing all-dielectric structures, but he is active in many areas including metamaterials, photonic crystals, antennas, frequency selective surfaces, nanophotonics, devices for extreme environments, and computational electromagnetics.
