Josefsson, Lars

PhD, Lars Microwave, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Dr. Josefsson was with Ericsson Microwave Systems AB in Mölndal, Sweden, for more than 40 years. In 2001 he was appointed Senior Expert in Antenna Systems within the Ericsson Group. Currently he runs his own consulting company.

At Ericsson Dr. Josefsson was responsible for the introduction of new antenna technologies and systems, R&D projects, and antenna related in-house training. He was involved in the early definition phase of many antenna systems that were later put into production by Ericsson, e.g. flat plate antennas, phase steered AEW antennas, and 3D radar antennas including the AESA phased array antenna aimed at next generation airborne radar applications. A major part of his research in recent years deals with array antennas and antenna systems on curved surfaces.

Dr. Josefsson was a Visiting Scientist at UCLA 1982-1983.  He was Adjunct Professor at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg 1983 - 1985, as well as 2004 - 2006. He was also Adjunct Professor at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm 1996 - 2003.

In 1999, he was elected Fellow of the IEEE. In 2004 he received the Thulin Silver Medal from the Swedish Aeronautical Society for his contributions to several generations of airborne radar antenna developments. He has been an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation and is co-author of the book 'Conformal Array Antenna Theory and Design', John Wiley, (2006).

Dr. Josefsson has been a member of the CEI-Europe Faculty since 2007.
