Stephan ten BrinkTalk Title: Near Gaussian Multiple Access Channel Capacity Detection and Decoding

Biography:

Stephan ten Brink is a faculty member at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, since July 2013, where he is head of the Institute of Telecommunications. From 1995 to 1997 and 2000 to 2003, Dr. ten Brink was with Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, New Jersey, conducting research on multiple antenna systems. From July 2003 to March 2010, he was with Realtek Semiconductor Corp., Irvine, California, as Director of the wireless ASIC department, developing WLAN and UWB single chip MAC/PHY CMOS solutions. In April 2010, he returned to Bell Laboratories as Department Head of the Wireless Physical Layer Research Department in Stuttgart, Germany. Dr. ten Brink is a recipient and co-recipient of several awards, including the Vodafone Innovation award, the IEEE Stephen O. Rice Paper Prize, and the IEEE Communications Society Leonard G. Abraham Prize for contributions to channel coding and signal detection for multiple-antenna systems. He is best known for his work on iterative decoding (EXIT charts) and MIMO communications (soft sphere detection, massive MIMO).
