He has received notable awards for his achievements, is a fellow of the IEEE and the Royal Society of Canada.

Also, at the University of Toronto, he heads a group for research in novel electromagnetic materials. He has also contributed book chapters to several books on antennas and transmission line theory that utilize metamaterials, along with other novel concepts, and is co-editor of one book in the same field. Professor Eleftheriades is also the author and co-author of a significant volume of published research in peer reviewed journals.[1][2][3][4]

Awards and recognitions[edit]

Professor Eleftheriades was elected IEEE fellow "for contributions to conception, analysis and fabrication of electromagnetic materials and their applications."[5][1][6][7][2]

He received the 2008 IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award, a Technical Field Award conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors.[8]
