Antennas and Wireless Sensors

Three main research areas of the Antennas and Wireless Sensors group are Antennas for mobile devices, Beam-steerable millimeter-wave antennas for mobile networks and RF-powered wireless devices.

We are surrounded by wireless devices and majority of the internet traffic goes through antennas. We develop antennas that produce radiation more efficiently, can focus the energy to the receiver, and can simultaneously utilize many propagation paths (MIMO antennas). Better antennas result into lower power consumption, longer range, better reliability and increased data rates.

There are three main research areas in the field of antennas and wireless sensors:
