The research activities within the Department of Microwave Systems and Nanotechnology focus on emerging communications and sensing technologies, with expertise covering a broad spectrum of frequencies from RF, microwave and millimeter wave, to sub-THz. The areas of applications address a number of sectors from telecommunications, automotive, space, defense, to health and biomedical, security and monitoring.

The focus of our work includes energy harvesting systems and self-powered sensors, radio frequency identification (RFID) and wireless power transfer (WPT), flexible electronics, smart textiles, inkjet printing fabrication and carbon nanotubes, substrate integrated waveguide technology, micromachining technology, RF-MEMS and solid state based reconfigurable microwave/millimeter-wave circuits, power amplifiers, and new electronic materials including multiferroics, superconductors and acoustic devices.
