RF Microsystems Overview
The research in our group is interdisciplinary and centers around two areas of micro/nanotechnology and electromagnetics. Our approach is to use novel microfabricaton techniques to develop small scale high frequency
electromagnetic devices and systems. Specifically, we are focused on reconfigurable antennas and circuits, millimeter-wave (30-300 GHz) antennas, phased arrays, innovative beam steering techniques, terahertz (>300 GHz) microsystems, sensors, novel materials, and microfabrication processes. Occasionally our research intersects with the microwave area (<30 GHz).
-Phase-change materials and devices
-Reconfigurable antennas and components
-Electrical characterization of novel materials
-Novel materials and microfabrication processes
-Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)
HOW DO WE PERFORM OUR RESEARCH?
Our research is mainly composed of the following three phases: 1) design and simulation, 2) micro fabrication, 3) test and measurement. We use the following tools to conduct our work in each phase
