By using modern EM software in the design process, such as HFSS, CST Microwave Studio and others, you have the opportunity to develop passive microwave components, antennas (2.4, 5, 10, 77, >100 GHz), RF circuits (active & passive), amplifiers, oscillators, couplers, and much more. Interesting applications include RFID, Bluetooth, ZigBee, Wifi (2.4 GHz, 5.x GHz, 60 GHz), E-band communication (71 - 76 GHz, 81 - 86 GHz) and automotive radar (76-81 GHz, >100 GHz), weather radar, radar for earth observation, etc.
The practical work gives you the opportunity to gain experience with modern RF and microwave devices, such as network analyzers (VNA), wafer prober stations and anachoic chambers.
Are you interested in writingyour thesis with us?
Please contact Prof. Schneider or one of our research assistants and make an appointment. In a personal conversation you find out on which topics we can offer student research projects. We will also be happy to give you literature recommendations so that you can familiarise yourself with the topic in question. Of course, you can also make your own suggestions, provided that they fit in with our main topics.
