Research

The research in the Department of Microwave and Antenna Engineering (DMAE) concentrates on the high frequency and microwave techniques in the range from hundreds of megahertz up to tens of gigahertz. The theoretical research (analysis, synthesis, computer simulation and modeling) and experimental works cover elements (antenna, waveguides, signal couplers and splitters), passive circuits (filters, diplexers, circulators, phase shifters, matched loads, attenuators), active circuits (amplifiers, mixers, modulators) and subsystems (receivers, transmitters, transceivers) that are widely used in modern radiocommunications and radiolocation. Other research activities focus on diffraction of electromagnetic waves as well as investigation and modeling of new artificial materials (metamaterials, chiral and pseudochiral materials) along with their application in microwave and antenna engineering. An important and strongly represented scientific area in DMAE is computational electromagnetics which uses electrodynamics and modern numerical methods for developing efficient analysis and design tools necessary in microwave and antenna engineering. The applied research is conducted in wide and rapidly developing area of wireless technologies covering such systems as passive and active radio identification (RFID), wireless sensor networks (WSN) for telemetering, environmental monitoring, industry automatization or building intelligence. For its scientific and engineering achievements the Department was awarded a status of Center of Excellence (WiComm Center of Excellence for Wireless Communication Engineering) from the Ministry of Science in 2004.
