Antennas and microwave circuits are integral parts of wireless communication system. The requirement of high data rates in 5G/6G technologies has further emphasized the demand for high efficiency and wide band antennas as well as microwave circuits. The research group at the Department of Electrical Engineering is focused on the design, simulation, fabrication and characterization of efficient as well as low cost antennas and microwave circuits for microwave frequencies.
