The Antenna Laboratory in the ECE Department is a small-scale laboratory
with emphasis on numerical optimization and prototyping of
selected antenna types
The laboratory invites interested domestic and international students to apply for a graduate study
in the areas of antenna modeling and design.
Ongoing and Past Graduate/UG Projects:
Ring resonator for eps measurement - FR4 (2005)
Foams - suspended ring resonator on FR4 (2005)
Active Antenna (2004-2005)
Selected Senior Undergraduate Projects:
2. Thomas, Kondel (900 MHz wireless link) 2005
3. Mathew, Sethi , Abramson, Kashef, Gendron (PANSAT patch antennas) 2003-2004 (together with Profs. Looft, Michalson, Labonte)
4. Berezin, Kulbacka, Cantara (900 MHz Scanning Array) 2002-2003 (Supported by MIT Haystack Observatory, IEEE UG Antennas and Propagation Society Scholarship)
