Academic Research Activities:

DETAILS OF DOCTORAL THESIS:

  • Design and implementation of Ultra-Wide Band(UWB) Antennas: To make the overall wireless system compact, the UWB antennas should be electrically small, low profile and above all PCB integrateable with other subsystems/ components. Therefore, focus of this research work is to develop techniques to enhance the bandwidth of printed antenna, which will lead to further UWB and beyond, that attains a compact size, sufficient gain, high efficiency and near omni-directional azimuthal radiation pattern.
