The Microwave Circuit Technology Group was established in 2001 by Dr. John Papapolymerou and focuses on research in the area of microwave engineering. More specifically, students study and develop novel microwave structures using techniques such as micromachining, RF Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (RF MEMS) devices and Electromagnetic-Bandgap (EBG) structures. There is also an effort on integration of planar RF and microwave circuits (e.g. antennas) on CMOS grade Silicon wafers that traditionally exhibit high loss at this frequency range, as well as an effort on monolithic mixers and multipliers and THz planar structures. The laboratory is equipped with several PCs and workstations that include a variety of software tools for electromagnetic and circuit simulations (HFSS, HP-ADS, Sonnet). In addition, various microwave measurement equipment are available to students for their projects (network and spectrum analyzers, power meters, synthesizers etc.). For fabrication purposes students can use the ECE Microelectronics Research Center (MiRC) that houses state-of-the-art equipment for integrated circuit development.
