The mission of the Wireless Devices and Electromagnetics Laboratory (WiDE) is to advance the state of the art of wireless circuits and antennas (up to mm-wave frequencies) while educating the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs in this domain.
In order to improve the performance of wireless devices, lab individuals perform focused research on:
- Material engineering.
- Novel manufacturing techniques.
- Optimized antenna and circuit geometries.
- Other concerns related to the real-world implementation of high-performance wireless devices.
Laboratory researchers have expertise on a wide range of topics in avionics and aerospace communications and sensing, including RADAR, satellite communications, and UAS Sense and Avoid.
