WiDE Laboratory

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.
