The research of the Electromagnetic Radiation Group (GRE) is focused on the analysis and design of antennas for microwave, millimeter and THz applications, and in the study of propagation and modeling of the radio channel, both theoretically and experimental (propagation measures).
GRE has long experience in the design of wideband and multiband antennas for mobile and wireless systems using the Theory of Characteristic Modes. Antennas for mobile terminals, MIMO and UWB systems, DVB-T/DVB-H standards and for vehicular applications have been designed by the research group in the framework of different projects.
GRE has also a solid experience in slotted waveguide array design for radar and satellite communication applications, developing efficient software tools for its analysis and design. More recently, GRE investigates on new wave guiding structures based on the use of novel artificial surfaces which are suitable for millimeter and submillimeter-wave bands and on novel THz wave guiding structures.
Also the GRE, has a line of work focused on the study of the propagation and modeling of the radio channel. Narrowband propagation loss models are developed and broadband aspects related to dispersion are covered in time and frequency. Channel models are developed and validated based on measurement campaigns in real scenarios. We
GRE members have led and participated in several research projects relating these research areas and achieved results are available through the numerous papers listed in the publications menu.
GRE has strong links with well-known companies in the antenna field and has been an active member of the Antenna Center of Excellence (ACE) European Network and the European School of Antennas (ESoA).
