Available Projects

  • Advances in signal processing platforms and microwave signal capture have allowed for new architectures of sensors to be developed. Specifically, both the ability to capture higher bandwidth and higher dynamic range as well as the associated processing hardware being capable of more calculations per second.

    Harnessing these new capabilities, requires a combination of hardware and software processing, and will enable the development of more and lower cost electromagnetic imaging systems.

    A working knowledge in signal processing and electromagnetics is necessary

  • Electromagnetic imaging techniques have the potential to be used in medical detection, diagnosis and monitoring of different diseases. To that end, electromagnetic sensors that operate efficiently at their near-field and within the frequency of interest should be properly designed to generate and receive utilized electromagnetic waves. This project will aim at designing compact EM sensors, using different techniques such as open-ended coaxial cables or waveguides, substrate integrated waveguides or any suitable near-field antenna. Those sensors should have wide band performance and thus the potential to be used as a portable medical probe or scanner.

    The successful candidate should have a strong background in (a) electromagnetic radiation, and (b) microwave engineering

  • With the fast progress in forming more complex electromagnetic (EM) structures with many design parameters and large demand for real-time solution to complex EM problems in embedded devices, the need for a new EM solving approach that can keep pace with the computational requirements has become more imminent. This project aims at developing a novel computationally efficient EM solver which is implementable on systems with limited resources using physics-informed sparse deep neural network that solves partial differential forms of Maxwell’s equations without relying on other computational EM solver solutions. The successful candidate will specifically develop signal processing and machine learning algorithms for a real-time electromagnetic solver.

  • This project aims at utilizing the electrodynamic properties of artificial materials in designing reconfigurable, or tunable, electromagnetic devices at the microwave frequency band, such as antennas, filters, couplers, etc. The reconfigurability might aim at controlling the center operating frequency, bandwidth, radiation pattern or direction etc. The selected candidate will investigate the effect of different properties of those materials on the electromagnetic reconfigurability of microwave devices.

    The successful candidate should have a strong background in (a) electromagnetics or/and microwave engineering, and (b) measurement techniques of dielectric properties of materials
