Applied electromagnetics (EM) plays an essential role in areas such as wireless technologies, the environment, life sciences, transportation, and more. Faculty and students perform research in all aspects of applied EM, including Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Circuits, MEMS Circuits, Antennas, Wave Propagation Studies for Wireless Applications, Scattering, Computational Electromagnetics, Active and Passive Microwave Remote Sensing, Plasma Electrodynamics, and EM Metamaterials.
Faculty in this area make up the Radiation Laboratory (Radlab). The Radlab’s reputation and sustained preeminence dates back to the end of World War II, and is now a leading RF and electromagnetics laboratory with strong theoretical and experimental research, major laboratory facilities, and rich undergraduate and graduate curricula.
The Radiation Laboratory is equipped with a variety of state-of-the-art microwave and millimeter-wave test equipment, anechoic chambers, near-field and far-field antenna measurement systems, EMC/EMI testing facilities, microwave and millimeter-wave fabrication facilities, polarimetric radar systems covering 0.1-210 GHz, and extensive computational facilities.
