Microwave and Millimeter Wave Systems

Innovations in microwave system design using better analog and digital receiver technologies are making new electromagnetic measurements possible. 
Multi-channel, wide bandwidth, fully coherent systems are being developed and applied in areas such as:

  • wireless communications and
  • radio astronomy. 

ESL possesses cutting-edge microwave systems laboratory that support the compact radar range and various microwave system research programs. Recent work revolves several network analyzers and sources, enabling measurements between 300 KHz to 750 GHz.

While these systems are primarily for testing components, they are also being used to develop devices and systems which are not commercially available, including:

  • new types of antennas,
  • receivers,
  • transmitters, and
  • controlling apparatus
  • millimeter wave communications and imaging
  • pulsed-radar systems
