3D Elements For Phased Array Systems (3D-Antenna)

Themes: Advanced Antenna Architectures

The goal is to develop 3D antenna elements for phased arrays with integrated filtering solutions and suitable pattern shaping.
The aim of this Ph.D. project is to develop a novel radiating element for a wide field-of-view, high efficiency phased array antenna with integrated filtering solutions and suitable pattern shaping, which on one hand is compatible with a modular front-end architecture, and on the other hand allows maintaining low the recurring costs and manufacturing complexity. For this purpose the applicability of novel technologies that allow for a 3D development of the antenna element will be investigated.
