Electromagnetics & Microwaves

Electromagnetics and microwave research explores several areas, ranging from cutting-edge theoretical studies to commercially- and industrially-relevant applied work. Our researchers in this field seek to understand, control, and apply the physical phenomena associated with electric and magnetic fields, including the propagation of electromagnetic waves. These concepts underlie everything from voltage and current inside a circuit, to radio-wave propagation between antennas, to the interaction of light and matter at the nanoscale. Radio frequencies, microwaves, and millimetre-wave frequencies constitute a very important part of the electromagnetic spectrum, and find practical applications in wireless and satellite communications, radar, sensing, astronomy, high-speed microelectronics, and biomedical imaging.
