The Centre for Wireless Communications

The Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC) RF group studies various research aspects of radio engineering from RF architectures to antennas and integrated circuits including experimental setups from radio channels to RF transceivers. 

In the research, we seek solutions for overcoming the bottleneck for extremely high data rates in future digital processing and especially in 6G-related research look for physical boundaries towards upper mmW and THz frequencies.

The group aims to solve electromagnetic challenges in radio frequency communication by utilizing new concepts of integrated phased arrays, their electrical components from antennas to integrated circuits, multibeam lens antenna systems, RIS and the near-field communication of the extremely large antenna arrays.

Most of the research is proven with experimental setups in the lab facilities reaching frequencies up to and above 300GHz.
