Additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D-printing, is bringing a revolution to most engineering areas. It is not just about changing fabrication processes and materials, but more importantly, enabling powerful new concepts and designs not feasible or affordable with traditional manufacturing. In parallel, personal communications present a meteoric evolution that impregnates each one’s life and habits. This growth will continue embodying concepts like the Internet of Things (IoT), satellite communications and next generation mobile communications (beyond 5G). It will transparently link much more users, machines, sensors and virtual nodes through land and satellite infrastructures. It requires effective low-cost solutions for mass-market. AM will play a role, and antennas are a key player in wireless systems. The project focuses on the development of new antenna concepts using AM for 5G, Satellite communications, IoT and associated applications, such as body-area networks.

General Requirements    

1.  Doctorate degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering

2. Strong verifiable expertise on mm-wave antenna design and analysis

3. Expertise on commercial full-wave 3D EM simulators (e.g. CST, HFSS, Feko)

4. Experience with 3D-printed antenna design, fabrication, and test

5. Good command of written and spoken English language

General Objectives

Development of antenna concepts based on solid background and on electromagnetics and on commercial full-wave 3D EM simulators for mm-Wave applications related to satellite communications, and biomedical applications that can benefit from emerging 3D printing technologies, using either polymer-based or metal materials.

Development of TRL4 prototypes and its experimental validation.
