Facilities

The main facility in the lab is the anechoic room. The room size is 4 m x 5 m  and it allows measurements between 2 GHz and 26.5 GHz. The room hosts a two-axis positioner by Orbit FR, which allows to scan the full 3D sphere surrounding the antenna under test. The positioner is remotely controlled through a PC software provided my MI Technologies. To perform absolute gain measurements, a set of standard gain horn antennas is available. The data are collected through a Vector Network Analyzer, which can also be remotely controlled. The room is also suitable for customized experiments that do not require an antenna positioner.

A microscope station is used for quality control of custom built PCB antennas.

The lab has available licenses of ADS, FEKO and HFSS to perform EM simulations.
