The PhD will be based within the Cardiff Catalysis Institute (CCI) (www.cf.ac.uk/cci) which is one of the leading centres for catalyst research focussed on improving the understanding of catalysis, developing new catalytic processes with industry and promoting the use of catalysis as a sustainable 21st century technology.
Microwave systems are becoming more mainstream with wearable applications needing to work at higher frequencies. There is a requirement for circuits and devices that can perform at these frequencies in a cost-effective manner.
Recent scientific and operational applications in different fields (e.g. meteorology, hydrology, agriculture) have introduced the need for higher space-time monitoring of the Earth’s atmosphere and surface.
