Project Description

Wireless communication systems expanding at a very high rate with high capacity requirements. Social media applications and life style choices have resulted in very high data rates. Frequency re-use techniques can be employed to enhance capacity if reconfigurable narrow beam antenna designs can be developed. Phased array antennas are capable of producing reconfigurable beams, however these antenna arrays require larger space to be installed. This project will look into developing low profile, broadband, pattern reconfigurable single feed antenna design to address these requirements. Such designs also need to have capabilities to cover the azimuth plane with fine resolution and also have capabilities to cover the elevation plane to some extent for applications in urban areas. Applicants with electronic engineering background with interest in electromagnetics are welcome to apply.

Funding Notes

Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: View Website. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.
