Established in 1968 the Antennas & Electromagnetics Research Group undertakes a wide range of research covering the very broad range of Frequencies from 10MHz to 5THz.

Company profile

We have comprehensive experimental facilities housed in the Antenna Measurement Laboratory, which has recently received £1m in infrastructure investment.

Our “wireless” based research on antennas for mobile communications includes multiband antennas, multiple antennas for MIMO applications, Ultra wideband (UWB) antennas, semi-smart base station antennas and antennas and radio propagation for body centric communications. The group has strong links with industry and a current active grant portfolio of over £6m, which includes a prestigious EPSRC platform grant valued at £1m to fund post-doctoral researchers in the field of antennas for healthcare and imaging.

In the area of metamaterials we study computational electromagnetic models for both active and passive structures. We study new nano-materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes that offer possible advances in antennas and metamaterials. We develop software techniques to exploit the concepts of Transformation Electromagnetics, offering such novel devices as flat multi-reflector antennas and cloaking devices.

We recently received a major EPSRC Programme Grant valued at £4.4m called Quest (“The Quest for Ultimate Electromagnetics using Spatial Transformations”) where we are working with colleagues from Oxford (Materials Dept.) , St Andrews (Physics) and Exeter (Physics) to research and bring to practical applications this exciting new concept of controlling how electromagnetic waves propagate by controlling the materials properties in 3D.

Our research on Terahertz Spectroscopy aims to help scientists visualize structures such as proteins and actively enhance chemical reactions. In the area of antennas and healthcare we study the interaction of electromagnetic waves with biological tissue, dosimetry, wireless implants and RF sensors for example in blood glucose monitoring.

We also apply CEM to Microwave Electron Tube Devices to understand design of magnetrons with the aim of developing compact high power millimetrewave sources. In the area of metrology we work on near-field measurement, millimetrewave imaging for security and compact antenna test range development.
