The Institute of Microwaves and Photonics has a history of pre-eminence in high frequency electronics, incorporating fundamental understanding, design, modelling, and fabrication of devices, components, and subsystems from 1 GHz through to terahertz (THz) frequencies.
Over the last decade, the scope of the Institute has expanded significantly to include quantum electronic devices and semiconductor nanotechnology, and the emerging field of bio-nanoelectronics.
Research areas include:
- Terahertz electronics and photonics
- Quantum electronics and communications
- Microwave and millimetre-wave engineering.
If you would like to discuss an area of research in more detail please contact the Institute Director: Professor Christoph Wälti.
We have opportunities for prospective PhD students including a number of studentships. Informal enquiries can be made to the Institute Director.
