Project Overview

This project aims at establishing new partnerships and reinforcing already existing ones between two European and three non-European research institutions, through a structured programme of exchange of researchers and coordinated multiannual joint research programme in the field of multiband electronically reconfigurable microwave devices and antennas. The participating institutions from Serbia, United Kingdom, Russia, South Africa and USA, chosen for the diversity in their respective expertise and research approaches, are recognized world-wide as leaders in research and innovation. The wide scope and depth of the knowledge accumulated in the consortium offers a unique opportunity for exchanged researchers to undertake cutting-edge research under mentorship of experienced senior researchers.

The main technical goal of the joint research programme is to encourage the application of emerging technologies and result in the development of low-cost miniature tunable and reconfigurable microwave devices and antennas for future multifunctional wireless systems.

Main research targets:

 development of compact microwave devices and antennas with multiple functionalities

 development and applications of novel artificially structured materials like metamaterials, controllable electromagnetic band gap materials, and reconfigurable metamaterials

 applications of fractal curves in the design of compact and multiband devices due to their inherent multimode operation

 development of computationally efficient electromagnetic analysis and optimization tools for multiband reconfigurable devices

 development of low-cost microfabrication techniques using multi-layer technology (LTCC and Thick-Film), ferroelectrics and superconducting technologies.
