Project: Electromagnetic characterisation of materials for industrial applications up to microwave frequencies

Advances in electronics technology lie behind all developments in information technology and communications, and there is a world-wide demand for ever-faster electronics. To cope with the increasingly high operational speeds of modern electronic equipment, new measurement techniques are required to assess the electromagnetic materials used in the fastest applications – at microwave frequencies up to 80 GHz. To support these emerging industrial needs, this project developed a range of metrological tools which provide accurate measurement of key electromagnetic parameters at nano, micro and macro-scales. The availability of such measurements will support industrial innovation in new products with higher performance and improved energy efficiency, and their efficient production. This will contribute to the development of technologies such as piezoelectrics, ferroelectrics, thin films, graphene and higher frequency medical ultrasound imaging.
