Uppsala University is the oldest university in the Nordic countries – founded in 1477 having three Disciplinary Domains: Arts and Social Sciences, Medicine and Pharmacy, and Science and Technology. The University has about 5,000 employees and more than 40,000 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in courses.

The participants from Uppsala University belongs to the Microwave Group (MG) at the Department of Engineering Sciences at the Angstrom Laboratory.

Relevant expertise in the MG for the NANOTEC are design and fabrication of antennas and integration technology for wireless sensors operating between 2.4 GHz and the THz region for health, security and safety applications. The wireless sensors are either monolithic hybrid designs like 24 GHz monolithically antenna integrated front ends for sensor applications and hybrid antenna integrated for the 110 – 170 GHz band. Another key research areas for the MG is adaptive wireless interfaces for sensor networks, e.g. networks on cargo train wagons and wireless sensor body area networks (WBAN) where MG is working in the VINNOVA Vinn-excellence center for Wireless Sensor Networks (WISENET).

The MG group has participated in several EU projects e.g. NoE: AMICOM, NoE: NewCom, IP: e-CUBES, IP: RF Platform, STREP: Artemis. Present running projects are STREP: ULTRA, ADOSE, SATURN, MiniMEMS (EURIPIDES).

The MG is also member in the Scientific Advisory Board and Key Technology Group of the European Technical Platform on Smart Systems Integration, EPoSS.


Resources: The facilities at Uppsala (Angstrom Laboratory) include a fully equipped clean room of 2,500 m2. Microwave CAD (ADS, Ansoft, CST-Studio, HFSS, Momentum, IE3D) and measurement equipments (e.g. VNA's) for analysis up to 325 GHz, multimode reverberation and anechoic chamber for antenna beam pattern
