Areas of Interest
The focus of Professor Chisum’s group is to develop circuit and antenna systems for millimeter-wave (MMW) wireless communications and sensing with dramatically improved performance over the state of the art, or which exhibit completely new functionality to enable new concepts.
They do this by taking advantage of inherent characteristics in advanced materials and devices that fundamentally benefit the circuit/antenna system. Research includes MMW artificial materials and metamaterials for efficient and linear scanning GRIN lens antennas for satcom, MMW 5G and beyond; phase-change materials for programmable antennas and circuits; and nonlinear microwave and microwave/magnetic transceivers and sensors for low-power sensing.
