Design and Analysis of Communication Antennas

Advisor: Prof. Chalmers Butler

The Computational Electromagnetics Group, part of the Wireless Communications Program at Clemson, conducts research in the area of communication  antennas.  The effort encompasses theoretical and computational analysis, laboratory experimentation, and optimization and design.  The objective is to develop the tools needed to design communications antennas that exhibit prescribed characteristics dictated by a specific need or specified by an end user.  The goal may be, to mention three, to develop an ultra broadband antenna, an antenna that operates efficiently and effectively at two or more frequencies simultaneously, or one that interacts only weakly with the platform on which it is mounted.  These are excessive demands on traditional antennas so new approaches must be taken and new antennas must be developed.  A student involved in this research project would work with senior graduate students and faculty in one or two facets of the program, ranging from analysis and computation to model fabrication and measurements.
