High Frequency MEMS

See project descriptions

The High frequency MEMS Thrust undertakes research in three subject areas namely RF MEMS, Optical MEMS and THz MEMS, all from basic science as well as applied research perspective. The Thrust is exploring advanced RF devices and Microsystems, high-Q optical and acoustic resonators, terahertz modulators, imagers and sources, miniaturized antennas, MEMS meta-materials, plasmonics and near field optics. The microsystems developed under this thrust have applications in reconfigurable radios, medical and subsurface imaging, satellite mapping, and remote sensing, to name a few.
