Postdoc Position in Transparent and 2D-material Embedded Antennas at Chalmers University of Technology

Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in signal processing. This position is available for two years. Applications are welcome before May 25, 2020.

The project aims to develop 2D transparent array antennas for THz and mmWave sensors and communications by using the 2D graphene technology and quasi-2D nano-mesh film technology. Transparent array antennas have many applications in sensor and communication systems. For example, the windows and lamps of autonomous vehicles can be utilized as the place for antennas in sensors and communication systems to integrate transparent array antennas seamlessly with the aerodynamic and aesthetic requirements for vehicles. Mobile handset's screen can be also integrated with transparent array antennas for short distance communications, sensing and monitoring, such as collecting human being's data continuously like blood pressure, breath frequency and heart beat rate and more. The graphene is a 2D material and has high conductivity at THz regime, of a transparent form with the single layer version. Due to the special 2D properties of the graphene, some novel antenna types may be able to be realized, such as IC-integrated antennas. Nano-mesh film technology is a quasi-2D technology with extreme thin silver meshes to have transparent conducting sheet.

i) Investigate and utilize the unique and special radiation properties of 2D graphene at THz, and thereafter propose new configurations for transparent array antennas, as well as investigate the possibility of their integration with active and passive components for transmitter/receiver functionalities.

iii) Investigate new configurations and capabilities of nano-mesh transparent array antennas at mmWave for autonomous vehicles' communication and sensing.

This postdoc (postdoc scholarships) candidate will carry out independent research in the project with the study of the radiation characteristics of the 2D graphene sheet at THz frequencies, antenna designs, integration with RF electronics, and verifications and measurements. In addition, a part of teaching (5% – 10% of the working time) including student tutoring is expected. Inter-discipline knowledges on antenna technology, electromagnetics and graphene are preferred. High skills on commercial general electromagnetic solvers, such as CST, HFSS and ADS, are prioritized.

We are looking for a person who is passionate about research with industry oriented solutions, open minded and can perform research in a collaborative in team. We prioritize the following qualifications:

The application should be marked with Ref 20200208 and written in English. The application should be sent electronically and be attached as pdf-files, as below:
