Our research is focused on the application of surface and bulk micromachining to the development of new devices and circuits. We are currently working on the development of micromachined submillimeter-wave circuits for developing waveguide based receiver technology, RF-MEMS devices for cryogenic applications, and cavity based measurements of permittivity for fluids. Previous work includes the development of MEMS based microwave and millimeter-wave phase shifters and wideband switches, wideband monopulse processor circuits and recievers, and polarization agile recievers.
