Weekly Seminar: “Harmonically Tuned Amplifiers for Future Wireless Communications Systems”

ABSTRACT: High data-rate communication systems require the transmission of radio frequency (RF) signals which are modulated in both amplitude and phase, presenting peak power envelope swings exceeding ten times their average power levels. In wireless communication systems, it is a significant challenge to transmit high peak-to-average-power-ratio signals whilst maintaining a high degree of energy efficiency. However, [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “mmWaves in 5G NR cellular networks: a system level perspective”

20 September 2018 - 20 September 2018

ABSTRACT: Communication at mmWave frequencies will play a key role in next generation 5G cellular networks. However, mobile scenarios are the most challenging for mmWave cellular systems, due to the high propagation loss, the relatively small coverage area of individual cells, and rapid channel dynamics caused by blockage events. In this talk, Michele Polese will [...]
