Welcome to the page of the M2M MNT group in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Alberta located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The group leader is Prof. Mojgan Daneshmand, Ph.D, P.Eng, who is a Canada Research Chair in Radio Frequency Microsystems for Communication and Sensing.
Microwave and radio frequency sensor is emerging technology for chemical and physical sensing. They can sense in real time and none contact fashion which makes them suitable for different environments. They are very small, can be conformal to surfaces and are amenable to integration with electronics and microfluidics. Our group is pioneer in establishing high resolution microwave sensing for detecting and monitoring small changes in liquid, gas and solid phase.
As the communication systems advance and lower frequency bands become congested, the operation frequency expands from radio frequency to higher frequency bands such as millimeter-waves. At the same, multifunctionality and reconfigurability is becoming inherent part of mobile systems. To satisfy these demands, our group employs micro/nano technology to create tunable and miniaturized microwave and millimeterwave devices and systems for transceiver’s front end.
Our group is very active in the local Antennas & Propagation (AP) and Microwave Theory & Techniques (MTT) societies which have a joint chapter for the Northern Canada Section of IEEE. Many of our activities are public events that everyone is welcome to attend. Check it out!
