This course on “Ultra Wideband Antennas, Technologies
and Applications“ will present an insight into the design, evaluation and
measurement procedures for ultra wideband (UWB) systems and the characteristics
of the UWB radio channel. Special care is taken regarding impulse applications,
including dispersion, antenna fidelity, shaping filters and UWB-M-Sequence
devices. State of the art topics regarding UWB systems in the fields of
communications, Radar and sensor networks will be presented. Information for
ranging, localization, and UWB-sensing for non-destructive testing and medical
applications are included. Further, favorable applications presented are Ground
Penetrating Radar (GPR) and imaging. Wideband material characterization is a
prerequisite for this.
The lectures will be complemented with laboratory tutorials including antenna
design, UWB measurements, detection of hidden objects and wave propagation
Course schedule: 17 lecture hours (34 x 45min)
Prerequisites: The course is targeted to PhD students,
researchers, scientists, and engineers.
Availability: max. 18 students
Student grant information: COST Action TU1208 “Civil Engineering Applications
of Ground Penetrating Radar” grants up to 5 participants the course fee of €
