1. Experimentally characterize a set of existing TRL calibration kits, and develop a calibration procedure suitable for the targeted characterization of antennas. 2. Characterize experimentally patch antenna arrays of 1x4 and 4x4 elements, both in terms of input impedance as well as in terms of radiation pattern. 3. Refine existing HFSS simulation models, taking advantage of the obtained experimental results, and compare experimental results with simulated ones. 4. Design a new version of the patch antenna element, as well as the patch antenna array, while taking into account the previously obtained experimental results. 5. Characterize experimentally the new version of the developed antennas and compare experimental results with simulated ones. 6. Prepare the submission of a journal paper. 7. Write the grant activities report
MSc in Electrical Engineering, or similar. The awarding of the grant is dependent on the applicants' enrolment in study cycle or non-award courses of Higher Education Institutions.
