PhD: Design of innovative microwave devices and subsystems using hybrid PCB and 3D printing technology
The candidate will be integrated into an internationally-recognized dynamic research group (gathering more than 10 PhD students) focusing on microwave components and systems providing original solutions in various domains such as telecommunications, defense and health. Joining us is also a possibility to have regular contact with industry-related research through the Thales-Lab-STICC joint lab. Facilities include highly specialized equipment spanning from simulations (HFSS, ADS, CST…) to technological realization (SLA and FDM Printers…) and measurement (VNA up to 110GHz).
The offered PhD position is related to an ANR-DGA ASTRID project called TANGO focusing on the use of 3D-printing for functional packaging and the multi-technology integration for RF electronics purposes. The hired person will be in charge of the development of innovative microwave devices using hybrid PCB and 3D-printing technology. The design of functional interconnexions will also be part of the tasks, together with the interactions with the project partners (SMEs and Major).
