The field of microwave-optics studies circuit and electromagnetic wave theories in the RF band, microwave, millimeter wave, and optical wave domains and system technology with their applications. We are conducting basic research necessary to implement high-efficiency/high-integration/low-cost integrated circuits and hardware systems, as well as new ultra-high frequency theory, circuit and component design technology, and system design research required for the future radio technology. Also, research addressing applications to automobiles, 5G communications, security, and defense industries is currently in progress.
Core Electronic Systems
Core Electronic System ranges from basic single transistor electronics to complex electronic systems with millions of devices. This research field can be defined as circuits and systems proposed for various application fields. New types of devices operating on a wide frequency band ranging from less than 1Hz to mm-wave and current state-of-the-art CMOS devices are also included in this area. Integrated circuits and systems have faced many challenges in design and implementation with the advent of new applications such as new medical, IoT, unmanned vehicles, 5G, and stealth defense industries. To solve these technical challenges, research on devices, structures, circuits, and algorithms is in progress.
