In September, RFIC-Lab*, staffed by seven scientists and fifteen PhD candidates, made it onto the list of research facilities managed jointly by Grenoble Institute of Technology and Grenoble-Alpes University. The lab’s staff, headed by Sylvain Bourdel, is from IMEP-LaHC. The restructuring will raise the international-caliber lab’s profile. RFIC-Lab has authored many articles and presented numerous papers at high-level conferences. Currently, the lab is engaged in two EU projects and two national projects. The lab’s industrial partners include STMicroelectronics and Anritsu.
The researchers design active and passive circuits for RF and millimeter-wave communications. One of their specialty areas is design on “unusual” substrates like metal-nanowire membranes; another is low-power RF.
