Description of the thesis topic
The PhD will be realized in the frame of LEANPOD project. The objective is the design of miniature and reconfigurable antennas dedicated to industrial Internet of Things to have good performance in harsh environment. Multi-standard and multi-band operation will be also targeted in order to have many features with a single device.
The final solution must fulfill several technical, industrial and economical criteria's, defined by the final application. IoT sensors will take place on various support (metal, dielectric, human body …). To do so, the system must be compact, simple and robust with a good antenna efficiency and low cost. To support multi-band and multi standard, frequency reconfiguration will be investigated. Capability to provide positioning indoor and outdoor will be also focused. First development will be realized with UWB technology. In a second step, specific solution based on LoRa technology will be analyzed.
The research work will be realized in the frame of 3 year PhD thesis, following the working plan :
▪ State of the Art review from existing for reconfigurable antenna for LoRA and UWB standards.
▪ Antenna solution proposal targetting compactness and reonfigurability, with integration constraints
▪ Prototype fabrication.
▪ Test and measurement of the antenna performance.
The PhD student will benefit from the facilities available in LEAT for modelling (HFSS, CST), prototyping and measurement (anechoic chamber).
