Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The GEMMA Group tries to combine disruptive research with technology transfer based on such
research activities, beyond the state-of-the art. The activity of GEMMA since its creation more
than 15 years ago has been focused on RF/microwave engineering, with emphasis on the
application of advanced concepts and technologies (e.g., metamaterials, electromagnetic
symmetry properties, printed electronics and 3D printing, microfluidics, etc.) to the design of
advanced devices/systems with novel or improved functionalities and/or with reduced size/cost.
The main research activities and associated scientific challenges for the next three years are
mainly circumscribed within two main areas:
(i) Microwave sensors and sensing systems: Microwave encoders (motion sensors) and highly
sensitive permittivity sensors (dielectric characterization of solids and liquids)
(ii) Radiofrequency identification (RFID): Chipless and chipped RFID tags on new materials
(substrates and inks)

Research lines

  • Research lines:
  • Microwave sensors
