Tecnologías basadas en metamateriales y su aplicación a la innovación en componentes y sub-sistemas de RF, microondas y milimétricas: circuitos de radiocomunicación

Project Details


This project is presented as a continuation of the coordinated project TEC2004-04249-C02 (METASISTEMS), with the participation of identical partners. The main aim of the project is to further develop the basic metamaterial theory and demonstrate the viability of metamaterial based technologies, to the synthesis and design of RF/microwave/millimetre wave components, circuits and sub-systems, where performance inprovement, size reduction and cost are key issues for the competitiveness. The results achieved so far within the framework of the existing project (METASISTEMS), let us to envisage a promising future for metamaterials in electronics, communication and related technologies. This is related to their unique and controllable electromagnetic properties that may allow for the desing of components and sub-sistems based on a new functionalities, or with high performance, not easily achievable by means of conventional techniques. Within the present project, we will desing and fabricate proof of concept and proptotype devices based on the metamaterial's technology developed by the consortium, with aplication in strategic sectors, such as imaging systems (near field lenses of interest for biomedical companies), broadband and UWB microwave links, radiofrequency identification system (RFID), reconfigurable systems, among others. It is our aim from the acquired experience in previous projects (wich has given relevant results in certain fields, such as microwave filters), to develop meta-components, and meta-circuits with added value, and with actual interest on electronic, communication and related technologies.
