Developing antenna solutions
Explaining his project, Associate Professor Zhang Yue Ping, who is with NTU's School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, said: "A 60-GHz radio is targeted for home video streaming and instantaneous bulky file transfer. An antenna plays a key role in the radio as it has independent properties that affect the radio as a whole. It is the antenna that makes wireless possible. Conventional 60-GHz antenna designs are often too large, expensive and difficult to integrate with the 60-GHz radio chipset. The project will demonstrate new grid array antennas and their integration method for an innovative solution of 60-GHz radio devices based on locally accessible low temperature cofired ceramic (LTCC) technology."
"It is indeed an honour to receive the grant from the NRF," said Associate Professor Zhang. "It is an acknowledgement that the project proposed by our team is of the highest scientific standard with immediate commercialisation possibility. The team was awarded the Best Paper Prize at the Third IEEE Workshop on Antenna Technology 2007 held in Cambridge University. We are looking forward to address the key challenges in the development of antenna solutions for 60-GHz radios."
PhD student at NTU's School of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Ms Eunice Goh Shing Mei, said: "My project is about producing a low-cost, high-performance anti-reflective coating for use on optical and optoelectronic devices."
"I feel honoured to be awarded," said Ms Goh. "This is an opportunity to further develop my project and hopefully, it will be a stepping stone for me to contribute
