On May 2nd Microwave Road and Chalmers arranged the 6th Wireless Evening at MC2, Chalmers. It is an event where Chalmers students can listen to interesting presentations from the Microwave Industry. This year, Joakim Johansson from RUAG Space talked about Antennas for Space Applications, and Christian Lötbäck Patané from Bluetest talked about their reverberation test system. Christian got his master degree in Wireless and Photonics Engineering from Chalmers in 2010, and Joakim initiated the international master’s programme in Hardware for Wireless Communications in 2002, which was one of the first master’s programmes at Chalmers. After the presentations sandwiches and beverages were served in the Canyon, and the students got a possible to talk to the industry representatives.
Apart from the two presentations, Dag Jungenfelt from Microwave Road handed over their scholarship to the students that completed the best master thesis projects in 2015. The three winners were Ewa Simpanen for her master thesis “The impact of GaN-buffer C-doping profile on short-channel effects and ohmic contact formation for millimeter wave III-nitride HEMTs”, Björn Persson for “Analysis and improvement of phase noise performance of a PLL-based RF synthesizer”, and Tomas Rydholm for “Measurement of complex permittivity and permeability through a cavity-perturbation method”.
