Abstract

Dr. Alwan will present an overview on ultra-wideband (UWB) communication systems including ultrawideband arrays, reduced hardware and power efficient communication back-ends, and millimeter-wave technologies for 5G applications.  Since 2009, Dr. Alwan has been involved in a number of projects related to the design, fabrication, and measurement of antennas and RF systems, with emphasis on UWB applications. Specifically, focus of his current research is on developing a new class of transceivers for high data rate secure communications with interference suppression capabilities. Such systems enables instantaneous transmission and reception over a wide frequency bands using UWB arrays. Concurrently, coding techniques are applied to achieve significant hardware, cost, and power reduction. Simultaneous transmit and receive capabilities are also part of his research to achieve multipath and self-interference cancellation. Also, channel coding and code division multiplexing are used for interference mitigation and multi-user detection. Alongside, Dr. Alwan am pursuing intensive research in millimeter wave systems which involves antenna arrays and RF front-ends design, fabrication, and packaging using latest state-of-the-art technologies.
