A silicon photonics based terahertz synthesizer Ghent University
This project aims to develop a compact (chip-scale) source of terahertz waves. These are light
waves with a frequency somewhere between those of cellphones and those used for thermal
imaging. These terahertz waves could be used for telecommunication since they can provide much
higher wireless data rates than the currently used 3G, 4G and WiFi technologies. This increase in
data rate is needed since wireless channels are ...
Characterization and minimization of human RF-EMF exposure in realistic urban environments Ghent University
As telecommunications networks evolve to cope with ever-increasing user demands, so does our
exposure induced by radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMF). Though in most countries
legislation through science-based limits restrict this exposure, our methods to accurately
characterize it in our everyday environments are lacking in efficiency and are based on strict
assumptions. This research proposal aims in the ...

Modelling structured dynamical systems: parametric and non-parametric approaches Vrije Universiteit Brussel
A first class of methodologies relates to support vector machines, originally developed within the machine learning community. A second class is based on classical system identification, which finds ...
Identiﬁcation of block oriented models with parallel structures for nonlinear systems Vrije Universiteit Brussel
We propose a new identification framework for nonlinear systems, based on a parallel-branch block oriented model structure, which ...
Full-wave interconnect modelling for bit rates beyond 25 Gbit/s Ghent University
The research goal is to extend the quasi-TM model, based on the Dirichlet-to-Neumann (DtN) operator, to the full-wave regime. By operating in the frequency domain, the techniques account for frequency-dependent material properties. It is also investigated how different roughness models can be incorporated in the Dtn representation of the conductors.
