We are a leading research group in the area of electromagnetism. Our scope covers antenna design and measurement, computational electromagnetism, EMC, radar, millimiter waves applications, electro-optics and quantum information technology.

TERASENSE

The main objectives of the Project:

• Define and develop three specific projects to design and experimentally test three prototype instruments in the fields of security, environmental monitoring and personal health, capable of providing new functional fused information based on the sensing in terahertz spectrum.

  -A 0.1THz band (94GHz) Short-Range Real Time 2D Imaging Camera for Security Applications (WP04)
  -A 0.3THz band (300GHz) High Resolution Remote Sensing Imaging Radar for Environmental Monitoring (WP05)
  -A 0.5-3THz Near-Field System for Biostructures Sensing and Imaging (WP06)

• To define and built a terahertz networked laboratory infrastructure at national level able to support the development of the different devices and subsystems. Specifically it is proposed a set of three technological laboratories at national level:

  -THz Numerical Modeling  Joint Laboratory (WP01)
  -THz Device Measurement Joint Laboratory (WP02)
  -THz Radiation Measurement Joint laboratory (WP03)

• To promote the establishment of a joint international advanced graduated program on the field of electromagnetic sensing able to attract bright worldwide students and scholars able to accelerate the advancement of the field , and specifically fostering a multidisciplinary approach to educate a new generation of researchers performing in the frontiers of electromagnetism, nanoscience and biology. (WP06)

  -A joint PhD School and Scholarship program

• To structure and coordinate a joint public-private research effort at national level to improve a joint presence and projection at international levels, particularly at European level, to optimize the benefits of the advancement.

  -To establish an academic-industry TeraSense  joint national initiative
