Technische Universität Dresden is one of the top universities in Europe and has been one of eleven Universities of Excellence in Germany since 2012. With the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) funded “6G Life” research hub, Cluster of Excellence CeTI - Center for Tactile Internet, the 5G Lab Germany and numerous other lighthouse projects, TU Dresden has proven itself a pioneer in the research and development of the mobile communications of the future.
The Chair of Radio Frequency (Prof. Plettemeier) has built expertise in the field of antenna development (e.g. DFG SPP Wireless 100 Gb/s, co-op with IBM), in the field of radar system development and signal processing (e.g. cooperation with ESA) and in the area of body-area networks (e.g. EU project Wibec). The expertise and core competencies offered by our team include, but are not limited to:
- Antenna systems up to the THz range: Adaptive antenna systems using hybrid beamforming; intelligent algorithms for selecting the active antenna elements depending on the requirements of the communication network.
- Joint Communication and Sensing systems: Waveforms and RF in terms of the requirement in the spatial resolution (localization) and latency and data rate requirements (communication) into account; algorithms for signal processing using machine learning.
- Body Area Networks: High reliable and high-speed energy-efficient wireless body area network (BAN) system; sensor and antenna integrated biomedical IoT devices; different connectivity network structures in terms of the communication quality, e.g., blocking probability.
- Receivers for quantum communication: Development of heterodyne receivers (rather than homodyne receivers) to enable higher transmission ranges in quantum communication.
