Antennas and Propagation Research Laboratory
Antennas and Propagation Research Laboratory (BOUNtenna) was founded and is led by Assistant Professor Sema Dumanlı Oktar. It concentrates on the design of reconfigurable antenna elements and arrays for mobile devices of limited size. The focus areas of application include wearable and implantable smart devices within the Body Area Networks (BANs), Internet of Health Things (IoHT), Internet of Things (IoT), MIMO communications. Capabilities in the laboratory include but are not limited to electromagnetic field simulation, antenna/PCB prototyping, mechanical modeling, physical body phantom development (head, knee, hip, etc.), S-parameter measurements. In addition, BOUNtenna has a Faraday Cage with 80 dB shielding between 1-18 GHz.
