Welcome to the website of the Department of Microelectronics at TU Delft.
With a staff of about 30 fte faculty and over 180 fte scientific staff, the Department of Microelectronics combines the expertise of 7 research groups in Electrical Engineering. The complete field of electronics is covered, including signal processing, radar, and telecommunication.
Microelectronics is fundamentally a multi-disciplinary field of research, exploring the physics, materials and chemistry required to make devices work. It is also multidisciplinary with regard to its wide variety of applications, as it plays a crucial role in all fields of innovation, ranging from advanced health care to telecommunications and smart grids. The ever-increasing demand for processing power, sensing capabilities and miniaturisation makes microelectronics a highly innovative research field.
ResearchResearch at the Department of Microelectronics focuses on three areas:
Biomedical devices - from materials to systems, with specific
- diagnostic technology : visualization and tumor detection, high-Tesla MRI, ultrasound arrays and other sensors
- monitoring with low power wireless technology and implantable stimulators, such as cochlear implants and neural stimulators for treatment of tinnitus;
Wireless communication - from devices to systems:
- energy-efficient electronics
- scaling of frequencies from GHz to THz - with the promise of Gb/s wireless networks
- advanced signal processing , such as 'cognitive radio ', use of large antenna arrays
- communication for localization and control
- underwater RF and acoustic communication
- LED communication;
Industrial and environmental multi-sensor sensing - from material
- microwave vision
- distributed sensor systems for environment monitoring
- large sensor arrays and applications in security and radio astronomy
- resource management in distributed sensing systems
The Department provides expertise for each of these research areas, throughout the whole system chain, from the technology layer to the sub -system and component layer and to the system layer, with a direct link to the challenges facing today's society.
EducationThe Department is involved in several MSc tracks: MSc Microelectronics, MSc Telecommunication and Sensing Systems, MSc Signals and Systems.
