Kamal Sarabandi: Research Interests
Professor Sarabandi's research focus encompasses a wide range of
topics in the area of applied electromagnetics. His research
activities in this area cover a span of 25 years and can be grouped
into the following general areas:
- Microwave and millimeter-wave radar remote sensing including
forward and inverse model development, controlled measurements, and
system design and fabrication. He has been principal investigator on many NASA
projects related to remote sensing of terrestrial targets such as
vegetation, soil moisture, and snow using synthetic aperture radars
(SAR) including polarimetric and interferometric systems. He has also
applied the same techniques to detection and identification of point
targets in clutter environment.
- Antenna miniaturization and reconfigurable antennas for wireless
applications. This includes the application of novel topologies
and architecture and use of novel materials (metamaterials) and
- Wireless channel characterization for performance assessment
of wireless systems. Research efforts in this area encompass
simulation tolls using analytical and numerical methods as well as
measurements systems and scaled models.
- Millimeter-wave and submillimeter-wave subsystems and components
with applications to radar imaging (collision avoidance, autonomous
vehicle control, security, etc.). Novel fabrication technology based
on ceramic sterolithography.
