Title of PhD project: Close environment effect on antenna-channel characteristics
Description: New wireless systems present strong constraints in terms of miniaturization and of antenna integration into the mobile devices, which often leads to a degradation of the antenna performances. Moreover the electromagnetic interaction with the close surrounding environment and the user (hand grip, proximity to the head, contact with the human body in Body Area Networks, etc) can strongly impact the terminal performance. These effects are systematically neglected in channel modeling and can lead to unfair evaluation of the wireless communication system performance.
The aim of this PhD thesis is to investigate and model the effects of the near field perturbation on the antenna characteristics and on the propagation channel, in order to predict and mitigate their influence on the system performances.
This thesis will be carried out in collaboration with the Comelec department of Telecom ParisTech. The student will share his time between the two laboratories.
