Keysight Technologies have announced the opening of a new millimetre-wave research lab in collaboration with Queen’s University Belfast.

Executing a market driven, innovative approach, ECIT works closely with world-leading companies and entrepreneurs to establish the lab’s research objectives – focusing on the future of a digital society.

Keysight equipment (including the N5247A PNA-X Non-Linear Vector Network Analyzer) is available in the facility, which is located at the Centre for Wireless Innovation at the University’s Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT).

“Keysight has always been committed to working with and supporting academic institutions," said Mark Pierpoint, president, Ixia Solutions Group at Keysight Technologies, "not only to help develop the next generation of engineers, but to accelerate research, innovation and technological breakthroughs. We do this by helping to equip teaching and research laboratories with leading-edge instrumentation. Queen’s University Belfast has a world-class reputation for its Global Research Institutes and it is a privilege to support this new millimetre-wave research lab."

Welcoming the announcement of the new lab, which can accommodate 60 researchers, students and engineers, Professor Vincent Fusco, chief technical officer of ECIT and leader of microwave research at Queen’s University Belfast for over thirty years, commented: “This partnership with Queen’s University Belfast and Keysight gives us unprecedented measurement and instrumentation capabilities that will transform our microwave and millimetre-wave laboratories to advance our world leading research in this area.”

Dr. Dmitry Zelenchuk, senior research engineer, ECIT, will be joined by experts from Keysight for a Millimeter-Wave Measurement Insights seminar on 24th May. Dr. Zelenchuk’s presentation will focus on case studies of millimetre-wave components and antennas measurement and provide insights into the millimetre-wave measurements in recent academic research.
