Naghibzadeh, S. (author)
Fundamental scientific questions such as how the first stars were formed or how the universe came into existence and evolved to its present state drive us to observe weak radio signals impinging on the earth from the early days of the universe. During the last century, radio astronomy has been vastly advancing. Important discoveries on the...

The search for the answer to one of the most fundamental scientific questions, “How was the universe formed?”, requires us to study very weak radio signals from the early universe. In the last eighty years, radio astronomers have been able to use radio frequency observations for significant discoveries such as quasars, super massive Black Holes...

A future home area network (HAN) is envisaged to consist of a large number of devices that support various applications such as smart grid, security and safety systems, voice call, and video streaming. Most of these home devices are communicating based on various wireless networking technologies such as WiFi, ZigBee and Bluetooth, which...

Chepuri, S.P. (author)
In today's society, we are flooded with massive volumes of data in the order of a billion gigabytes on a daily basis from pervasive sensors. It is becoming increasingly challenging to locally store and transport the acquired data to a central location for signal/data processing (i.e., for inference). To alleviate these problems, it is evident...

After the development in the past 120 years since the invention of the first radio transmission, worldwide wireless communication systems are nowadays part of daily life. Behind the shining and astonishing achievement of modern communication systems, the exhaustion of existing frequency spectrum resources has been a concern. In higher frequency...

Kumar, S.S. (author)
The sustained increase in computational performance demanded by next-generation applications drives the increasing core counts of modern multiprocessor systems. However, in the dark silicon era, the performance levels and integration density of such systems is limited by thermal constraints of their physical package. These constraints are more...

The great demand for location-aware wireless sensor networks (WSNs) motivates the research in this thesis. The unique characteristics of WSNs impose numerous challenges on localization and communication. In this thesis, we handle some key challenges and provide affordable solutions. Impulse radio ultra wideband (IR-UWB) is employed as the...

Simon, C. (author)
The number of deployed wireless communication systems has grown rapidly in the last years. Their popularity is mainly due to the effortlessness with which the systems can be deployed. Further, the new generation of wireless systems, e.g., 802.11n, starts to close the performance gap to their wired counterparts. The performance of these systems...

Venkateswaran, V. (author)
One of the major drawbacks towards the realization of MIMO and multi-sensor wireless communication systems is that multiple antennas at the receiver each have their own separate radio frequency (RF) front ends and analog to digital converter (ADC) units, leading to increased circuit size and power consumption. Improvements in RF and ADC...

Wijnholds, S.J. (author)
The radio astronomical community is currently developing and building several new radio telescopes based on phased array technology. These telescopes provide a large field-of-view, that may in principle span a full hemisphere. This makes calibration and imaging very challenging tasks due to the complex source structures and direction dependent...

Fang, K. (author)
Broadband wireless communication systems require high transmission rates, where the bandwidth of the transmitted signal is larger than the channel coherence bandwidth. This gives rise to time dispersion of the transmitted symbols or frequency-selectivity with different frequency components exhibiting different gains. The time dispersion of the...

Van der Tol, S. (author)
Radio astronomical observations at low frequencies (< 250 MHz), can be severely distorted by fluctuations in electron density in the ionosphere. The free electrons cause a phase change of electromagnetic waves traveling through the ionosphere. This effect increases for lower frequencies. For this reason observations at low frequencies have been...

The next generation of radio telescopes is expected to be one to two orders of magnitude more sensitive than the current generation. Examples of such new telescopes are the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), currently under construction in the Netherlands, and the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), currently in a concept study phase. Another trend is that...
