Ph. D. Program and Area of Focus

Research Area: Development of low cost materials for EM absorber

Interference prevention schemes for large structures and buildings housing electrical equipment, sensitive telecommunication equipment, safety vaults, reactors and internet servers are also under investigation. Developing low cost materials from industrial by products, agricultural waste products can lead to innovative EM absorber designs, in addition to promoting sustainable technologies.

Research Area: Design of low power ESD protected RF circuits working at millimeter wave frequencies using CMOS device

To design a low power, ESD protected RF circuits working at millimeter wave frequencies using CMOS device. In this, low noise amplifers and differential amplifers are chosen whcin form the primary icons for the design of OP AMPs.

Research Area: Design of compact printed MIMO antenna systems

The design of MIMO antennas is a challenging area are the designer needs to take care of several issues that were not there when he/she were designing single or multiple antenna systems that are covering different bands. Such issues deal with the mutual coupling, the field correlation among others. In addition, designing multiple antenna systems requires introducing more metrics than those of a single antenna system.

Research Area: Design and realization of a digital beamforming module for Radar

Work on adaptive antenna arrays considering parameters like beamforming and direction of arrival. In this aspect machine learning algorithms like support vector machines and neural networks need to be investigated for radar applications .With the help of an adaptive array and the smart signal processing algorithms good directivity and clutter rejection are to be achieved with less complex circuitry.

Research Area: Performance analysis of MIMO based communication system on minimized multipath environment

The proposed project work focuses mainly towards MIMO based wireless systems under reduced multipath environment, in order to make it suitable for Satellite to multiuser communication. Spatial multiplexing and diversity maximization schemes can be deployed to achieve better spectral efficiencies and bit error rates (BER) when compared to the classical single satellite single receive station systems. Hence, the application of multiple input multiple output techniques to satellite communication systems appear to be appropriate in order to achieve increased spectral and bandwidth efficiency.

The lab is equipped with Ettus Research Universal Software Radio Peripheral Networked Series (USRP-N210) with wide range of RF daughter boards from 0 to 6 GHz and Xilinx Spartan 3A-DSP Motherboard. USRP is a fully reconfigurable wireless transceiver which automatically adapts its communication parameters to network and user demands. All of the high-speed general purpose operations like digital up and down conversion, decimation and interpolation are done on the FPGA. The basic design philosophy behind the USRP has been to do all of the waveform-specific processing, like modulation and demodulation, filtering on the host CPU using GNU Radio. GNU Radio is development toolkit that provides communication and signal processing blocks to implement software radios. In addition to this, EM device design and analysis tool Ansys HFSS is available.

MICROWAVE AND ANTENNA LABORATORY

The Radio Frequency and Microwave laboratory was established in the year 1996. The lab is equipped with full-fledged X band wave guide bench with Klystron and Gunn based microwave sources and Scalar power meter. A RF signal generator in the range 34MHz- 4.4GHz and receiver in the range 34MHz- 8.8GHz is presently added. Together with the waveguide peripherals including directional couplers, magic tees, circulators, tuners provide an excellent set up for the students to get a real time feel of wave propagation concepts and its applications. A complete VHF antenna measurement system was commissioned in the year 2004 with a variety of antennas including dipoles, monopoles, yagi uda and loop structures. The lab has five personal computer systems to provide exposure to the students in the area of electromagnetic simulation employing software. Apart from catering to  the regular academic laboratory requirements, students are exposed to innovative experiments involving radar cross section and microwave material characterization. Over the last three years, the lab has undertaken rigorous research and development activities in the area of electromagnetic characterization of fly ash and development of antennas on cylindrical substrates. This has resulted in a good number of publications in reputed international journals including Electromagnetics (Taylor and Francis), Applied Mechanics and Materials, and international conferences like INCEMIC. Over the next three years, it is proposed to have a fully developed microwave instrumentation for exploring the possibility of undertaking external funded projects and consultancy activities in the area of electromagnetic material characterization and developing EM based Non destructive Testing techniques for Agricultural and Food products.

MICROPROCESSOR LABORATORY

MICROWAVE AND ANTENNA LABORATORY

The Radio Frequency and Microwave laboratory was established in the year 1996. The lab is equipped with full-fledged X band wave guide bench with Klystron and Gunn based microwave sources and Scalar power meter. A RF signal generator in the range 34MHz- 4.4GHz and receiver in the range 34MHz- 8.8GHz is presently added. Together with the waveguide peripherals including directional couplers, magic tees, circulators, tuners provide an excellent set up for the students to get a real time feel of wave propagation concepts and its applications. A complete VHF antenna measurement system was commissioned in the year 2004 with a variety of antennas including dipoles, monopoles, yagi uda and loop structures. The lab has five personal computer systems to provide exposure to the students in the area of electromagnetic simulation employing software. Apart from catering to  the regular academic laboratory requirements, students are exposed to innovative experiments involving radar cross section and microwave material characterization. Over the last three years, the lab has undertaken rigorous research and development activities in the area of electromagnetic characterization of fly ash and development of antennas on cylindrical substrates. This has resulted in a good number of publications in reputed international journals including Electromagnetics (Taylor and Francis), Applied Mechanics and Materials, and international conferences like INCEMIC. Over the next three years, it is proposed to have a fully developed microwave instrumentation for exploring the possibility of undertaking external funded projects and consultancy activities in the area of electromagnetic material characterization and developing EM based Non destructive Testing techniques for Agricultural and Food products.

    Gokulashtami Celebrations

    “Hare krishna hare krishna, krishna krishna hare hare………….
    Radhe krishna radhe krishna radha govinda……”

    With Sri Krishna bhajans and slogans, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham's Coimbatore Campus celebrates Gokulashtami every Year. Gokulashtami is also known as Sri Krishna Jayanthi, the birthday of Lord Sri Krishna. 

    The festivity began in the early morning with Nagara Sankeerthanam where students and faculty took an idol of the Krishna across the campus singing His glory. Around 9.00 A.M. the Procession of richly decorated Floats from each department of the campus, screening various messages and sights from Krishna Avatar, began. Little girls and boys dressed as Krishnas and Gopikas walked beside the floats and a group of students singing and dancing accompanied them. In the afternoon, Uriyadi and Vadamvali (tug of war) rituals were performed. The students also participated in various competitions based on the theme of Sri Krishna such as dance, music, skit, quiz, elocution, essaywriting, painting and Rangoli.
