Agilent Technologies and UC Davis Announce New Millimeter and Sub-Millimeter Wave Research Center

August 2, 2011

From the Agilent Technologies Newsroom:

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and the University of California, Davis, today announced they will establish the Davis Millimeter Wave Research Center. The DMRC will focus on advancing technology in millimeter wave and THz systems for radar, imaging systems, sensors, communications and integrated passive devices found in electromagnetic metamaterials and antennae.

The DMRC is vertically integrated, with research involving devices, integrated circuits, packaging, metamaterials and defected ground integrated passives, imaging systems, THz vacuum electronics, THz micro-machined devices, nonlinear modeling, nanomaterials and wireless implantable devices.

These devices and systems are found in commercial products such as medical imaging systems, security scanners, gigabit wireless communications devices and sensors, as well as defense usages such as radar and active denial systems.


DMRC Review Meeting
August 27, 2010

We are pleased to announce the inauguration of the Davis Millimeter Wave Research Center which will be formally celebrated at our first review meeting scheduled on Thursday, October 21st, 2010. The DMRC is broadly focused on fostering millimeter wave and THz technology for wireless communications, radar, sensing, and imaging systems. The activities in the DMRC range from devices, integrated circuits, components and packaging, sub-systems to system implementation.

The opening address and welcome will be given by our Chancellor, Linda Katehi, who is also a member of the Center. As part of the review, we are planning to have two 45-minute keynote presentations from industry and government executives to obtain a perspective on trends and opportunities. We will also have student and staff presentations, lab tours and an industry advisory board meeting. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
