Abstract

During the lecture recent research and development efforts in mm-wave automotive radar RF front-ends and activities at HRL related to GaN MMIC and their use in future mm-wave systems will be presented. The talk will conclude with a presentation of HRL and an introduction to its research and development activities.

Biography

Dr. Alexandros Margomenos is a Research Staff Engineer at HRL Laboratories. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan at 2003 and his M.B.A. degree from the University of Michigan at 2009. At HRL, Dr. Margomenos is involved in the development of GaN MMIC components and GaN-based RF front-ends. Prior to joining HRL, he was a Senior Scientist at Toyota, where he was involved in developing a 77 GHz phased array automotive FMCW radar. Prior to that, he was a Senior Scientist at EMAG Technologies, where he was responsible for developing 3D integrated wafer-scale phased array RF front-ends, mm-wave Si micromachined components and RF MEMS circuits. He has been PI and co-PI on multiple government and industry funded programs.
