Prof. G. Rick Branner

Principal Investigator

Research Activities:
Professor Branner performs research in the general area of the design and analysis of Microwave and RF devices, circuits, systems and antennas. His work focuses on realizations found in modern military and commercial systems. This research is motivated by his over 25 years of industrial experience combined with strong theoretical foundations.

He is currently conducting research in active nonlinear Microwave devices, Wide Bandgap Microwave transistors and circuits, passive Microwave devices(stripline and microstripline realizations) and conformal Ku band antenna arrays.
