This week, the speakers for the IMG Seminar are:
- Camilo Vélez (Dr. Arnold's group) on Integrating microfabricated magnetic materials in 5G telecommunication systems
- Cary Kuliasha (Dr. Judy's group)
Integrating microfabricated magnetic materials in 5G telecommunication systems. The microfabrication of ferrite structures on semiconductor substrates for mm-wave applications is an imminent necessity to the development of components in the 5th generation of telecommunication systems (5G). A team from IMG is conducting research in this area under the DARPA/MTO program called: Magnetic Miniaturized and Monolithically Integrated Components (M3IC). We have implemented fabrication and characterization techniques that required our group’s combined know-how on MEMS, microfabrication, magnetics, nanoparticles, transmission lines and RF. During this seminar we will present techniques to pattern >100 µm thick barium hexaferrite (BaFe12O19) films on semiconductor substrates, revealing material’s peak signal absorption associated with ferromagnetic resonances at 45.9 GHz.
