Microwave Lab

A SCIENTIFIC FIRST!!! Evan Pease is measuring the even and odd order distortion signals from a superconducting microwave filter. He is using three input signals with a method being developed exclusively in the Hope College Microwave Lab called 3-tone intermodulationdistortion. This ground breaking research will help to establish the limits of superconductivity in microwave electronics […]

Kyle McLellan works on microstrip structures in microwave lab

Kyle McLellan was caught designing some rather unique microstrip structures using method-of-moments IE3D from Zeland Software. This is one of the numerous professional tools used in the Microwave Lab to ensure that our cutting edge R&D is competitive at the international level.

The Microwave Lab

Cameron Recknagel and Evan Pease are assembling a vacuum chamber for an experiment in plasma generation in the microwave lab. The gas in the chamber is subjected to a high microwave field which causes an avalanche of ionization events. Cameron will analyze the optical emission spectra to understand the role of collision frequency on the […]
