The increasing number of frequency bands having to be dealt with in mobile phone systems require a huge number of band pass filters in such systems. In this context, the capability to provide frequency tunable resonators and filters is seen as a key enabling element in future wireless transmission systems.
CEA-LETI has been working for more than 10 years on the development of resonators and filters exploiting the propagation of guided elastic waves in piezoelectric thin films. It has also proposed several concepts for frequency agile resonators and filters.
The purpose of this post-doc will be to further develop these ideas and to apply them to the design of demonstrators matching realistic specifications. In collaboration with the other member of the project team, more focused on fabrication in clean rooms, the candidate will propose innovative structures demonstrating frequency tuning of reconfigurability, and will take in charge their electrical characterization.
