The research activities of the RCL in this area include:

  1. modeling of anisotropic substrates for microstrip structures
  2. filter design
  3. microstrip transmission lines
  4. high-frequency remote-sensing.

The RCL has participated in several national and EU-funded programs in this field in collaboration with other research groups. Among the projects which have been carried out were (i) the study and applications of microstrips in the development of MICís and, (ii) the design of filters and diplexers of an antenna system.
