Systems Research and Technology Development Labs

This R&D lab is divided into 3 research laboratories

1. Central Research Facility on Advanced Electrical Characterization (CRF-AEC) Lab
This lab houses some of the high-end electrical characterization equipment meant for wafer and chip level characterization of electronic devices and circuits down to cryogenic temperatures as well as mm-wave frequencies up to 67 GHz. The lab also has facility to perform low frequency noise measurements, DC measurements, and a solar simulator.

UltraFast Optical Communications and High-performance Integrated Photonics Lab (UFO-CHIP)
In this laboratory, we work in the domain of optics and photonics for enhancing communication networks. We process high-frequency and high-bandwidth RF signals using photonic techniques such as microwave photonics, nonlinear optics and integrated optics to increase the flexibility and functionality of traditional wireless systems. Furthermore, we are developing integrated laser sources for quantum communications and telecommunication applications and are developing a Terabits-per-second coherent optical communication system.

5G & Beyond Wireless Communication Lab The lab is designed to house the core equipment of the proposed communication systems test and R&D bench at IIT Delhi as an Academia-Industry Collaborative R&D exercise towards faculty research translation, industry-grade systems/product development, and technology incubation. One of the key goals is to enable ourselves to come up with the technology development capabilities for the Indian Strategic Needs in the area of or involving Communication Engineering.

6G & Beyond Wireless Communication Lab

The “6G and Beyond Wireless Communication lab” is focused on developing wireless communication technologies for 6G (e.g., modulation waveforms for 6G high mobility scenarios, joint communication and radar sensing). Emphasis will be on development of algorithms for 6G technologies. Government and industry funding will be sought to setup an experimental facility for verification of 6G algorithms and technologies. Ph.D/M.Tech students will also get trained in the design of 6G communication systems.
