DMLab's work on SSDL circulator is published in Scientific Report

The researchers from DMLab have proposed a time switching strategy known as the Sequentially-Switched Delay Line (SSDL) to achieve non-reciprocity without the use of magnetic material. The SSDL circulators offer small physical size and compatibility with IC technology at the price of limited noise and power performance. The additional advantage of the SSDL circulator is its potentially unlimited bandwidth even with a form factor that is suitable for on-chip integration. This work is recently published in Scientific Report. DMLab recently received a $2.2 million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency’s Microsystems Technology Office to develop the device for use on microchips.

The detail of the project can be found on UCLA Newsroom:


This new design was also reported on Popular Mechanics:

Associate professor Yuanxun "Ethan" Wang is leading research to to ‘bend rules of classical physics’

An interdisciplinary team of researchers from the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have been awarded a four-year, $ 2-million grant by the National Science Foundation to “bend the rules of classical physics” in developing a new class of wireless communication and sensor technologies that could be significantly smaller and more efficient than current state-of-the-art technologies. The research is being led by Yuanxun “Ethan” Wang, associate professor of electrical engineering, with co-principal investigators Greg Carman and Christopher Lynch, both professors of mechanical and aerospace engineering. The detail of the project can be found on UCLA Newsroom:

DML's PhD student Zhi(Jackie) Yao has been awarded the 2015 Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship, together with Sidhant Tiwari, a PhD student from Sensors and Technology Lab, advised by Professor Rob Candler. The awarded proposal, entitled "Bulk Acoustic Wave Resonators for Antenna Applications through Multiferroic Coupling," is for their joint effort towards realizing a multiferroic antenna mediated by bulk acoustic wave resonance. Out of 146 submitted proposals, 35 finalist teams were chosen to present their proposal to Qualcomm in San Diego. From the finalists, 8 winning teams were selected and awarded $100,000 for their projects. The detail of the award can be found in:




Feburary 25, 2015

DML's PhD student Shihan Qin has been awarded an IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Graduate Fellowship for 2015. Each year MTT-S selects up to ten graduate students for this award to recognize and provide financial assistance to graduate students who show promise and interest in pursuing a graduate degree in microwave engineering. The detail of the fellowship can be found in: http://mtt.org/students-and-faculty.html#grad.

November 21, 2014

DML's PhD student Zhi(Jackie) Yao gives a seminar presentation in the TANMS weekly seminar session, on the topic "Bulk Acoustic Wave Mediated Nultiferroic Antennas: Architecture and Performance Bound". Details are posted on TANMS official website.
