This platform is useful for laboratory validation of hardware research in wideband millimetre wave (mmW) and sub-THz technology. It enables probed and free-space characterisation of emerging hardware for 6G wireless, quantum computing, and sub-THz radar. The platform provides a route towards next generation efficient sub-THz hardware, providing equipment that can be used beyond the low-end mmW range. A new testbed with high-end modular equipment unlocks laboratory validation of circuit, antenna, device, and materials innovations. This platform establishes infrastructure nodes for 6G, sub-THz radar, and research beyond.

Research Platform for 6G, Sub-THz Radar, and Beyond
By joint support from ELLIIT Infrastructure Initiative 2021 and LTH Infrastructure 2023, the foundation for a “Sub-THz Research Platform” at the Department of Electrical and Information Technology (EIT), Lund University, has begun to be built. They have invested in top-of-the-line electrical measurement instrumentation for high frequency and high speed/wideband characterisation, which allows for users to address hardware characterisation for research towards 6G, sub-THz radar, and applications beyond.
You are welcome to attend information seminars about the new equipment! An application engineer and/ or sales representative from the respective supplier will present the delivered equipment, typical applications, and available update paths for special use cases, plus Q & A.
