June Technical Webinar: Energy-Efficient Broadband Silicon-Based Terahertz Circuits for Emerging Wireless Applications

7:00 AM ET
Webinar - Online

Abstract: With the evolution of wireless communication and sensing, the spectrum resource above 100GHz has attracted much attention and extensive research. Owing to the advantages on integration level and low cost, and increasing cut-off frequency, silicon-based technology has strong potential in terahertz applications. However, due to the low voltage and high substrate loss, the performance of silicon-based circuits is limited. In this talk, we will address these challenges and overview the research progress in this field, and introduce our recent works including energy-efficient power amplifier and front-end circuits. 

Biography: Dr. Wenhua Chen received the B.S. degree in microwave engineering from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, China, in 2001, and the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from Tsinghua University, China, in 2006. From 2010 to 2011, he was a Post-Doctoral Fellow with the iRadio Laboratory, University of Calgary, Canada. He is currently a Full Professor with the Department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University. He has authored or co-authored over 200 journal articles and conference articles, including 3 ISSCC and 4 JSSC papers. His main research interests include energy-efficient power amplifier (PA) and linearization, and millimeter-wave integrated circuits. Dr. Chen was a recipient of the 2022 Distinguished Youth Science Foundation of NSFC, the 2015 Outstanding Youth Science Foundation of NSFC, the 2014 URSI Young Scientist Award, and the Student Paper Awards of several international conferences. He is currently an Associate Editor of IEEE MWCL and an Editorial Member of Engineering, and he was an Associate Editor of the IEEE T-MTT.
