The National NWO project FREEPOWER (Free-space electromagnetic modulation with focal-plane arrays using non-linear power amplifiers) offers 3 prestigious PhD student positions at Eindhoven University of Technology in the area of antenna systems and optical networks, starting in the summer of 2019 until mid-2023. The FREEPOWER consortium includes leading industries and institutes in the domain of wireless infrastructure. FREEPOWER will provide the PhD students with a comprehensive set of theoretical and practical skills relevant for innovation and long-term employability in a rapidly growing sector. The project is performed in a collaborative effort among two research groups and leverages on the current activities in the H2020 ITNs projects SILIKA, 5G STEP FWD and 5G PPP projects blueSPACE and 5G PHOS all involving strong collaboration with industry.

The following scientific challenges will be addressed in the FREEPOWER project:
PhD position 1: Introduction of a new concept, LINCA, which is an extension of the LINC concept, to create linear phased-array transmitters to enable mm-wave front-haul links using power-efficient non-linear power amplifiers applied on array level. Our 'out-spacing' concept takes the traditional circuit-level out-spacing concepts towards the electromagnetic domain.
PhD position 2: Implementation of the LINCA phased-array feed in a wide-scanning focalplane array (FPA). The active phased array will be a highly integrated solution containing the amplifiers as well as optical-to-electrical converters to directly interface to an optical fiber, a fibre ribbon or multicore optical fiber feeders.
PhD position 3: The front-end complexity of the front-haul antenna system is further reduced by using an analog radio-over-fiber (ARoF) connection between the central office, the distributed unit and the remote radio units. In this way, the main part of the analog and digital electronics as well as control is located at the central.

This project will result in a technology demonstrator consisting of a FPA which is illuminated by a LINCA cluster with active array elements to provide an E-band front-haul antenna system that can generate an effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) of at least 65 dBm. The front-haul antenna is fed from a remote central office using analog radio-over-fiber.

Applicants should have, or expect to receive, a Master of Science degree or equivalent in a relevant electrical engineering or applied physics discipline. In addition to the formal qualifications, selection is also based on the performance of the candidates in other works (e.g. thesis and advanced level courses), as well as through interviews and assignments. Besides good subject knowledge, emphasis will be on creative thinking, motivation, ability to cooperate, initiative to work independently and personal suitability for research training. Previous experience in the area of antenna systems, optical networks and co-design antenna/electronics/photonics as well as proficiency in using scientific and engineering software packages such as Matlab, CST, ADS etc. are meritorious.
