    Design and Implementation of a Novel Wireless Receiver Chain Using Metamaterial Quad Band Devices

    §  Created a new design methodology for the fabrication of quad-band microwave metamaterial devices. This methodology was then used to design and fabricate a quad-band receiver chain consisting of a coupler, mixer and antenna, to demonstrate that metamaterial devices can be used for multiband systems with significant hardware and cost savings.

    Super-resolution microwave imaging with metamaterial lenses

    §  Fabricated the first metamaterials ever built in Cyprus using state of the art PCB fabrication facilities and designed, prototyped and tested a microwave quad-band power divider using Negative-Refractive-Index Transmission-Line unit cells.
