Facilities Available

Microwave Electronics Research Laboratory (MERL)

The Microwave Electronics Research Laboratory (MERL) is located in the Department of Applied Electronics, Gulbarga University, Gulbarga. The laboratory is used for teaching and research in Microwave Electronics.


A well established research and training Laboratory in Microwave Electronics and Antennas has been set up by Microwave group led by Prof. P.V. Hunagund in Department of Applied Electronics, Gulbarga University, Gulbarga under the Major Research Project sponsored from Department of Science & Technology (DST), New-Delhi. Moreover Dept. has been sanctioned FIST program from DST, New-Delhi .

Now the Laboratory is equipped with Vector Network Analyzer , X & Ku band microwave benches with most modern and sophisticated equipment like PC based Antenna radiation pattern measurement system. [STIC make, Cochin]. The Laboratory is having a low cost Microwave Anechoic Chamber for simulating free space environment for antenna and RCS measurements.

The department has procured user-friendly software for quick and precise antenna measurement and analysis. The major areas of research now being pursued are Slotted waveguide antennas, Corner Reflectors, Microstrip Antennas, Parabolic reflectors with dipole feed, Waveguide fed helical antennas, Dielectric leaky wave antennas, lens antennas, integrated circuits and antennas, microwave horn antennas, material characterization at microwave region and development of microprocessor and micro controller based antenna measurement systems etc.
