... Marina Jordão, a PhD student from the University of Aveiro, has won the “Silver Award of ARFTG Roger Pollard Student Fellowship in Microwave Measurement”, for her work entitled “Over-The-Air Characterization of 5G MIMO Systems”. The award was announced in the “94th ARFTG Microwave Measurement Symposium RF to Millimeter-Wave Measurement Techniques for 5G and Beyond”, held in San Antonio, USA, on January 28.

Marina is developing her PhD at IT in Aveiro, under the supervision of Nuno Borges de Carvalho, Arnaldo de Oliveira (both from IT/UA) and Rafael Caldeirinha (IT/Polytechnic Institute of Leiria).

With the arrival of the 5G, the next generation of telecommunications, the objective of Marina´ s PhD work is to contribute with techniques and methods to improve the design, characterization of MIMO antennas and devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) to be used in 5G.

The Automatic Radio Frequency Techniques Group (ARFTG) is an organization interested in the areas of test and measurement of radio frequency signals. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize and fund promising research, by PhD students who show an interest in developing work that improves radio frequency signal measurements. The scholarship is named in memory of Roger Pollard, in honor of his work in the field of radio frequency signal measurements and education.
