The Kollberg Laboratory, an open research infrastructure for microwave and terahertz characterization, is a unique laboratory for the development of technology in the hard to reach terahertz frequency range, i.e. frequencies of the order of a trillion cycles per second as well as for advanced communication and sensing systems in the microwave range.
The infrastructure enables research with applications in space exploration, future wireless communications and radar sensors, for example in autonomous vehicles.
The vision is to become one of the three most complete and advanced measurement laboratories for high frequencies, open to users from all around the world.
A new generation of instruments allows measurements at frequencies up to and above one terahertz. The equipment is adapted to suit multiple research areas: materials, components, circuits, systems, and antennas for high frequencies.
The Kollberg laboratory was formed in the spring of 2015. The laboratory is linked to undergraduate education at Chalmers and will educate and train new users continuously in measurement technology.
