Reconfigurable RF Devices & Systems Laboratory (ReDS)

Our group focuses on advancing the state-of-the-art on radio-frequency (RF) reconfigurable devices and systems. Specifically, our projects span reconfigurable filters, switches, phase shifters, antennas, and antenna arrays. We work on a wide frequency spectrum from sub-GHz to millimeter-Wave frequencies and beyond. We utilize novel micro-fabrication techniques and additive manufacturing processes for realizing our prototypes. In addition, we develop advanced additive manufacturing techniques for antennas and antennas arrays. We are part of the Center for Wireless and Informations Systems (WAMI) and we partner with the Nanotechnology Research and Education Center (NREC) at the University of South Florida.


Principal Investigator

The ReDS Lab is part of the Center for Wireless and Microwave Information Systems. The group is directed by Dr. Gokhan Mumcu.

Dr. Mumcu ranked first on the national university entrance exam taken annually by over 1.5 million Turkish students (1999). He was the recipient of the 1999 International Education Fellowship of the Turkish Ministry of Education. He was the recipient of a best paper award at 2008 URSI National Radio Science Meeting, and the 2008 outstanding dissertation award at the Ohio State University, ElectroScience Laboratory. Dr. Mumcu obtained his Doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering from The Ohio State University in October 2008. He joined the University of South Florida in 2009, and became an Associate Professor in 2015. He has adviced 6 PhD students and 3 Master students in Electrical Engineering since he joined Universty of South Florida in 2009.

His main research interests are in:

  1. New concepts (e.g. metamaterials, volumetric 3D reactive loading, polymers) for designing conformal, miniature and multifunctional antennas.
  2. Compact arrays of miniature antennas for anti-jam GPS, GNSS, and THz imaging applications.
  3. Miniature RF filters utilizing electrically small resonators.
  4. Reconfigurable antennas and RF circuits.
  5. Microfluidics based techniques for implementing cost-effective beam-scanning mm-wave antenna arrays, high power handling frequency tunable RF filters, mm-wave switches and phase shifters.
  6. Additive manufacturing of structural antennas and antenna arrays.
