Laboratory for Innovation and Development in Antennas, Radars and Electromagnetics

Welcome to iDARE Laboratory, ECE, IISc!

Welcome to iDARE Laboratory, ECE, IISc!




We aim to resolve problems on antennas, Radars and general electromagnetics (classical & quantum), relevant for the next generation information & communication Technology, health-care, security/defense and energy sector, by carrying out component, algorithm as well as system level research.

Recent Research Highlights

Our works involve analysis and design of antenna-arrays, associated circuitry and frequency selective surfaces (FSS) prototypes, and often transcend to advanced theoretical and computational algorithm development for electromagnetic modelling of these complex systems. We are also interested in developing experimental setups and testbeds essential to measure the real-time performance improvement achieved by our proposed design methodologies.
