    Research

    Research

    Catherine Dehollain is responsible for research projects at Swiss level (SNF projects, CTI projects) as well as at European level (FP7 projects, Marie-Curie projects). Her activities are focused on wireless data communications of sensor nodes for telecoms applications and biomedical applications. She is also interested by remote powering of sensor nodes in order to avoid the use of a micro-battery or to use a rechargeable micro-battery. Moreover, she is interested by the domain of electrical filters as well as broadband impedance matching circuits. Since 15 years, she has a large activity dedicated to super-regenerative receivers as well as RFID circuits.
