MOM Research Departement shares competences of physicists, electronics specialists and electromagneticians. It constitutes an original group of research at the national scale, because ready to take into account interdisciplinary problems, particularly relevant with respect to the needs of applications for telecommunication in a general way, but also in related fields. To control the design of a system since the preliminary knowledge of basic material until the choice of the related technologies and technological processes, to build a smart support, i.e well-suited for the constraints inherent in a particular device and to know how to use it. The research activities of this group must develop scientific and technical knowledge for microwave applications in the field of Information and Communication domains, while bringing new functionalities starting from the supports and materials developed by the group. The efforts are strongly centered on the size and cost reduction and performances required by the new generation of equipment for the communication market. A special attention is also paid towards new concerns related to certain innovating sectors: health, car, networks or security. The teams of the Department follow an increasing hierarchy, namely from the “basic material” until the complete “system”.
One hundred twenty three people are presently working in the MOM Research Department which is headed by Professor Patrick Queffelec: 57 of them are assistant professors or professors, 12 others are engineers or technicians and 41 are PhD students, 14 in post-doctoral positions. All these researchers are distributed in three research teams.
