Accurate knowledge of wireless systems is crucial for reliable communications, high data rates and safety. Using the reverberation chamber, I investigate methods to measure these devices up to sub-THz frequencies.

Sander Bronckers received the M.Sc. degree (cum laude) in electrical engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), The Netherlands, in 2015. In 2018, he was a visiting researcher at NIST (Boulder, Colorado) on antenna measurements in reverberation chambers. He obtained the Ph.D. degree (cum laude) in electrical engineering in 2019, within the electromagnetics group at TU/e, on design and measurement techniques for next-generation integrated antennas. He is currently an assistant professor on Metrology for Antennas and Wireless Systems at TU/e.
Sander’s main research interest is in metrology for antennas and antenna systems. He mainly works on reverberation chambers, up to mmW and sub-THz frequencies, and developing ‘hybrid’ chamber concepts to provide realistic channels. He is also active in channel sounding, which provides inputs for the hybrid chambers. Furthermore he studies scenarios that require special measurement setups (e.g. in-body antennas, in-situ material characterization, etc.).
Sander co-founded TU/e spin-off AntenneX, which specializes in antenna metrology, in 2021. Furthermore, he chairs the ultra-high-data-rate track in TU/e’s Center for Wireless Technology (CWTe). He was a recipient of the 2019 Vederprijs.
