Speaker: Kenneth Kolodziej, MIT Lincoln Laboratory
Many wireless systems could benefit from the ability to transmit and receive on the same frequency at the same time, which is known as In-Band Full-Duplex (IBFD) and/or Simultaneous Transmit and Receive (STAR). This technology could lead to enhanced spectral efficiency for future wireless networks, such as fifth-generation New Radio (5G NR) and beyond, and/or could enable capabilities and applications that were previously considered impossible, such as IBFD with phased array systems. This talk will highlight some of the key technologies required to suppress the inherent self-interference that is generated in IBFD systems, and will present several applications that have incorporate these concepts.
Mr. Kenneth E. Kolodziej is a technical staff member in the RF Technology Group, where he is a principal investigator on wideband electronic and simultaneous transmit and receive (STAR) systems. Since joining Lincoln Laboratory, Mr. Kolodziej has conducted research on RF, microwave and photonic circuits, including antenna, radar and communication systems. Mr. Kolodziej also teaches an electromagnetics course to undergraduate students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and several "Build-a-Radar" courses on MIT campus. Mr. Kolodziej received his BE and ME degrees in electrical engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey.
