DIT Inventor Competition Award 2012 for Adam Narbudowicz, Dr. Xiulong Bao and Prof. Max Ammann

DIT Inventor Competition Award 2012 for Adam Narbudowicz, Dr. Xiulong Bao and Prof. Max Ammann
Adam Narbudowicz, Dr. Xiulong Bao and Professor Max Ammann of the Antenna & High Frequency Research Centre took the postgraduate/staff prize in the DIT Inventor Competition 2012 for their Omni-Directional CP Antenna project. The award was presented by Minister for Research and Innovation Sean Sherlock.
The antenna can be used in WLAN routers and access points and means multiple antennas can be reduced to one. Its circular polarisation means devices can receive or transmit strong signals at any angle. This will improve connection quality and reduce distortion or streaming delays that occur when watching video on a poorly performing radio link. The antenna is also ideal for large spaces such as airport halls as its improved performance will reduce the number of access points needed to eliminate deadspots.
