He is a professor of high speed electronics and one of the research leaders for the new measurement laboratory, which is headed by Director Jörgen Stenarson. Both of the men were there when the oscilloscope was installed, together with Jan Grahn, professor of microwave electronics, and Simon He, assistant professor.
What is this before us?
"It is an oscilloscope with very high bandwidth. It can intercept signals with a bandwidth of 100 gigahertz, which is the highest in the world. We are going to use it in our projects that focus on wireless and wired communication with high data rates. We are aiming for 100 gigabits per second. "The oscilloscope is a very important aspect of verifying our circuits and systems. It is a very welcome addition," says Herbert Zirath.
First in the world
Chalmers' new oscilloscope is the first one to be delivered in the world.
"This is an important part of the investment from the grant we received from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. This is a central first delivery, and something we are happy to tell our financial backers about," says Jan Grahn.
Research on a higher level
Simon He is an assistant professor at the microwave electronics division and is part of the terahertz laboratory's project team. He is very pleased with the new oscilloscope:
"Our older instruments were limiting the research. Our new equipment allows us to perform research on a much higher level, and we can expect greatly improved results in the near future. It is a good feeling to be the first in the world to have the new oscilloscope," says Simon He.
Cooperation a milestone for supplier
The oscilloscope is a Lecroy and was delivered to Chalmers by Thomas Ogestadh and Rabee al Hayek from Anritsu.
"We are extremely grateful for being entrusted with the delivery and are very happy we can cooperate with Chalmers. I hope the cooperation will benefit us both. The equipment will help Chalmers attract more students and get projects since the oscilloscope is the only one in the world. For our part, cooperating with Chalmers is a milestone in Anritsu's history. And it is gratifying that specifically Gothenburg is the location of the first delivery," says Thomas Ogestadh, who is the business development manager at Anritsu.
The company is headquartered in Stockholm, but also has representatives in Gothenburg and Lund.
