Device noise mechanisms and noise models, thermodynamics of fluctuations. Low-noise circuits and devices, RF microelectronics, from devices to integrated circuits and packaging.
Dr. Gupta is an authority on the physical theory of noise in electron devices, and has discovered fundamental results on thermal fluctuations under nonlinear and non-equilibrium conditions that apply to nonlinear, active, and nano-scale devices. His broader interest in radio-frequency (RF) microelectronics ranges from RF devices and components, to RF integrated circuits and packaging. His work has advanced the technology of low-noise RF devices and circuits, which find applications in the RF front-end of wireless communication systems.
Dr. Gupta received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and presently also serves as the RF Communications Systems Industry Chair Professor at San Diego State University, and as the Director of SDSU Communication Systems and Signal Processing Institute. Dr. Gupta is an IEEE Fellow; the recipient of the 2008 Distinguished Microwave Educator Award from IEEE Microwave Theory & Techniques Society; a Distinguished Microwave Lecturer for that Society; a past Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Microwave and Guided Wave Letters and of IEEE Microwave Magazine; and has served as the Chair of the Technical program Committee of the International Microwave Symposium for 2010, and as the Editor of three IEEE Press books.
