MSc S Hehenberger

PhD student
Microwave Sensing, Signals and Systems (MS3), Department of Microelectronics

Expertise: His main research interests are antenna and array miniaturization, as well as new design strategies and antenna concepts enabled by additive manufacturing.


Simon Hehenberger was born in Rohrbach, Austria, in 1993. He completed his BSc and MSc in electronics and information technology at the Johannes Kepler University in 2017 and 2020. During his master's program, he worked on various projects focusing on high-frequency systems and radar while completing his master thesis about the design, simulation, and test of a fully functional FMCW - MIMO radar system with non-uniform arrays and substrate integrated waveguides. After graduation, he joined the Institute for Communication and Navigation of the German Aerospace Center, where he works on miniaturized dielectric resonator antennas, arrays, and methods for array decoupling with a focus on satellite navigation applications. In 2021, he became an external Ph.D. student in the Microwave Sensing, Signals, and Systems group at TU Delft.
