School of engineering in Physics, Applied Physics, Electronics & Materials
This course deals with the fondamental principles (physical layer) of wireless communications. The first objective is the comprehension of the specificities of the radio-mobile communication channel (multi-path propagation, Doppler effect) and consequences (interference, fading). The second objective is to give an overview about advanced and recent techniques (OFDM modulation multiple acces CDMA, diversity technique, ...) for communication, diffusion or localisation (WIFI, UMTS, TNT, Galileo, ...).Contact Laurent ROS
I - Radio-mobile channel modelisation (multi-path propagation, base-band complex equivalent channel, Coherence Bandwidth and coherence Time, Rayleign and Rice models, Doppler spectrum, ...)
II - Performance under flat fading Rayleigh channel and improvement thanks to diversity techniques
III - Spread-spectrum and Multiple Access Technique based on CDMA (Coded-Division-Multiple-Access)
IV - Multi-carrier Techniques based on OFDM (Orthogonal-Frequency-Division-Multiplexing)
Basic Course in "digital communications" and "Random signal Processing"
