Associate Professor Jennifer Kitchen joined Arizona State University in 2013. Her research focuses on improvements in efficiency and power management for high-frequency (RF, mmWave) circuits and systems. She is using exotic materials such as gallium-nitride to create high-efficiency power management systems for solar arrays and batteries. She is also working on a higher level of integration, bringing greater functionality on a single integrated circuit.
- RF Integrated Transceivers on silicon and III-V processes (GaN).
- High-performance Power Management systems for Green Energy, specifically solar arrays, and wireless communications systems.
- Programmable, broadband, wireless transceivers for future generation (5G) wireless communication systems.
