RF & Microwave


A call with the mobile phone, assistance systems in the automotive field and aviation safety have one thing in common: Electromagnetic signals must be processed fast and reliably. Design, development and operation of such systems require measurement support at a high level. The RF & Microwave laboratory makes an important contribution by developing the metrological basis for these and related technologies.


The measurement services in RF & MW encompass calibrations, courses and consulting. Feel free to contact us in case of questions.


With our calibration services, we ensure the traceability of RF & MW measuring instruments to the national measurement standards.

Our calibration certificates are recognised internationally. For this purpose, we operate a quality assurance system in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025.

Research and development

With the aid of research and development projects, we keep pace with technological and social developments. We collaborate with metrology institutes, academia and industry. With these partners we work in projects and participate in national and international research programmes.

As a research partner of (Swiss Innovation Agency) we seek the cooperation with Swiss industrial partners in Innosuisse projects.
