The microwave laboratory was started during 1960s with Prof.J.Sobhanadri as its Head. With the German assistance, the microwave test benches for the frequency spectrum of 5 to 70 GHz were installed. Still in working condition, the test benches have helped the lab to produce more than 25 Ph.D., numerous M.Sc. and M.Tech. Project students. The lab has also published over 100 research papers in Refereed journals and an equal number in conferences.
