Professor Alain Peden

Alain Peden is a Professor at Telecom Bretagne. He received his Ph.D. degree in Microwave Electronics from the University of Bretagne Occidentale, Brest, in 1991. From 1986 to 1988, he worked on the design of low noise and power MMIC amplifiers at Thomson Hybrides et Microondes, Orsay, France. In 1991, he joined Telecom Bretagne and the LEST laboratory in Brest, where his research activities focused mainly on load-pull characterization of transistors in the Ka band and on the design of quasi-optical amplifiers. Since 2003, his research activities, within the Lab-STICC (Laboratoire en Sciences et Techniques de l’Information, de la Communication et de la Connaissance) in Brest, have been dealing with millimetre wave applications, such as power combining techniques for solid state power amplifiers (K and Ka band satellite applications) and automotive radar in the W band (design of simulation platforms for short- and long- range radars).
