Patrick Roblin was born in Paris, France, in September 1958. He
received the Maîtrise de Physique degree from the
L' Université Louis Pasteur,
Strasbourg, France, in 1980, and the D.Sc. degree in electrical
Washington University, St. Louis, MO, in 1984.
In 1984, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
at The Ohio State University (OSU), Columbus, OH where he
is currently a Professor. His present research interests
include the measurement, modeling, design and linearization of non-linear
RF devices and circuits such as power-amplifiers, oscillators and modulators.
He authored and co-authored two textbooks published by Cambridge University Press.
He is the founder of the Non-Linear RF research lab at OSU.
He has developed at OSU
two educational RF/microwave laboratories and associated curriculum for
training both undergraduate and graduate students.
He is currently serving as a distinguished microwave lecturer for IEEE MTT.
Physics of semiconductor heterostructure devices.
Electro-thermal measurement and modeling of semiconductor devices (e.g., LDMOSFETs, GaN HEMT).
Non-linear, broadband and pulsed RF measurements with the large signal network analyzer (LSNA).
Design of power RF amplifiers and nonlinear RFICs circuits (oscillators and mixers) using Nonlinear Embedding Device models.
Predistortion linearization and behavioral modeling of multi-carrier and broadband RF power amplifiers.
