Biography

Patrick Roblin was born in Paris, France, in September 1958. He received the Maitrise de Physique degree from the Louis Pasteur University, Strasbourg, France, in 1980, and the D.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from 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 is 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.

Research Interests

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). Predistortion linearization and behavioral modeling of multi-carrier RF power amplifiers.
