Prof Karl Woodbridge
Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering
Torrington Place
  • Emeritus Professor of Electronic Engineering
  • Dept of Electronic & Electrical Eng
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Dr. Karl Woodbridge joined University College London in 1990 after 11 years working for Philips Electronics latterly as a project manager in the 111-V semiconductor device area. 

He is currently a Reader in Electronic Engineering in the Sensor Systems and Circuits group. He has research interests in the semiconductor and RF sensor areas. 

He has extensive experience of research proposal, journal and conference paper reviewing and has been served on organizing and technical committees for many national and international conferences. He is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the IET, a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and a visiting Professor in the Radar and Remote Sensing Group at the University of Cape Town. 

Research Summary

Research interests in the semiconductor and RF sensor areas. Semiconductor research is based on Molecular Beam Epitaxial growth of nanostructures on 111/V and Si substrates, mainly for photonic devices.  RF research interests are mainly centered on radar sensors and networks. Current RF research activities at UCL include multistatic and netted radar systems, radar target detection, tracking and classification, terrain and marine radar sensing and pervasive passive detection using wireless transmissions. His research activities have been carried out in research investigator and technical consultancy roles for a wide range of customers in the civil and defence areas. Published or presented over 170 journal and conference papers in the above areas.
