Alejandro Delgado Gutiérrez
Associate Professor (retired)
Alejandro Delgado Gutiérrez, wasborn in Madrid, August 4th 1949. He achieved the degree of PhD in Telecommunication Engineering by the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) in December 1974.
He was Associate Professor since 1972 at the Superior School of Telecommunication Engineering of Madrid, at UPM. He have taught the topics of “Microwave Engineering”, “High Frequency Circuits” and “Televeision”, including theoretical lectures and Lab practices. He was the Coordinator of the Television Area at the Electromagnetism and Circuits Theory Department, nowadays integrated in the Department of “Signals, Systems and Radiofrequency”.
His research activities at the University were related to the development of thin-film technology on ceramic substrate for miniaturized microwave circuits and the design of passive and active devices of high frequency circuits in microstrip line. He was with the Applied Electromagnetism Group from the beginning.
As R & D Director in private companies in the electronics sector since 1982, he has been the manager of research projects for development of terminals for mobile communication via satellite, for reception and data processing of meteorological satellites, and for the design and manufacturing of transmitters and transponders for analogue and digital television. He had an active contribution to the digital TV network deployment in Spain.
Presently retired since 2014.
Mariano Barba Gea
Associate Professor (passed away on July 20, 2017)
Mariano Barba was born in Murcia, Spain. He received the Electrical Engineering degree in ingeniero de telecomunicación and thePh.D. degreefromthe Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid (UPM), Spain, in 1990 and 1996, respectively. From 1991 to 1994, he was a Post-Graduate Researcher with the Applied Electromagnetism Group (GEA) in the “ETS de Ingenieros de Telecomunicación” at UPM. During this time, he developed numerical methods and algorithms to characterize and design microwave passive devices. From 1994 to 2002, he was involved in the research and development departments of several companies and institutions developing antennas and microwave circuits for space and terrestrial communication applications. In 2002, he joined the Applied Electromagnetism Group, UPM, as an Associate Professor.
Prof. Barba died in July 2017. At the end of his life, he was involved in the development and design of multibeam and reconfigurable antennas. All through his life, he focused on the analysis, characterization, and design of antenna and microwave circuits.
