Liu and Former Student Co-Author Book on Ultra-Wideband Communications Systems


Prof. K. J. Ray Liu has co-authored a book with one of his former students, W. Pam Siriwongpairat, titled Ultra-Wideband Communications Systems: Multiband OFDM Approach.

Ultra-Wideband Multiband OFDM Communications Systems provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamental issues related to designing, implementing, and deploying UWB multiband OFDM systems. The book covers the key physical layer aspects of UWB technology, including spectrum and regulations, UWB channels, modulation techniques, and transceiver architectures, with particular focus on the multiband OFDM approach. In addition, the authors further examine the major advanced state-of-the-art technology to enhance the performance of the standardized multiband OFDM technology.

Siriwongpairat received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, in 1999, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 2001 and 2005, respectively. She is currently a wireless communications specialist with Meteor Communications Corporation, working in the research and development of wireless communications technology. From January 2005 to May 2005, she was a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Institute for Systems Research (ISR), University of Maryland, College Park. Her research interests span a broad range of areas from signal processing to wireless communications and networking, including space-time coding for multi-antenna communications, cross-layer design for wireless networks, communications in mobile ad hoc networks and wireless sensor networks, OFDM systems, and ultrawideband communications.
