This talk presents an overview of research in the Microwave Research Group at the University of Colorado Boulder, with a more detailed discussion of two projects. First, power amplifiers (PAs) with high efficiency and good linearity for signals with wide instantaneous bandwidths (>100MHz) and high peak-to-average power ratios (PAPR > 10dB) will be overviewed. Examples of supply modulation of different X to K-band GaN PAs are discussed. An overview of W-band GaN MMIC PAs and other front-end circuits is also given.  The second topic is a receiver project for near-field internal temperature measurements of the human body. In this approach, the total blackbody power from a tissue stack is received by a 1.4-GHz probe placed on the skin. Temperature retrieval for sub-surface tissue layers is performed using near-field weighting functions, obtained by full-wave simulations with known tissue complex electrical parameters. Measurements are presented using a calibrated Dicke radiometer at 1.4GHz for various phantom tissues. It is shown that temperature can be tracked within a fraction of a degree for a phantom muscle tissue layer under phantom fat and skin layers.
