Professor K.J. Ray Liu has co-written Ultra-Wideband Communications Systems: Multiband OFDM Approach with a former student, W. Pam Siriwongpairat.

The book is a comprehensive overview of fundamental issues related to designing, implementing, and deploying UWB multiband OFDM systems. It 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 book examines major advanced state-of-the-art technology that enhances the performance of standardized multiband OFDM technology.

Siriwongpairat received a B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, in 1999, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland in 2001 and 2005. She also was a postdoctoral researcher with ECE and ISR. Siriwongpairat is currently a wireless communications specialist with Meteor Communications Corp. 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.
