The School’s Professor Harald Haas is leading the University’s involvement in INITIATE, an EPSRC-funded project which has just opened a call for collaboration from third party projects to explore the future capabilities of the internet. INITIATE brings together the UK’s expertise in network research and innovation along with operational, state-of the-art facilities at five leading networking labs in the Universities of Bristol, Lancaster, Edinburgh and King’s College London as well as at Digital Catapult, London.
School tech spin-out PureLifi has raised $18 million (£14m) to support a roll-out of its lifi technology to the mass consumer market. Lifi is a cellular wireless networking technology invented by Professor Harald Haas of the School’s Research Institute for Digital Communications. This financial boost will enable the company to focus on developing components which can be easily integrated into mobile decides, such as phones, laptops and tablets, and provide these to manufacturers operating on a mass scale.
REF eligible staff are invited to declare any circumstances that have impacted on their ability to research productively (e.g. extended periods of family-related leave, secondments or career breaks) during the REF 2021 assessment period.
A digital communication engineer appointment is available in the Li-Fi Research and Development Centre. The LiFi Research and Development Centre at the University of Edinburgh is the world leading centre which translates fundamental Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 3 visible light communication research into commercial TRL 6 reference platforms for a large number of industries.
The primary focus of the programme proposed here is to build across two universities (Strathclyde and Edinburgh) a world leading UK research, development and applications capability in the field of in-situ chemical and particulate measurement and imaging diagnostics for energy process engineering. Independently, the two university groups already have globally eminent capabilities in laser-based chemical and particulate measurement and imaging technologies. They have recently been working in partnership on a highly complex engineering project (EPSRC FLITES) to realise a chemical species measurement and diagnostic imaging system (7m diameter) that can be used on the exhaust plume of the largest gas turbine (aero) engines for engine health monitoring and fuels evaluation. Success depended on the skills acquired by the team and their highly collaborative partnership working. A key objective is to keep this team together and to enhance their capability, thus underpinning the research and development of industrial products, technology and applications. The proposed grant would also accelerate the exploitation of a strategic opportunity in the field that arises from the above work and from recent recruitment of academic staff to augment their activities. The proposed programme will result in a suite of new (probably hybrid) validated, diagnostic techniques for high-temperature energy processes (e.g. fuel cells, gas turbine engines, ammonia-burning engines, flame systems, etc.).
The EU-ITN project ENLIGT’EM (https://enlightem.eu/) is now recruiting 15 early stage researchers (ESRs) to work on a diverse range of challenges in visible light communications/LiFi. Two of these positions, ESR 1.1 and ESR 2.1, are now available in the LiFi R&D Centre, School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh.
