Research opportunities within the Institute
The research focus of the Institute is on electromagnetic analysis and simulation techniques, applied as a generic discipline across a variety of frequencies and applications. Many of the tools utilize common underlying themes, such as coupled-physics solutions, a requirement to deal with complexity, incorporation of diverse spatial and temporal scales, a necessity to adapt to new concepts and technologies in a concurrent manner, and importantly, the requirement for validation and comparison with experimental results
Among the research projects the Institute has developed are the safe and reliable operation of IT and electronic equipment; the design and packaging of optoelectronic components; the effect of electromagnetic radiation on the human body and ensuring the continuity of power supplies through the National Grid. The academic strength in engineering is enhanced through multidisciplinary projects with other experts across the University including those working in the Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Imaging Centre, the School of Biology and the School of Mathematical Sciences.
The Institute, which includes the Bookham centre of excellence
for optoelectronic simulation, offers postgraduate teaching and training
covering all areas of electromagnetics. The core personnel comprise five
full-time academics, a senior experimental officer, 12 research associates
and around 12 postgraduate students and visiting scholars. The international
excellence of the institute’s work has been recognized with the
award of a prestigious Platform Grant from the Engineering and Physical
Sciences Research Council.
The Institute can offer study programmes leading to M.Res and Ph.D. degrees. Further details of the M.Res degree can be found here and available Ph.D studentships here. The M.Res information is also available in Chinese as a webpage here and a PDF document here
