|The George Green Institute|
The Institute has considerable expertise in the development and application of numerical methods to the simulation of engineering systems. It pioneered the development of the Transmission Line Modelling (TLM) method in the early 1970s and has continued ever since to be a centre of expertise for this important and now well established technique. The fundamental development of TLM continues with the introduction recently of hybrid nodes, a multigrid mesh, the supercondensed node, and aims at increasing efficiency and versatility of the method.
In the application area, the Laboratory has a very wide range of interests and expertise covering Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), interaction of lightning and EMP with structures, electrical and thermal modelling of lasers and semiconductor devices, microwave circuits, antennas, Microwave Heating, Field-Particle Interaction and simulation of transients in circuits, and the modelling of dispersive materials.
Members of the Laboratory are involved in the activities of other groups both inside and outside the University thus increasing considerably its expertise and capabilities. Examples are collaborative work with the Materials and Microwave Processing Group (MaMP) at Nottingham, the Division of Electrical Science at the National Physical Laboratory and The University of York.
