Major research endeavours within the Department are conducted within four research groups. The foci of these groups are nonlinear circuits and systems (including power electronics, wireless power transfer technologies, renewable energy systems, LED lighting systems and complex networks), communications (including optical and wireless communications, vehicular communications, channel coding, optical sensor systems), signal processing and artificial intelligence (video and image coding, speech and pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and machine learning) and photonic systems and devices (information optics and photovoltaic devices). Other research topics include information security, bio-inspired optimisation techniques and forensics. Currently, over a hundred funded research projects are being undertaken.
