The term Li-Fi was coined by pureLiFi’s CSO, Professor Harald Haas, and refers to visible light communications (VLC) technology that delivers a high-speed, bidirectional networked, mobile communications in a similar manner as Wi-Fi.
The Carbon Capture & Storage Journal Club brings together researchers from various disciplines working on CCS related topics and provides a platform for discussion of inter- and cross-disciplinary concepts.
The carbon capture group at the University of Edinburgh's School of Engineering is one of the largest carbon capture research groupings in the United Kingdom, looking at capture and transportation of carbon dioxide. We have two main fields of interest: adsorption and power plant engineering, within which the members of the group possess a broad range of research expertise.
The Composites Group at The University of Edinburgh was founded in 2015, and has 7 academic and ca. 30 research staff & students (May 2021). Its focus is primarily on fibre reinforced polymer composite materials. Fibres studied include carbon, glass, basalt and natural fibres. Resins studied include both thermosets (e.g. epoxies, vinyl/poly esters) and thermoplastics (e.g.
Compressed sensing is a new rapidly growing research field emerging primarily in the USA, which investigates ways in which we can sample signals at roughly the "information rate" rather than the Nyquist rate.
The integration of distributed and non-dispatchable renewable energy into the wider energy system (electricity, heat/cold and transport) poses significant challenges for the design and operation of the energy system. For example, due to the increasing fraction of non-dispatchable generation it becomes more important to provide novel mechanisms to balance supply and demand.
Fluid dynamics plays an essential role in our everyday life. You might think of our blood flow, on hot summer days the air-conditioning system, the potable water network, or stirring our coffee in the mornings to enhance the mixing process and the heat transfer.
