Optimum Transceiver Design For Visible Light Communication/LiFi

This is a project in electronic design of transceivers for visible light communications or LiFi. The goal is to investigate receiver and transmitter architectures that will improve the received signal sensitivity, linearity and bandwidth. The project will involve prototyping using commercially available components and experimentation to evaluate the performance of different transceiver designs.

The project will be carried out in our world-class LiFi R&D Centre within the School of Engineering.

There is no application deadline for this position but it will close once a suitable candidate has been found.
