lifi

School tech spin-out PureLifi has raised $18 million (£14m) to support a roll-out of its lifi technology to the mass consumer market. Lifi is a cellular wireless networking technology invented by Professor Harald Haas of the School’s Research Institute for Digital Communications. This financial boost will enable the company to focus on developing components which can be easily integrated into mobile decides, such as phones, laptops and tablets, and provide these to manufacturers operating on a mass scale.

The inventor of lifi, Professor Harald Haas, is based in the School's Institute for Digital Communications

The School's Professor of Mobile Communications, Harald Haas, has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in recognition of his outstanding and continuing contributions to the profession. Professor Haas has pioneered advances in the design of networked visible light communication systems, known as 'LiFi' (Light Fidelity) based on light emitting diode transmitters and the invention of spatial modulation for simplifying the implementation of mobile multiple input, multiple output wireless transmission systems.
