Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.
In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field. You will benefit from comprehensive support and guidance from our Doctoral College, including tailored careers advice, to help you succeed in your research and future career.
In recent years, body-worn electronic systems have gained in popularity and show great potential in the commercial and military sectors. Providing robust and easy to use connections between systems located on different parts of the body remains challenging, especially so at radio frequencies. This PhD will attempt to develop flexible high data-rate interconnects that are strong, reliable and low loss.
