Wireless Communications Research Group (WiCR)
As the world becomes more dependent on wireless communications, understanding electromagnetic waves and the part they play in 5G networks, driver-less cars and space applications, becomes increasingly important.
The WiCR Group are responsible for improving wireless communications through the development of novel antenna designs and radio-frequency devices. They provide communication solutions to a wide range of industries including Space, Defence, Wireless Infrastructure, Mobile Communications and the built and natural environments.
Previous developments include: circularly polarised antennas for handsets, reconfigurable antennas, wearable technology embedded into defence uniforms, textile connectors, novel metamaterials for base station antennas and 3D-printed lenses.
