The Centre for Wireless Innovation at Queen’s University Belfast is the UK’s largest research, development and exploitation base in physical layer wireless communications, and one of the strongest in Europe. Our 60 research engineers invent underpinning technologies for Mobile (5G and beyond), Medical (Wearables/Implantables antennas) and Space (Earth Observation spacecraft antennas).
Our work focuses on mmWave cellular communications, massive MIMO, cell-free mobile networks, retrodirective antennas, flat self-steered high gain active antennas (24 GHz – 60GHz), secure and energy-efficient small cell networks, high-efficiency switched-mode power amplifiers, electromagnetic media, to optimize 5G networks (above 20GHz), IoT/IIoT, C-V2X / 5G-V2X, next-generation EO satellites and antennas for implantable/wearable medical devices.
We are keen to work with mobile network infrastructure OEMs on antenna and RF front-end design, passive MIMO sensing, channel measurements, characterisation and modelling, interference modelling and mitigation, multiple antenna systems, millimetre-wave communications, localisation and tracking. Applications we target are Advanced 5G (20 – 60 GHz), Connected Health, Smart Factories, Industry 4.0, CAVs, Cobotics and In-Body Communications.
