Prof. Amit Mehta is highly experienced and respected leader in delivery of innovative, high value (net multimillion £) and high impact research projects. Amit leads a team of over 20 very talented skilled research engineers for delivering a variety of novel fundamental research for civilian, research organizations (e.g. UK EPSRC / EU) and defence needs. His industry project partners are world leading multi-billion companies such as Fujitsu, HP Labs, Sony, Airbus, MBDA, BAE, European Space Agency, MoD, DHS, Satellite Catapult - UK, etc. He has over 100 international publications (> 10 REF Four star), 6 patents / design rights, has supervised over 100 student projects (PhDs, MSc & UG) and is a regular invited keynote speaker at international conferences for new knowledge dissemination. He enjoys mentoring and coaching.
Enabling students to secure strong understanding of the current microwave and RF communication technologies, both from the theoretical and experimental point of views.
After passing Part One students will need to conduct a research project and write a dissertation. The module aims to develop fundamental research skills. It comprises the development of supervised research work leading to a dissertation in the field of the Master's degree programme. The specific research topic will be chosen by the student following consultation with academic staff.
The module reviews linear modulations, channel models for radio wave propagation in wireless communications, and the receiver design principles. The transmission diversity techniques are also included. In the second part, the techniques used in optical wireless communications are explained.
The module develops the analysis and synthesis of distributed circuits and the principles of microwave antennas.
