NQR Landmine Clearance
ARIES – Advanced Radiofrequency-spectroscopic Intelligent Explosives SensorMine, not Mine-like: Landmines and other explosives remnants of conflict cause thousands of casualties and keep millions of acres of land out-of-use long after conflicts end. Current approaches detect anomalies – mine-like objects or metal in the ground – ...

All-Optical Signal Modulation
Summary The large bandwidth obtained using optical signals has led to the transmission and reception of vast amounts of information. Recent technologies have achieved a 1Tbps bandwidth thanks to photonic integrated circuits (PIC). This bandwidth is being further increased, as required by several new applications (Business analytics, Telemedicine, C...

Optical Switch
Summary One of the current aims of nanotechnology is the replacement of ‘slow’ electronic devices with ‘fast’ photonic (light based) ones. Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) are a promising technology for optical devices as they are compact, inexpensive and power efficient. VCSELs have the second highest produc...

Superior Scalable Spatial Sound
“I would like to congratulate you on the apparent naturalness, at least from a first hearing on modest loudspeakers. The source movement was easily detectable and fairly easy to locate.”Francis RumseyChair, Technical Council at Audio Engineering Society“It was great to see how the project has evolved and I'm really impressed by th...
