Research Tasks

Four PhD students are working on the challenges mentioned above, addressing free-space optical communication, dynamic routing in a fibre backbone, radio techniques for high-capacity data transfer and device localisation and tracking, and advanced overall network management and control, respectively.

In addition to four PhD students, BROWSE employs a post-doctoral researcher to provide guidance and support to the PhD students. Moreover, the post-doc has to work out the overall system architecture in detail, while carefully aligning the capabilities of each of the constituting techniques. Specifically, the post-doc takes the leading role in the system integration work in order to design, implement and validate an integrated laboratory demonstrator.
