The drive for convenience and cost-effectiveness drives research in sensors and devices. Whether it be smaller and lighter technologies, less-invasive medical procedures, or improving devices for sensing and communication, this is a fast-paced area of research.
The work in sensors takes place within four main laboratories, and consists of cutting-edge research for use in many application areas, ranging from biomedical imaging and diagnosis through to gas sensing and materials inspection. This wide range of applications arises from the unique sensors and imaging systems that the four laboratories have developed. Central to this activity is the ability to design signals and image processing approaches that enable sensors to make measurements more reliably.
This group is developing a wide range of new technologies and includes several laboratories:
