University of Nottingham

Published on 10 October 2021

The University of Nottingham (UNOTT) is among the top 10 universities in the UK both in terms of research and teaching and consistently holds a top 80 position in world ranking tables. The well-established interdisciplinary collaboration between the School of Mathematical Sciences and the George Green Institute for Electromagnetics Research (GGIER) forms vital links in this multi-disciplinary and multi-sectorial consortium. It was founded as University College Nottingham in 1881 and was granted royal charter in 1948. The University of Nottingham belongs to the elite research intensive Russell Group association. Nottingham's main campus (University Park) with Jubilee Campus and teaching hospital (Queen's Medical Centre) are located within the City of Nottingham, with a number of smaller campuses and sites elsewhere in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Outside the UK, the university has campuses in Semenyih, Malaysia, and Ningbo, China. The University adheres to the highest of standards, both in terms of its academic schools and in its administrative departments providing support from language training to the welfare of international students and help in finding accommodation.

RISE-6G gives a unique opportunity to bring together advanced wave modelling methods developed in the School of Mathematical Sciences, with electromagnetic control technologies developed in the George Green Institute for Electromagnetics Research.

The School of Mathematical Sciences is one of the largest mathematics departments in the country with 75 teaching staff providing an international research environment with a large student and post graduate population and ample experience in housing long-term visiting researchers. Its Applied Mathematics group has an excellent reputation with ample expertise in linear and nonlinear wave modelling, in particular in the area of wave asymptotics and stochastic wave modelling. The group has an excellent track record in working with engineers covering a broad range of subjects such as Mechanical, Electrical and Chemical Engineering. The School provides appropriate computer hardware and software for the project, including access to the university HPC Linux network.

The George Green Institute for Electromagnetics Research is part of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham is at the forefront of research in electromagnetics theory, modelling, analysis, and simulation. It has strong capabilities in both computational electromagnetics (CEM), analytical and statistical EM modelling (SEM), and has several well-equipped laboratories, EM measurement facilities including several reference measurement sites. Researchers at GGIER have developed an excellent international reputation and proven expertise in a wide range of advanced technology areas related to EM analysis and design, e.g., numerical and analytical electromagnetic modelling, stochastic electromagnetic modelling, analysis and measurement, dynamic EM systems, near-field scanning EM techniques, characterization of EM systems with large numbers of degrees of freedom, interaction of EM fields, modelling and experiments of the physical layer for MIMO communications within complex wired and as well as RIS-assisted wireless systems.
