Underwater single-photon depth imaging (EPS2022/12)

This PhD project aims to investigate novel single‑photon detector arrays for underwater single‑photon depth imaging. The successful candidate will investigate different single-photon technologies to obtain three-dimensional images in several underwater environments. Read more

Motion Planning in Autonomous Robots

The project will focus primarily on Autonomous Robots. The general research theme involves theoretical and experimental study of Autonomous Vehicles with emphasis on advanced motion control for unmanned vehicles. Read more

Flying underwater: multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the swimming dynamics of penguins

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag. Read more

Intelligent Medium Access Control for Underwater Acoustic Communication Networks

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Most research in underwater acoustic communication deals with the physical layer, with primitive and inflexible multiple access, despite the medium access control layer playing a crucial role in providing efficient communication. Read more

Exploitation of Full-Duplex Capability in Underwater Acoustic Communication Networks at the Medium Access Control Layer

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Full-duplex has the potential to double the capacity of point-to-point communication links, but these benefits can only be fully realised in communication networks through development of a suitable medium access control layer. Read more

Application of Satellite Medium Access Control Principles to Underwater Acoustic Communication Networks

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Acoustic waves are widely accepted as the most suitable means of communicating underwater, since radio waves suffer from severe attenuation through water. Read more

Realistic Underwater Acoustic Propagation Model for Medium Access Control Protocol Evaluation

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Successful prediction of the performance of medium access control protocols is dependent on a realistic model of the underlying propagation channel. Read more

Laser-based remote sensing of subsurface water properties

Remote sensing of ocean and coastal waters is of high importance to the defence and environmental science sectors. The overarching goal of this project is to develop laser-based methods based on Raman and/or fluorescence spectroscopy and transition them to the field. Read more

Raman LiDAR Spectroscopy Techniques for Remote Sensing of Subsurface Water Properties: from numerical modelling to the field

Remote sensing of ocean and coastal waters is of high importance to the defence and environmental science sectors. The overarching goal of this project is to demonstrate a capability to determine subsurface temperature and salinity profiles using a novel Raman spectroscopy LiDAR technique. Read more

5+ Fully funded 4-year PhDs in Ultrasonic Engineering at the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde

Ultrasonics is the science and technology of sound at frequencies above the audible range. It is vitally important across many sectors from robotics in the energy industries to medical imaging, with an annual market value of $45 billion. Read more
