PhD in Engineering - Intelligent reflecting surface for Wireless Coverage Enhancement


Project Description

Intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) is a revolutionary and transformative technology for wireless communication coverage enhancement, in addition to achieving spectrum and energy-efficient wireless communication. It is the first time ever we can control the wireless channels and mitigate the negative effects of multipath channel, an IRS consists of a large number of low-cost passive elements each being able to reflect the incident signal independently without the need of radio-frequency (RF) chains. It can provide low cost, green, flexible and small-size solutions for further wireless communications. This project will investigate the optimal IRS beamforming and beam management algorithms, both analytical and simulation results will be provided to guide the practical IRS deployment.

Please note this project will only be advertised until a suitable applicant is found and so could be filled prior to the deadline.

Funding Notes

The studentship is supported by BT EPSRC iCASE , and it will cover home tuition fees and provide a stipend at the UKRI rate for 3.5 years (£15,245 for session 2020/21).
