    Aerosols are important in a wide range of scientific disciplines, from the delivery of drugs to the lungs, to their impact on the earth's climate and their role in climate change, through to their application in the delivery of fuels for combustion, and their processing...

    Since the development of the first Kerr-lens mode-locked lasers in 1990, practical femtosecond lasers in a wide variety of configurations have delivered handsomely to a significant number of major scientific developments. It has to be recognised that the application spa...

    In this project we propose to investigate techniques that will allow an additional human sense, haptic touch (or reflected force), to be sent over the Internet. Today's telecommunications and computer networks have been designed to carry information that pertains to onl...

  • project . 2008 - 2011
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: EP/G014124/1
    Funder Contribution: 283,718 GBP
    Partners: University of Birmingham, NRC

    The ability to control the evolution of a reaction is a long-standing goal of chemistry. One approach is to use the electric field provided by a laser pulse as the guide. Recent work has focused on shaping and timing the pulse so that the field interacts with the molecu...

  • project . 2007 - 2011
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: EP/E042023/1
    Funder Contribution: 545,835 GBP
    Partners: TU/e, UBC, University of Oxford

    Software systems are rarely written from scratch: they evolve over long periods of time. When a change is made, this often affects many different locations in a system, and it is hard to make a change consistently. For that reason, automated tools to help the process of...

  • project . 2011 - 2011
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: EP/H029583/1
    Funder Contribution: 148,329 GBP
    Partners: T-Ray Science Inc, University of Leeds

    In this proposal, we seek Follow-on funding to support the technical and commercial development of a cheap highly portable terahertz (THz) frequency time-domain spectrometer that will, within a five year timescale, reduce both the cost and size of such instrumentation b...

    Funder Contribution: 312,723 GBP
    Partners: University of Bath, Petrobank Energy and Resources Ltd

    Heavy crude oil and bitumen are a vast, largely unexploited hydrocarbon resource, with barely 1% produced so far, compared with more than 50% of conventional light oil (like the North Sea). More than 80% of this heavy, unconventional oil, lies in the Western hemisphere,...

  • project . 2006 - 2011

    Funder Contribution: 563,957 GBP
    Partners: RWDI, University of Bristol, NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL OF CANADA

    As more slender and more adventurous structures, such as cable-stayed bridges, are constructed, they become increasingly susceptible to large amplitude vibrations, particularly due to aerodynamic loading. Wind-induced vibrations of bridge decks, cables, towers, lamp col...

  • project . 2009 - 2011
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: EP/H023836/1
    Funder Contribution: 195,938 GBP
    Partners: University of Salford, McMaster University

    The aim of Silicon photonics is nothing less than the complete convergence of optics and electronics. In the first instance this endeaviour was aimed at oversoming the limitations imposed by nature in the transport of information using electrons. However, the work has a...

    Funder: UKRI Project Code: EP/F042728/1
    Funder Contribution: 224,957 GBP
    Partners: McGill University, University of Oxford, UvA

    I aim to develop high level structures for reasoning about knowledge of agents in a multi-agent system where agents communicate and as a result update their information. All of us take part in such situations when communicating through the internet, surfing the web, bid...
