Radio Frequency and Microwave research

The Group focuses on a variety of multidisciplinary activities.

The group is investigating advanced microwave technologies to address current sustainability goals, climate change and reduction of carbon footprint.

The group is specialising in:

  • Theoretical simulation of bespoke systems
  • Design and development of bespoke reactors for tailored applications
  • Industrial scale prototyping
  • Design of unique atmospheric plasma torches
  • In-line Microwave Sensor applications
  • Microwave processing and pre-processing of materials for manufacturing
  • Energy from waste (gasification, pyrolysis and torrefaction)
  • Process Enhancement i.e. microwave enhanced electrocoagulation for water purification

The Radio Frequency and Microwave Technologies Research Theme has a very successful history for applying their specialism into real-world applications and has completed research projects funded by the European Union, Innovate UK, UK Ministry of Defence and Carbon Trust. The Group has also received direct funding from industry for projects related to recycling, process enhancement, non-invasive sensing for built environment with the TRL level ranging from 1 to 8.
