Fundamental technologies

This research area involves 32 Researchers, including 2 PIs, 11 senior, researchers, 6 postdoctoral researchers, 1 postdoctoral trainee, and 12 PhD students. The area covers theoretical principles and practical aspects of optical and wireless communications and signal processing: physical-access layers in 5G and beyond networks, ultra-dense networks, mmWave transmission, massive machine-type-communications, efficient utilization of TDD and FDD bands, heterogeneous networks, wireless power transfer, energy-efficient application offloading on multiple cloud servers, energy-efficient high-dimensional MIMO processing, visible light communications, positioning systems, data analytics (including reinforcement learning and graph signal processing) for the analysis and operation of wireless networks (5G, IoT, URLLC) and optical networks, (SDN, optical access for FTTH and FTTA).
