Researchers Dr Xi Zhu
Brief description The aim of this project is to build a foundation for ultra-low-power wireless circuit design using technologies other than silicon. Scaling of transistors in silicon has been pushed to its limit and is of marginal benefit for low-power wireless circuit design. This project aims to address these limits by developing energy-efficient technology for wireless applications. The intended outcome of this project will be a self-powered, high data rate receiver that will be critical in 5th-generation wireless systems. This could be used for a range of innovative wireless applications, for example in health care and environmental monitoring.
