Useful Resources

Microelectronics Laboratory (meLAB) Group, University of Glasgow

We aim to promote and support engineering and physical science research in microelectronics design, spintronics, magnetic sensors, and energy harvesting. Our research is broadly ranging from theoretical, simulation, design, fabrication and experimental work in fundamental physics to applications of wearable and implantable electronics.

Founded in July 2017, meLAB aims to promote and support engineering and physical science research in microelectronics design, spintronics, magnetic sensors, and energy harvesting. We have authored over 200 articles in top peer-reviewed journals (e.g. Nature Electronics, Advanced Materials, IEEE Solid-State Circuits Journal, IEEE Transactions Circuits and Systems, IEEE Transactions Electron Devices etc.)

Centre for Medical & Industrial Ultrasonics (C-MIU), Glasgow

C-MIU brings together people in an environment that stimulates world-leading research, which is shared with academia, industry, clinicians and the public, and provides research-led training for future leaders in ultrasonics.

Building on the foundation of ultrasonics research established at the University in 1996 by Prof Margaret Lucas, C-MIU has a core team of 8 academics, with over 30 researchers, bringing in over £1.5M per annum, from RCUK, NIH, Wellcome Trust and other sources. MIU is managing the £7.7m Ultrasurge programme grant, led by Prof Lucas, and, with our partners in CUE, is facilitating the recently awarded EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Ultrasonic Engineering, led by Prof. Sandy Cochran.

Communications, Sensing & Imaging (CSI) Group, University of Glasgow

The Communications, Sensing and Imaging (CSI) group at the University of Glasgow covers a wide range of both basic and applied research. We focus on first principles of engineering science with a goal to realise efficient and optimized wireless systems and components for communications, sensing and imaging applications.

Our research has been funded by major research councils and local & international funding bodies, including the Scottish Government, EU-Horizon 2020, EPSRC, CDE/DSTL, UKRI, Innovate UK, IAA, GCRF, QNRF and UAEF. Our highlight project on Scotland 5G Centre brings together academia and industry to test, develop and deploy their 5G applications and solutions on our campus wide 5G laboratory.

James Watt Nanofabrication Centre

The UK's leading Nanofabrication cleanroom based at the University of Glasgow.

The James Watt nanofabrication Centre (JWNC) undertakes fundamental, applied and commercial research, development and small scale production using a vast array of developed process modules and background IP which can provide integrated processes to deliver circuits, devices, systems and solutions. It has a 1400 m2 cleanroom which houses over £35M of state-of-the-art fabrication and metrology equipment. It is one of the leading centres of research and international collaboration in micro & nanofabrication technologies undertaking fundamental, applied and commercial research, and small industrial prototyping and production runs. The JWNC is in a unique position to enable research and development in the integrated systems required for the 21st century applications.
