Peter joined the CDT in September 2018, having previously completed a BSc in Physics at University College Dublin.
For his University of Glasgow Semester 1 Mini Project, Peter is working with Professor Tony Kelly on:
GaN based optical communications
Gallium Nitride(GaN) lasers and LEDs are emerging devices with a wide range of applications in subsea and terrestrial communications, quantum technologies, display light sources and medical instrumentation. This project will be concerned with building and measuring the performance of a prototype free space communications system based on commercial lasers and detectors. If time allows, advanced modulation formats such as OFDM can be explored.
