A £5M Research Programme on Visible Light Communications…

…has just been funded by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, see: http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/NGBOViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/K00042X/1 .

The programme, entitled ‘Ultra-parallel visible light communications (UP-VLC)’, is a collaboration between leading research groups at the Universities of Strathclyde, Edinburgh, St Andrews, Oxford and Cambridge. Its basis is the >1Gb/s modulation capability recently shown for individual micro-sized gallium nitride LEDs and the idea of aggregating such devices in high-density linear and two-dimensional arrays to enable spatial multiplexing in VLC. The programme will explore both free-space and guided wave embodiments of spatially multiplexed VLC, in particular exploring novel encoding schemes, advanced electronic control, and the development of novel systems demonstrators incorporating custom CMOS photo-detectors.
