Telecommunications

At Monash:

Monash's academics are leading exciting new developments in telecommunications, from sensor networks through wireless networks, to 1000 km optical communications systems that provide the freeways for your internet data. Our work draws on the fundamental disciplines signal processing and mathematical optimisation, combined with our experience in optical physics (photonics), extremely-high bandwidth electronics, numerical modelling of devices and simulation of systems, and practical experimental skills. We have recently expanded our team with highly-cited researchers from around the world. Our work is being commercialised by Australian companies (Ofidium, Austanda, Analog Devices Australia) for which we continue to perform contract research. We are a highly-creative group with substantial and significant publications and products to our names.

Other exciting areas include:

  • Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing for optical and radio wireless transmission (Prof. Jean Armstrong)
  • Communications coding theory, MIMO systems (Prof. Emanuele Viterbo and Dr Yi Hong)
  • Long-Haul Communications systems using Optical OFDM (Prof. Arthur Lowery)
  • Photonic device, circuit and systems simulations (Dr Le Binh, Prof. Arthur Lowery)
  • Optical network optimisation (Assoc. Prof. Malin Premaratne)
  • Silicon photonic devices (Assoc. Prof. Malin Premaratne)
  • Sensor networks and protocols (Dr. Ahemet Sekercioglu)
  • Photonic circuits for next-generation long-haul telecommunications (Prof. Arthur Lowery)
  • Photonic signal processing (Dr Le Binh)
