The Millimetre Wave & EPR Group in the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of St Andrews specialises in applied research and instrumentation development for applications across the millimetre and sub-millimetre wave parts of the spectrum.
Our research broadly falls into the following three themes:
• Magnetic Resonance, which encompasses the spectroscopic techniques of electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and dynamic nuclear polarisation (DNP). We specialise in developing state-of-the-art magnetic resonance instrumentation complemented by a broad programme of spectroscopic measurements.
• Radar, with a focus on the application of sub-/millimetre wave radar for applications in security and environmental remote sensing. Our work considers fundamental radar signature phenomenology, radar system development and signal processing methods.
• Technology, which concerns the development of underpinning technology that is used across the other two themes, some of which is commercialised through industrial partners.
You can find more details on the relevant web pages for each theme.
