Optical sensing techniques will measure helicopter gearbox health in real-time in a new Royal Society Industry Fellowship at the Zepler Institute for Photonics and Nanoelectronics. The prestigious fellowship, led by Dr Christopher Holmes in partnership with GE Aviation, will build understanding of potentially-fatal mechanical failures and feed the information into machine learning models.Read More
We are delighted that in accordance with Government guidance encouraging laboratory-based research to be resumed in a safe manner, the clean rooms and laser laboratories are open for priority research and development work.
Risk assessments and significant changes to operating procedures have been conducted to ensure safety is maintained at all times.
We are operating with reduced occupancy and added hygiene so that the rules on social distancing and good practice are met.
The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is our utmost priority, and Government advice continues to be that those who can work from home should continue to do so.
This is good news for our research and enterprise activities and means PhD students can continue their studies.
We are enormously grateful to our sponsors and staff for bearing with us in these difficult times. Your generous support ensures our community continues to thrive.
Professor Sir David Payne
