New Invention: Sensor for safer wireless power

Nuclear quadrupole resonance sensor for safer wireless power

Wireless power transfer (WPT) is likely to be widely adopted throughout the automotive industry as it represents the most simple and effective charging solution for electric vehicles. A strong magnetic field, generated by a car and the ground can present certain safety risks, should a person or animal enter the field.

New Invention: 3D Laser Spectrometer

A novel technology using spectroscopy to capture multiple two-dimensional spectral images from a single capture with higher light throughput. The 3D laser spectrometer design is built upon the concept from an emerging field of compressed sensing to make it possible to retrieve 3D spectral information from a screen/camera. In contrast to ordinary spectrometers, the 3D spectrometer uses a wide slit instead of a narrow slit, thus producing a higher throughput of the light and yield higher signal-to-noise ratio.

Industry

The UK Space Sector is growing rapidly with a target to reach £30Bn p.a. by 2030, with much of this driven by a revolution in small satellites and the increased ability to process, transmit and analyse data. Evolving developments in Earth Observation, solar system exploration, and UK launch facilities contribute to an exciting future in space research and innovation. Oxford University has world-leading research activities in a number of key areas relevant to these opportunities, and is geographically well-placed to engage with the emerging Space Cluster at Harwell.

Industrial Projects with Oxford Physics Students

We are now seeking industrial partners with problems to solve for the academic year 2018/19. This is an opportunity for your company to get some external input from enthusiastic and intelligent Oxford Physics undergraduates. In return, our students learn how their physics training can be applied in industry.
