Welcome to the homepage of the Wireless Communications Laboratory at Queen's University Belfast. The Laboratory is situated in the Institute of Electronics, Communications and IT (ECIT) in the Northern Ireland Science Park and is led by Dr Simon Cotton (Reader in Wireless Communications). We conduct research spanning from physical layer aspects of wireless communications systems through to novel applications of wireless technology. Our research is underpinned by a thorough understanding of the wireless communications channel for these applications, obtained through extensive experimentation and simulation.
