MPE-lab is a part of Halmstad Embedded and Intelligent Systems Research - EIS.
The research within this lab is conducted in the following areas:
Applied Mathematics - Computational Science and Engineering
For the moment the professorship in Applied Mathematics is vacant. We are now recruiting a new professor.
Project leader: associate professor Bertil Nilsson
The research within this group is focused on the numerical simulation of mathematical models based on linear and non-linear partial diferential equations, using modern finite element techniques. Besides developing numerical methods we also develop the underlying continuum models.
For the moment we focus in particular on the following research projects:
The professorship in applied electronics vacant. We are now recruting a new professor.
The research is focused on applied electronics used in low power wireless and sensors. We develop electronics for wireless transceivers in sensor networks, and electromagnetic probes for remote sensing (radar).
A very high degree of integration is required, and low cost materials must be used, to enable large scale deployment. Semiconductor technology integration is mainly driven by the demands from the digital domain. Analogue and high frequency designers have to adapt to the given prerequisites from developed processes. Electric properties for low cost materials are often poor at high frequency and are plagued with large variations. This is very challenging for the system designer and requires new and innovative solutions.
Mathematical Statistics applied to Cryptology
Project leader: dr. Eric Järpe
The research in this project is mainly about methods to detect suspiciously encrypted code in large text masses. This is necessary when malicious code, which may be material of evidence in criminal investigations, is encrypted according to the cutting edge standards offering no explicit methods to break the code. Thus one has to rely on brute force methods to find the encryption key and here is where time becomes an important issue. Therefore methods to single out the more likely encrypted pieces of code is essential in such cases. Also procedures and algorithms for digital authentication are derived and evaluated. Another interesting question which is addressed is how to go about to find and encryption key which has been stored in the volitile memory of laptops, smartphones etc.
Physics of Nanoscale Devices
Project leader: professor Håkan Pettersson
The research is focused on electrical, optical and magnetic properties of nanoscale devices.
At present five research projects are pursued.
