Technology articles

The CEOI has released a new article which describes the work carried out by Queens University Belfast in the development of liquid crystals and frequency selective surfaces, which can be used in a wide range of applications, including meterological sounders for global weather forecasting, microwave absorbers to reduce radar signature and enhanced transmission of microwave signals through energy saver glass. The article is available here.


The CEOI-ST has published a range of articles about the projects funded by the Centre.  Find out more about the technologies and their use in space and terrestrial applications:
