Abstract: The talk will describe a new system developed to save spectral efficiency in wireless and optical systems and named Spectrally Efficient FDM. A description of the work can be found in the two papers below
Biography: Izzat Darwazeh currently holds the University of London Chair of Communications Engineering and leads the 70-strong Communications and Information Systems Group of the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London (UCL) in the U.K. He is a graduate of the University of Jordan (Electrical Engineering - 1984) and has obtained the MSc (1986) and a PhD (1991) degrees from the University of Manchester in the UK.
He has authored or coauthored more than 250 papers in the areas of optical and wireless communications and monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) and high-speed/frequency circuits. He coedited Analogue Optical Fibre Communications (IEE, 1995) and was a co-editor and of the 2008 Elsevier-Newness book on Electrical Engineering. He is also the co-author of two books; the 2005 book on Linear Circuit Analysis and Modelling (Elsevier) and of the 2015 book on Microwave Active Circuit Analysis and Design (Academic Press). He currently teaches mobile and wireless communications and circuit design and his current research activities are in ultra high-speed microwave circuits and in wireless and optical communication systems. In 2003 he proposed (with Miguel Rodrigues) the Spectrally Efficient FDM (SEFDM) concept and has been working in this topic since then. In addition to teaching and research, Professor Darwazeh acted as an assessor of various national and international projects and he acts a consultant to various engineering firms and government, financial and legal entities in the UK and overseas..
