AbstractIn the last decade, we have seen a growing research interest and activities in the emerging field of Visible Light Communications for indoor and outdoor applications. White light emitting diodes are highly energy efficient light sources compared to the traditional light sources offering additional features such as data communications, localization and sensing. This talk will give an overview of why the need for VLC based wireless technologies; discuss the main features of VLC, type of light sources, applications and key challenges facing this green technology. The talk will also cover the recent research and development in the field, which is being carried out with the Optical Communications Research Group at Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK.

Biography of the author

Professor Ghassemlooy received his BSc (Hons) degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the Manchester Metropolitan University in 1981, and his MSc and PhD in Optical Communications from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), in 1984 and 1987, respectively with Scholarships from the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, UK. From 1986-87 worked in UMIST and from 1987 to 1988 was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the City University, London.

In 1988 he joined Sheffield Hallam University as a Lecturer, becoming a Reader in 1995 and a Professor in Optical Communications in 1997. From 2004 until 2012, was an Associate Dean for Research in the School of Computing, Engineering and Information Sciences and in 2012 he became Associate Dean for Research and Innovation in the Faculty of Engineering and Environment, at Northumbria University at Newcastle, UK. He also heads the Northumbria Communications Research Laboratories within the Faculty.
In 2001 he was a recipient of the Tan Chin Tuan Fellowship in Engineering from the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore to work on the photonic technology. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Optics and Applications, The Mediterranean Journal Electronics and Communications and currently serves on the Editorial Committees of number international journals. He is the founder and the Chairman of the IEEE, IET International Symposium on Communication Systems, Network and Digital Signal Processing.
Professor Ghassemlooy's research interests are on photonics switching, optical wireless, wired communications, visible light communications and mobile communications, radio over fibre in collaboration with many institutions including, USA, France, Austria, Germany, Hong Kong, China, Iran, Czech  Republic, Iran, Taiwan, S Korea etc. 
He has supervised a large number of PhD students (more than 40) and have published over 440 papers (156 in journals + 11 book chapters) and presented many keynote and invited talks. I am a co-author of a CRC book on “Optical Wireless Communications – Systems and Channel Modelling with Matlab (2012); a co-editor of an IET book on “Analogue Optical Fibre Communications”. From 2004-06 I was the IEEE UK/IR Communications Chapter Secretary, the Vice-Chairman (2004-2008), the Chairman (2008-2011), and Chairman of the IET Northumbria Network (Oct 2011-)
