The research group GI-1893, Systems Laboratory, is a research group currently assigned to the Institute of Technological Research (IIT) of the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC).
The researchers of the group belong to the areas of knowledge of Applied Physics and languages and computer systems. The origins of the group are in the group of applied biophysics created by Prof. Carlos Hernández in the Faculty of Physics in the 80s of the last century. From the research lines in Biomedical Engineering and Remote Sensing, he expanded and developed his lines of research in: graphic computing, supervision and control system, location-based services, geographic information systems, materials physics with his affiliation to the IIT.
Over the last 25 years, our group has had additions and losses that have impacted its structure and research activity. The most important were: a) the incorporation of researchers with an excellent level and experience in basic research in the study of the properties of nanoscale materials; b) the dismissal of the group of researchers who opted for the newly created Information Technology Research Center at USC.
Currently, the GI-1893 group performs basic and applied research in materials, remote sensing and climate change, energy and energy efficiency fundamentally.
Some of these lines of research have been maintained for 25 years.
Our Group conducts its research at the IIT and currently consists of 9 staff professors, 1 "ad honorem" professor, 4 contracted researchers and 2 doctoral students. Throughout their professional career the members of the group have made numerous publications, participated in projects and contracts.
