ERA is a digital repository of original research produced at The University of Edinburgh. The archive contains documents written by, or affiliated with, academic authors, or units, based at Edinburgh that have sufficient quality to be collected and preserved by the Library, but which are not controlled by commercial publishers. Holdings include full-text digital doctoral theses, masters dissertations, project reports, briefing papers and out-of-print materials.

Information on current research activity including staff, projects and publications is available via the Edinburgh Research Explorer.


  • Luminescence-based optical sensors towards in vivo analysis 

    Mohamad, Mohd Fuad Bin (The University of Edinburgh, 2018-07-09)
    Continuous monitoring of physiological parameters such as pH and oxygen (O2) are of great importance in determining the health status of a patient. Arterial blood gas analysis is a current clinical method used to measure ...
  • Modelling and optimisation of energy systems with thermal energy storage 

    Renaldi, Renaldi (The University of Edinburgh, 2018-07-04)
    One of the main challenges in the implementation of renewable energy is the mismatch between supply and demand. Energy storage has been identified as one of the solutions to the mismatch problem. Among various storage ...
  • Machine learning-based dexterous control of hand prostheses 

    Krasoulis, Agamemnon (The University of Edinburgh, 2018-07-02)
    Upper-limb myoelectric prostheses are controlled by muscle activity information recorded on the skin surface using electromyography (EMG). Intuitive prosthetic control can be achieved by deploying statistical and machine ...
