Micro and nano- electrostatic array sensors will be developed with embedded electronics that will allow far better spatial and temporal resolution of tribological contact decay (surface and lubricant) in machines.
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD studentship to commence in October 2019. This fully-funded studentship is supported as part of the University of Portsmouth’s investment to grow its newly developed Centre for Enzyme innovation.
This project is in the area of monitoring the performance of contacting surfaces within components of heavy machines using novel sensing systems (electrostatic sensor arrays ESA) and advanced machine learning techniques.
Start date. October 2019. Duration. 3.5 yrs. Background. Digital cameras and active-matrix displays are powerful examples of how arrays of optical receivers and emitters can have transformative impact.
