Project Description. Ever larger quantities of sensors, microcontrollers and data transmitters are installed in buildings and machinery, supplying data and information that is key for a wide range of applications, such as healthcare, energy and transport to name but a few.
  Production of two-dimensional materials with multiphase flows
  Dr J Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional (2D) materials have received significant scientific attention due to their exceptional properties. The most well-known of this class of nanomaterial is graphene, however, there are numerous 2D materials which have the potential to transform existing and future technologies across a wide range of sectors.
  Self-lifting air bearings
  Prof K Jiang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type
