Dielectric measurements with a 3D printer

   Department of Electronic Engineering

About the Project

The dielectric properties of an object – its permittivity and conductivity – give us useful information about it in fields ranging from non-destructive testing to body composition studies. In this project you will extend the resonant cavity perturbation technique so that we can make dielectric measurements on fragile, irregularly-shaped objects such as archaeological artefacts. To do this you will create replicas of the objects by means of a 3D printer, in order to calibrate the system. The research will involve practical radio-frequency measurements combined with computational simulations.

Entry requirements:
Candidates should have (or expect to obtain) a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2.1) or equivalent in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Music Technology or a closely related subject.

How to apply:
Applicants should apply via the University’s online application system at https://www.york.ac.uk/study/postgraduate-research/apply/. Please read the application guidance first so that you understand the various steps in the application process.

Funding Notes

This is a self-funded project and you will need to have sufficient funds in place (eg from scholarships, personal funds and/or other sources) to cover the tuition fees and living expenses for the duration of the research degree programme.
