Inkjet Printing of Flexible Devices for Medical Diagnosis or Energy Storage


Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering

Applications accepted all year round Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

Flexible devices such as microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPADs), or flexible electronic devices have recently received significant attentions as potential platforms for low-cost diagnostic assays or wearable electronics. This PhD project is to use reactive inkjet printing to fabricate flexible devices for different applications such as cancer diagnostics or energy storage etc. The student will be trained to use modern techniques such as inkjet printing, AFM, SEM, TEM, interferometry, FTIR etc. to fabricate and characterize the devices. A combination of relevant experiments such as biological assays or electrochemical tests will also be carried out to evaluate the functions of the fabricated devices.
