About the Project

Flexible or wearable electronic devices have recently received significant attentions as potential platforms for low-cost diagnostics or wearable sensors. This PhD project is to use reactive inkjet printing to fabricate flexible devices for different applications such as cancer diagnostics, health monitoring or energy storage etc. The student will be trained to use relevant chemical methods and modern techniques such as inkjet printing, SEM, Interferometry, FTIR, Raman spectroscopy, XPS, XRD etc. to fabricate and characterize the devices. A combination of relevant experiments such as biological or chemical assays or electrochemical tests will also be carried out to evaluate the functions of the fabricated devices.

Please see this link for information on how to apply: Please include the name of your proposed supervisor and the title of the PhD project within your application.

Candidates should have a 1st class or 2.1 degree or MSc (merit or distinction) in physics, chemistry, materials, electronic engineering, chemical engineering, or a related discipline.
