Particle Aerosol Deposition for the Manufacture of Next Generation Electroceramics


Project Description

With the support of a multidisciplinary research team funded by the UK Research Council, working with industry you will conduct innovative research into coating techniques based on particle aerosol deposition. The project bridges engineering, manufacturing and materials science disciplines. In collaboration with industrial partners you will develop improved cold consolidation manufacturing routes for electroceramic thick films with the aim of demonstrating properties outperforming those made using conventional techniques. The product electronic devices have applications in emerging renewable energy and power electronics sectors. You will develop skills in particle synthesis, particle aerosol generation, fluid dynamics, structural analysis, interfacial science and a range of electrical testing techniques.
