About the Project

The School of Engineering at University of Glasgow is seeking a

motivated graduate for the 3.5-year

PhD project “Next Generation Energy Autonomous Textile Triboelectric Nanogenerators


TENGs allow for efficient energy

generation simply from the repeated contact of suitable surfaces. However, the

performance of wearable textile

TENGs has lagged significantly behind. If output can be increased enough, the

prospects are hugely exciting: a host of medical & fitness electronic

devices could be powered autonomously without need for heavy batteries. The

project will develop fundamental understanding of the

triboelectric behaviour of textile interfaces and combine this with advanced fabrication

& materials processing solutions to design highly optimised textile TENGs

with greatly enhanced output performance. The project is flexible enough

to focus on either mechanical or electrical aspects.

Eligibility: Min 2.1 undergraduate degree in engineering, physics, materials, chemistry etc. or a cognate

This application is to gain admission to our PGR programme. An

offer of admission may be issued before a decision on the Scholarship is

made. Candidates applying for this Scholarship will most likely have an

interview/discussion with the supervisor before any decision is made.

Funding Notes

The studentship is supported by EPSRC, and it will cover home or international tuition fees and provide a stipend at the UKRI rate for 3.5 years (£15,285 for session 2020/21).
