Project Description

Novel nano-fabrication routes are required for future IoT applications to enable mass production of printable components and systems, with nanometre resolution on flexible substrates. This project involves the integration of electronic circuits with low energy communication interfaces, energy harvesting with storage modules, sensors and actuators in a single platform.

The project involves
• Development of a process capability for printable components and systems
• Development of novel emerging materials: graphene, CNT, silver nanowires, ZnO, quantum dots
• Demonstration of unified design, manufacture and integration approaches for sensors/actuators, energy capture and control,
communication, in a single platform

This is a 4 year project, commencing in October 2019.

Entry requirements:
All applicants should have (or expect to obtain) a first class or First-class degree or distinction in a relevant subject. Non-native speakers of English will be required to have IELTS 6.5 or above (or equivalent).
