Nano-manufacture of multifunctional IoT based devices
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.
Start date1 July 2019
Funding sourceEPSRC iCASE award
A competition funded project available to European and UK students only covering university (home fees) for four years.
Stipend: £18,000 per annual for four years.
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 etc.
- Demonstration of unified design, manufacture and integration approaches for sensors/actuators, energy capture and control, communication, in a single platform.
This project is suitable for students with an interest in electronic engineering or physics.
A first class or distinction in a relevant discipline such as physics or electronic engineering is required.
If English is not your first language, you will be required to have an IELTS Academic of 6.5 or above (or equivalent) with 6.0 in each individual category.
