Cost-effective temperature adaptive Cu-based shape memory alloys (Advert Ref: FAC17-R/MCE/GONZALES SANCHEZ)

Cost-effective temperature adaptive Cu-based shape memory alloys (Advert Ref: FAC17-R/MCE/GONZALES SANCHEZ)

Project Description

The ultimate goal is to investigate the effect of microalloying and cooling rate control on the thermomechanical and tribological performance of novel Cu-based shape memory alloys obtained by rapid solidification. This knowledge will enable the development of cost-effective temperature adaptive micro shaft seals for microactuator applications with improved sealing effect over a wide temperature range and with optimum friction and wear. It will enable industrial manufacturers to substitute the frequently used expensive NiTi (nitiol) alloy by Cu-based alloy containing low cost elements and I will explore this in the project in collaboration with companies from the oil/gas and precision engineering sectors.

Eligibility and How to Apply:
Please note eligibility requirement:
• Academic excellence of the proposed student i.e. 2:1 (or equivalent GPA from non-UK universities [preference for 1st class honours]); or a Masters (preference for Merit or above); or APEL evidence of substantial practitioner achievement.

Autonomous Implantable Sensors/Actuators Using MEMS and CMOS platforms

Autonomous Implantable Sensors/Actuators Using MEMS and CMOS platforms

  • Sunday, December 17, 2017
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

The research on modern sensing devices necessitates interdisciplinary expertise in readout circuit and transducer device design. Power autonomy is among the challenging specifications of the new generation of sensors. Supplying power from alternative energy sources in the sensing environment is as important as lowering the power consumption in conditioning circuits. The focus of our research is mostly on biomedical instrument applications. For example autonomous implant transducers is the top priority of our research that translates to integrated energy harvesting and sensing/actuating device for bio applications. In this project we pursue new techniques in Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) for the transducer design as well as low power, high efficiency conditioning CMOS circuits. In our research group we investigate innovative approaches to integrate the sensing and energy harvesting circuits and transducers on the same platform. We target MEMS for the device part and CMOS technologies for the circuit part. Both technologies are accessible through a fabless approach, wherein we design circuits and devices in industry level CAD tools such as Cadence for integrated circuits and Coventorware for MEMS. After confirming the simulation results with expected analysis, we submit the design files for fabrication in external foundries such as UMC, and MEMSCap. Characterisation and measurement of the chips are carried out in our labs in the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Some alterations on the chips built in external foundries is possible through access to in-house cleanroom at David Bullett Nanofabrication Facility (http://www.bath.ac.uk/facilities/nanofab/) and Centre for Advanced Sensor Technology (http://www.bath.ac.uk/elec-eng/research/cast/).

The main aim of this strategy is to let our researchers spend their times on testing their design ideas on a reliable platform and in a timely manner, which prepares them for being involved in cutting edge industries without the need for long term trainings.

Centre for Advanced Sensor Technologies is accessible for PhD students at the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, which is highly equipped with characterisation instruments. PhD students enjoy spending a great portion of their time in the lab.

In addition to students with first degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, applicants with Mechanical Engineering background and interested in MEMS design are also encouraged to apply for this position.

Funding Notes

A Home/EU award will provide full tuition fees, an annual Training Support Fee of £1,000, and a tax-free maintenance payment of £14,553 (2017-8 rate) for up to 3.5 years.

An Overseas award (3 years): Provides tuition fee, an annual Training Support Fee of £1,000, but no stipend.

The successful applicant will ideally have graduated (or be due to graduate) with an undergraduate Masters first class degree and/or MSc distinction (or overseas equivalent).

English language requirements must be met at the time of application to be considered for funding.

PhD in Applied Physics at the University of South Florida: Fundamental Studies of Glassy Polymer Mechanics

PhD in Applied Physics at the University of South Florida: Fundamental Studies of Glassy Polymer Mechanics

  • Wednesday, October 18, 2017
  • Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
 Physics, University of South Florida

Project Description

Funding is available for a student to advance our understanding of glassy polymer mechanics via a coordinated program of molecular simulations and analytic theory,

About my approach to science: I am a soft matter physicist first. Many mechanical, dynamical and structural properties of materials remain poorly understood for reasons independent of system-specific chemistry. Great advances in understanding these properties can be achieved through coarse-grained and multiscale simulations that are computationally efficient enough to access experimentally accessible spatiotemporal scales yet «chemically» realistic enough to capture the essential physics underlying the properties under study. I have and will continue to concentrate on explaining poorly-understood behaviors of polymeric, colloidal, and nanocomposite systems through coarse-grained modeling and concomitant development of analytic theories. The general theme is to do basic research on topics that are of high practical interest. See http://labs.cas.usf.edu/softmattertheory/ for more information.

About the project: The available PhD project is a coherent program of simulations and analytic modeling that will significantly enhance the scientific community’s basic physical understanding of how the mechanical properties of polymer glasses relate to their microscopic interactions and mesoscale order. Simulations will systematically relate differences in mechanical response to differences in micro- and meso-structure by varying local chain stiffness, sample preparation protocol, temperature, and deformation history. Systems will be deformed to fracture to determine how these factors influence ultimate mechanical properties (e.g. ductility and toughness). The relatively low computational cost of the coarse-grained approach will be exploited to explore relevant parameter spaces far more broadly than is feasible for chemically detailed models. Analytic work will both complement the simulations and extend recently developed microphysics-based theories of polymer mechanics, through an iterative process wherein simulation uncovers problems with theories, the theories are improved as needed, and then used to make new predictions that will be tested by carefully designed followup simulations. This combined approach is designed to contribute maximally to the community’s long term goal of obtaining a level of physical understanding sufficient to develop predictive design principles for materials with tailorable mechanical response. Progress towards this goal will facilitate development of strong, lightweight structural plastics that can be used in applications ranging from automobiles to armaments, thus contributing to the growth of the $350+ billion dollar plastics industry. Note that the project will also provide the student broad training in soft condensed matter physics and computational science that will be applicable to a wide range of systems (not just polymers.)

How to apply: Please see the USF Physics website: http://physics.usf.edu/graduate/ for application instructions. The application deadline is February 1, 2018 for admission in Fall 2018. Also, please contact the PI via email at if you have any questions about this position or the program more generally.

Funding Notes

PhD students in our program generally spend the first year taking courses and serving as teaching assistants. They join research groups the summer after the first academic year and then are funded as research assistants (if funding is available, as it is for this project.)
