The following available PhD projects are related to C-FLEET research activities and will be supervised by one or more C-FLEET member.
Neuromorphic computing using porous flexible thin film
Solution-based processing methods have offered significant advantages for resistive switching memory including high versatility and flexibility, large area uniformity, low-cost and simple fabrication. The project will develop a mesoporous SiO2 based resistive switching device from a solution-based process on flexible substrates and investigate its application for future data storage and neuromorphic computing. For further details please contact Dr Ruomeng Huang.
Flexible RF projects
The following projects involve developing flexible RF related systems for specific applications, materials for improved RF performance or to address issues of sustainability. For further details please contact Dr Mahmoud Wagih.
E-Textiles Devices and Systems Development
We have a significant research activity supporting electronic textiles technologies and have a large number of PhD projects available. The following are examples, please contact Prof Steve Beeby for more details and to discuss other opportunities.
Sustainable E-Textiles Activities
Sustainability is an important issue and at present e-textiles exist outside the WEEE regulation that governs the disposal of standard electronics. Dr Russel Torah is leading research ensuring e-textiles research remain responsible and sustainability is considered as part of our activities. Example projects include:
