Smart sensors

With the growing demand for sensors, there is a need for the development of Smart Materials that are efficient and safe for a variety of sensing applications. These Smart Materials can be synthesised using a variety of novel fabrication and characterization techniques. Sensor devices that collect data from their surroundings and use embedded microprocessors and wireless communication to monitor, analyse, and maintain various systems. They can collect environmental data more accurately and with less erroneous noise. Though they are used for a wide range of purposes, they are most commonly found in monitoring mechanisms such as smart grids, science applications, and security systems. Magnetism could be extracted from these novel Smart Materials, particularly graphene. 

Potential topics include, but are not limited to 

  • Biomedical 
  • Chipless RFID sensors 
  • Food safety
