Short pulse laser material interactions for large area electronics / medical devices
Project Description: Understanding laser-matter-ambient-interactions is important to realise the potential of high repetition rate, multi-kiloWatt, femtosecond and picosecond laser technologies in scalable production. The fabrication of integrated multifunctional thin film devices by additive (inkjet, spray) and subtractive (laser) manufacturing on Roll to Roll (R2R) production platforms is also suddenly possible and desperately needed to realise new cost effective manufacturing solutions.
Enquiries from potential PhD students are sought to develop new understanding of short pulse laser matter interactions relevant to very thin films and R2R manufacturing platforms. A particular focus will be the development of on-line tools which will create new process monitoring tools for cost effective production based on new nano-inspired materials relevant to flexible large area electronics and medical devices.
