Development of Novel Transducers


Project Description

Microtechnology and Nanotechnology are rapidly growing fields that provide means for realizing transducer concepts with new capabilities and attractive performance features. Driven by new material developments, fabrication processes or applications, we develop a wide range of novel sensors and actuators, i.e. transducers, for which we invite internship student to contribute. Our work includes multi-functional sensors; remotely activated drug delivery; magnetic nanowires for cancer treatment, artificial skins or active cell substrates; flexible graphene sensors for harsh environment applications, flexible magnets for marine monitoring or smart biomedical instruments. These new devices provide properties like ultra-low power consumption, minimal size, high performance or flexibility, which are needed for trends like smart living, advanced robots, smart surgeries, IoT, or wearable devices. ​​​

Jürgen Kosel

Associate Professor (Adjunct), Electrical and Computer Engineering<br/>Head of Sensing Magnetism and Microsystems Group

Jürgen Kosel
​Professor Kosel’s research interests are in the field of micro- and nano devices with special emphasis on magnetic effects.

Desired Project Deliverables

​The internship student will work closely with a student or postdoc mentor and will be under supervision by Prof. Kosel. During the weekly meetings, the student will present and discuss the work done. At the end of the internship, the student will prepare a project report. If the student is involved in the development of fabrication processes, he/she will prepare a description of this process, in line with similar work done in the group.
