PORTALE DELLA DIDATTICA

Ricerca CERCA
  KEYWORD

Fabrication of highly flexible devices as tactile sensors and pressure sensors based on hydrogels from natural sources

keywords HYDROGELS, POLYMERS, SENSORS

Reference persons VALENTINA ALICE CAUDA, STEFANO STASSI

Research Groups AA - Materials and Processes for Micro and Nano Technologies

Thesis type EXPERIMENTAL

Description The thesis foresees the fabrication of devices based on piezoelectric, capacitive, čiezoresistive or triboelectric effects for the detection of mechanical stresses of compression or defomation. The final purpose is to obtain tactile sensors based on hydrogels derived from natural sources. A broad part will be dedicated to device testing and analysis of performace, as well as integration in a final device. Final applications go from humanoid robots to fabrication of biomechanical supports for a patient rehabilitation and prosthesis.

Required skills Physics 1 and 2
optional: materials sceince and technology, mechanics and electornics fundamentals
