Subject of doctoral thesis
Plastronic Innovation :
Elaboration of wireless communicating functions by printing of functional inks during 3D manufacturing of plastic housing.
* Materials: Rheology of complex fluids, surfaces and interfaces physico-chemistry, deposit processes, electromagnetic properties, plastic materials converting
* Communication systems: Circuits for wireless communications, sensors, electromagnetism, multi-physic modeling, electromagnetic modeling.
This thesis work is a part of an industrial chair funded for five years by the Grenoble INP foundation. This ambitious project aims to explore the new technologies sustainable and low cost of printing and of functional inks for the design of wireless communication functions in 3-dimensions inside plastic housings (electrical boxes, switches…).
The project partners are two laboratories of University Grenoble Alpes, as well as the international Schneider Electric society, specialist of energy management.
The expected work is multidisciplinary, involving knowledge in material rheology, surfaces and interfaces physico-chemistry allowing the elaboration, by printing processes, of wireless communication systems of a new generation, from their design to their modeling.
PROFILE OF THE APPLICANT :
Preferentially with a training in applied physics, the applicant will have to deal with aspects concerning both materials (rheology, physico-chemistry, …), communication systems, but also electromagnetics and multi-physic modeling. He will have to show a great curiosity and be able to build a large basis of knowledge, with the help of the whole skills constituted by Schneider Electric and the two world-renowned laboratories of Grenoble.
Due to the ambitious proposed subject, the PhD student will present his results in the major international conferences and will publish in the major journals of the explored domains.
