Summary on Grant Application Form
This is a request for funding to support an eight months visit to the Institute for Materials Research at the University of Leeds by Professor Manoj Gupta of National University of Singapore. Professor Gupta (Visiting Fellow) has research interest in microwave processing of metal-ceramic composites for advanced technological applications whereas Dr. Kale (Host) has research interest in ceramic materials used for the development of gas sensors. The complementary research expertise of Prof. Gupta and Dr. Kale will enable us to focus on the application of microwave processing technique to sensor materials during the 8 months visit of Prof. Gupta to IMR, Leeds. Leeds does not have any research activity in the area of microwave processing of ceramic materials and the area of research will not only benefit Dr. Kale's research group but also other research groups such as the Electroceramic and Photoinic materials research group at IMR, Leeds. Hence the three main aims of the Visiting Fellowship are (1) for CeraAs research group at Leeds to benefit from the expertise of Prof. Gupta in the microwave processing of functional ceramic materials especially for sensors and actuators applications, (2) for Prof. Gupta to become familiar with the experimental setup and procedures involved in electrical characterisation of materials using ac- and dc- technique and, sensor fabrication and testing procedures and (3) to establish the foundation for future more formal and longer term collaboration between the University of Leeds and National University of Singapore.
