Summary on Grant Application Form
The proposed research consists of 9 distinct work-packages in 4 different subject areas, which we share the mutual requirements of sub-micron patterning, mocro-fabrication and rapid experimental feedback. The work based in the school of E&EE, will focus on producing combinations of components for the efficient and inexpensive generation and detection of broadband harmonic power from 100GHz to 10THz. This area is of fundamental scientific interest since it spans the photonic and electronic behavioural domains, and where there is a lack of inexpensive transducers at present. The potential applications include determining the water content of biological tissue, and in medicine, dentistry and foodstuff packaging Two other programmes involving the departments of Chemistry and Physics, will focus on the physics and chemistry of organic and biologically active, lipid bilayers and surfaces. Work will concentrate on the fabrication, manipulation and characterisation of such structures to improve the understanding and control of the fundamental physics and chemistry.Potential applicaitons include bio-electronics sensors and biologically active surfaces. finally, the work based in the department of Materials will focus on the direct paterning of novel electronically active thin film materials and should permit the formation of 3-D structures with unique electrical properties.
