The Sensor Technology Research Centre is a world leading centre focusing on electric and magnetic sensor technologies and their applications.
The Centre has pioneered a new class of device with generic measurement capability, the Electric Potential Sensor (EPS). This has attracted considerable attention recently, winning a number of prestigious awards and gaining wide publicity in the technical press. The first generation of EPS has been licensed to our industrial partners and is now being marketed as an integrated circuit device. Our research activity includes the fundamentals of sensor operation, modelling of measurement scenarios and application specific projects. These applications are very broad, ranging from electrophysiological monitoring to security, forensics and materials characterisation for the semiconductor industry.
