The Sensor Technology Research Centre covers fundamentals of electric and magnetic sensor technologies, wearable and embedded systems, flexible and stretchable electronics, mobile and wireless communication and networks, extreme environment detectors.
The Sensor Technology Research Centre (STRC) is a world-leading centre comprising the following 5 research groups:
- Fundamentals of electric and magnetic sensor technologies
- Wearable and embedded technologies
- Flexible and stretchable electronics
- Communications research group
- Semiconductor Materials and Devices Laboratory
The synergies and tight links between the research groups allow us to consistently advance research projects beyond the state of the art and address application-oriented demands from industry and third parties.
The application domains covered by our research are broad and cover, among others: remote sensing, forensics, communication, healthcare, rehabilitation, smart assistance, energy, extreme environment sensing, wearable and implantable electronics.
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.
