Your Background


Your Skills

Your Profile:

  • Master or Doctoral student from materials science, nanotechnology, physics, chemistry, or related with both theoretical and experimental skills.
  • You have good communication skills in English
  • Independent but also a team player


Project Description

The Holst Centre is developing printable temperature sensors together with industry. Working in a small team, the student will be responsible for establishing a process method for a new class of printed temperature sensor. The student will be responsible for optimizing material compositions towards suitable electrical properties for preliminary applications. Rigorous electrical and material characterization will be crucial throughout the project.


This student project will be an internship and/or master thesis with a duration of at least 6 months.


The goal of the project will be to:

  • To develop a screen-printable temperature sensor that can be processed on plastic foils
  • Optimize the performance of the ink by evaluating conductive fillers, polymer binders, etc.
  • Measure the electronic and physical properties of the printed diode
  • Support with the integration of the printed diodes with Holst Centre's other technologies


Your Tasks

As a team member your tasks will be:

  • Knowledge acquisition through literature survey, discussion with other team members, and internal seminars/colloquiums
  • Performing electrical and material characterization
  • Performing experiments in clean-rooms and chemical labs
  • Analysis and presentation of experimental data
  • Documentation of results in a technical report
  • Presentation of results in internal seminars/colloquiums
