EC Jetting: Towards the Next Generation of Printing Technologies

Funding source: EPSRC Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council
Start: 15-01-2022  /  End: 14-01-2024
Amount: £296,834

Small nozzles, which are used to deposit small volume of liquids, are more prone to clogging and breaking and more difficult to manufacture. This project aims to develop a novel technique to produce jets that are 100 times smaller than the nozzle in size (no need for small nozzles) and printing frequency that is one order of magnitude higher than the natural electrojetting pulsation technique (fast printing).

Novel capsule based smell test for the assessment of hyposmia/anosmia

Funding source: EPSRC IAA & STFC IAA
Start: 01-12-2020  /  End: 31-12-2021
Amount: £9,000

This project is to develop a cheap, scalable and rapid smell test for the assessment of hyposmia/anosmia including COVID19 related symptom in humans. The prototype test consists of a standardized number of aromatic oils capsules fabricated by coaxial dripping and placed between adhesive strips that users crush and pull apart to release the smell.
