Prof Cees Bastiaansen
BSc, PhD

Visiting Professor of Materials

Cees Bastiaansen is part-time professor with the Materials Division. His research centers around the processing and structure-property relationships of polymers - with an emphasis on aligned, oriented systems, their functional properties and devices. His current research is mainly in polymers for sensors, actuators, smart windows and high performance composites. Cees collaborates with a large number of industrial partners through various multi-partner projects, including a number of EU, UK and NL government funded projects. Cees has been active in polymers in an industrial and an academic environment for over 30 years. He is the author or co-author of more than 300 peer reviewed …

Dr Carpi

Dr Federico Carpi
PhD

Visiting Professor in Biomedical Engineering and Biomaterials

The main research focus is on biomedical & bioinspired mechatronic devices made of soft smart materials. Core activities deal with the development of innovative devices based on electromechanically active polymer transducers (EAPs) and, in particular, dielectric elastomer (DE) transducers. DE actuators exhibit a mechanical response to an electrical stimulus, while offering, at the same time, light weight, mechanical compliance, compact size, simple structure, low power consumption, acoustically silent operation, and low cost. We study DE transducers as 'artificial muscle materials' for new electromechanical transduction technologies to enable applications not feasible or even imaginable with other technologies.
