(Discovery Early Career Researcher Award)
Brief description High-Performance Monolithic Sensor Technology for Corrosive Environments. Based on my recent discovery on giant thermo-/piezo-resistance, this project aims to enhance fundamental understanding and enable the development of high performance silicon carbide based sensors. The project employs these knowledge advancements to develop new sensors with a sensitivity of thousand-fold larger than that of conventional sensors. The project develops multiple sensors and light harvesting cells to be integrated into a monolithic platform that can function in corrosive environments. The sensor technology can be utilised for monitoring structural health, reducing failure and extending lifetime of structures, providing cutting-edge knowledge to petrochemical and mining industries which are of particular importance to Australia.
