Gas sensing

Alphasense

Gas sensing covers a wide range of applications, ranging from environmental pollution monitoring to the detection of dangerous levels of hazardous gases in industrial settings. Each application has different sensor requirements with respect to accuracy, detection limit, resolution, size and cost - to name but a few.

Alphasense has a strong link with the Chemistry Department at Cambridge University where its sensors have been integrated in fixed and mobile sensor networks to monitor air quality at unprecedented spatial resolution.

In collaboration with Alphasense, the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications is inviting applications for a fully funded 4-year PhD studentship commencing in October 2015 to work on a a project addressing 'Innovative gas sensing technologies and applications'. The student will have the possibility to define the project together with Alphasense and academic supervisors, e.g. from the Chemistry Department or the Computer Lab.
