Twinning Partner - SCAMMD
Sheffield Centre for Advanced Magnetic Materials and Devices within the Department of Engineering Materials, University of Sheffield, UK (SCAMMD)
SCAMMD will provide training in the design of magnetostrictive materials for sensors, actuators and transducers. Technological development of acoustic microsensors for medical applications will be done at SCAMMD with the participation of NIRDTP scientists. Through the twinning action, NIRDTP will gain access to SCAMMD’s transmission electron microscopy equipment and to their magnetometers and will develop scientific knowledge and skills on how to design and characterize magnetostrictive materials for sensors, actuators and transducers based on magnetostrictive nanowires.
