Human-centric lighting should benefit users, but the practicality of this is no clear-cut process. Light affects human health and wellbeing in many ways, and needs and preferences vary.
Early stage detection is critical to halting the rise in cardiovascular diseases. Within MEDICAID (Medtech solutions for Earlier DetectIon of CArdIovascular Disease), ten PhD students and one postdoc are therefore working on unobtrusive sensing, monitoring and data analysis for earlier recognition and improved treatment.
Advanced piezo-electric wafer stage
This project ‘Advanced piezo-electric wafer stage for next generation lithography and metrology application’ aims to demonstrate feasibility of an ultra-short stroke stage using light-weight and compact piezo-electric actuators instead of current electromagnetic actuators.
