Development of THz microfluidic devices using 3D printing for the characterization of proteins
During the project, the master student will work on:
- Design microfluidic devices using CAD
- Comsol simulations
- Raman Spectroscopy for the characterization of graphene
- THz time-domain spectroscopy for measuring samples
- Matlab/python for analyzing data
Interested candidates can send an email with their CV with a short motivation letter to Dr. Elena Mavrona (firstname.lastname@example.org); also, they can conduct her if they need further information.
