(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoc in SuperGPS-2 Project

This research project aims to develop a robust and efficient terrestrial system for accurate positioning and time-transfer, using virtual ultra-wideband radio signals, which can serve as a backup and complement to GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) in environments with reduced GNSS availability. The virtual ultra-wideband approach allows for a limited demand for expensive radio frequency spectrum by using multiband signals and, through flexible signal design, straightforward implementation and integration with current and new generation telecommunications standards, such as 5G, are expected. In this project, we address multiband radio channel modelling, signal design for multiband ranging, estimation of the channel impulse response from a multiband signal, and multiband carrier-phase based ranging and positioning. Furthermore, a proof-of-principle hardware prototype test-bed will be developed for carrying out measurements and demonstrating the concept.

(11) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoc on Self-Healing Structural Battery Composites for Aerospace Applications

The emerging field of Structural Batteries Composites (SBC) aims at developing multifunctional composites structures that can support mechanical forces during operation and simultaneously act as electrochemical energy storage. This new class of materials exploits the dual mechanical and electrochemical properties of carbon fibers (CF) used in aerospace composites, together with a solid-state electrolyte that acts as a binding matrix. The aim is to eventually extend the range of battery-powered airborne vehicles (e.g., drones) and provide alternative means to store electrical energy in an airplane. The scope of the work involves experimental and modelling aspects of a new class of SBC that utilizes self-healing electrolytes, which can autonomously repair after possible matrix cracking during operation.

The position involves working on various aspects of the structural battery development, including self-healing solid state electrolyte and separator, CF-based cathode/anode, SBC fabrication with integrated sensors provided by partners, and mechanical and electrochemical testing to quantify the effect of the self-healing technology on the lifetime extension of the system. The postdoctoral position is part of a EU-funded project of self-healing batteries (HEALING BAT) which involves various university and industrial partners across Europe. At TU Delft, the HEALING BAT project team involves other postdoctoral researcher, MSc students and a supervisory team from the Department of Aerospace Structures and Materials.
