1. Research Associate/ Fellow in Data Analysis for Metrology: Applications are invited to join the Manufacturing Metrology Team (MMT) at the University of Nottingham to carry out research focused on designing a data management system to process volumetric and surface topographic data collected by a multi-view optical fringe projection technology for advanced manufacturing applications using Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) systems. This technology will be used in conjunction with process and melt-pool monitoring sensors. The in-process fringe projection system, once tested, will be customised into the LPBF system at the University of Cambridge.
We have topics available for PhD study via the Midlands Centre for Data-Driven Metrology (MCDDM) Centre for Doctoral Training:
Expressions of interest in the MCDDM Centre for Doctoral Training should be sent to Luke Todhunter. Those interested in other future opportunities should contact Samanta Piano.
Providing companies with the opportunity to work with one of the best manufacturing metrology research communities in the UK. The centre can support you, with workforce training, advice and funded research to embed the benefits of metrology into the design & processes used in digital manufacturing for participating companies ranging from SMEs to OEMs. This includes:
MMT works closely with a range of industrial partners, and our expertise and facilities are available on a consultancy or research partnership basis. For more information, please see our Facilities page.
Team leader: Prof Samanta Piano
