  • Microfluidic chip manufacturing Pressure measurement and calibration Market analysis

    We have developed a liquid-based pressure sensor embedded in a chip using a colour-switched hydrogel and have shown that it can resolve pressures as low as 20mbar with a resolution of 10mbar. Here we propose to develop and build a stand-alone pressure sensing unit, based on our previous results, to be connected non-invasively to various microfluidic devices. With such a unit, we hope to be able to attract the interest of potential industrial partners such as microfluidic companies working in fluid control, biotechnology or pharma. Establishing a dialogue with these companies will help define the direction of future technology development and secure additional funding.

    The ability to accurately measure pressure in microfluidic devices is essential for lab-on-a-chip applications, as it is required for flow control, monitoring and characterisation of fluids. However, such measurements face specific challenges with respect to integrability and coupling to liquid phases and commercially available pressure sensors often lack the required accuracy. We have recently developed such a sensor based on an optical measurement and now propose to develop a stand-alone unit which is a crucial step between our laboratory proof of concept and the development of a technologically viable application. This post-doctoral project is part of a project funded by the CARNOT Institute of the IPGG Microfluidics Institute.

    Eligibility criteria

    We are looking for a motivated candidate who has completed his/her PhD in physics or materials science. Experience in rheology, complex fluids or microfluidics will be considered a plus. An interest in technology transfer is required.
