Thermal History Sensors

Key processes governing luminescence temperature memory coating systems is a fundamental project funded by Sensor Coatings System Ltd to understand the interactions of the active components of a thermal history paint for non-ambient applications. The technology is based on SCS patents, and the current work has funded a PhD student, Daniel Castillo, to progress these studies.  In addition SCS also supported the work of a UROP student, Disha Bandyopadhyay, to probe new routes to coating production.
