Functieomschrijving (inclusief taken en verantwoordelijkheden)

Characterization of Polymers and Hybrid Materials by Micro- Computed Tomography Scanner

Recently, the analytical department at SABIC purchases the last generation micro-CTscanner for industrial applications and material science research and development. CTscan is a non-destructive testing technique allowing investigating internal and external structures, providing accurate 3D information on the geometry and morphology. The Micro-Analysis team is building expertise in X-ray micro-CTscan for the characterization of polymers and hybrid materials.

One of the key parameters to ensure the reliability of the measurements is the establishment of measuring uncertainty on the attenuation coefficient that can be derived from CTscan experiments. The student will establish the relationship between the sample characteristic, the scanning parameters and the obtained signal to noise ratio, in view of developing a method for the optimization of the scanning parameters.

Other parameters which would influence the measurements reproducibility are environmental factors, such as temperature, humidity or vibrations. The purpose of the study will aim at characterizing their effects on the ability of tracking specific features and to design and assess potential hardware and software solutions.

Profiel van geschikte kandidaat

  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills
  • Flexible, creative and independent
  • Good general laboratory skills
  • Knowledge in materials science and polymers
  • Preferably knowledge in the interactions between radiation and matter
  • Confident with computing and computing theory
  • Good interpersonal skills
  • Ability to organize, prioritize and handle multiple projects simultaneously
  • Good verbal and written English communication skills

The duration of the internship is 12 months starting in summer 2019.
Candidates who are not available during timeline mentioned above for 12 months will not be considered. Candidates who are not currently enrolled as students will also not be considered.
