Dr Tim Mortensen
Tim obtained an MPhys degree from Swansea University in 2009 and completed his EPSRC funded PhD on the ‘Manipulation of the magnetron orbits of particles and clouds in a two stage buffer gas accumulator’ at the same institution in 2013. During his research with antimatter systems at Swansea and Late in Saclay, Paris, he not only gathered and analysed experimental data, but designed and built a range of bespoke hardware and software solutions to facilitate simplified data acquisition and analysis. Upon his return to the UK in mid-2014, Tim was offered a role on a project in the field of printed electronics at the Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating (WCPC) to create a low cost printed pressure sensor. The project far exceeded its expectations. The technology behind the sensor has been patented and is in the process of being commercialised by industrial partners of the University. He now works on the FLEXIPOWER project, an EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Large Area Electronics funded project developing printed wireless energy harvesting systems.
