Prof Bob Stevens is a co-investigator of the In-line Quality-control of UV offset lithographically Printed Electronic-ink by THz technology (IQ-PET) project, which explores the changes in THz spectra at each stage of the UV offset printing process for electrically conductive and dielectric inks.
He is Professor of SMART Materials and Devices at the Nottingham Trent University.
Research Areas include:
- Electrospinning of natural and synthetic polymers to produce functional nanofibre fabrics for applications in Life Science, Healthcare, Energy and Environment
- Point of Care and Self Diagnostic devices for early detection of disease (Type II Diabetes, Cadiovascular)
