Miss Chen Xue is a postgraduate research student in the department of Engineering and Physical Sciences.In 2021, I began a Ph.D. titled "Laser-Induced Graphene for Health Monitoring of Composite Materials" after obtaining a Master's and Bachelor's degree in Materials Science and Engineering. My master's degree sparked my interest in sensor design and manufacturing and led me to the belief that smart composites are essential to the Industrial Revolution 4.0.

Current Research Project
Graphene is known for its high specific surface area and good thermal/electrical conductivity, which makes it suitable in applications such as wearable electronics and energy storage. Recently a graphenic nano-materials called laser-induced graphene (LIG) has been widely investigated due to its easy, cost-effective, and scalable synthesis.
The Ph.D. research entitled "Laser-Induced Graphene for Health Monitoring of Composite Materials" makes use of the superior electrical conductivity of LIG to develop a wide-range sensing platform that has the capability to detect various physical quantities in a composite structure such as strain/stress, damage area, fatigue crack propagation.
