meLAB News in 2020

May 2020
  • Good news! our work on "Miniaturized Magnetoelectric Sensing System for pico-Tesla MagnetoMyoGraphy”, has been accepted for publication to the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems. It’s been on a 2 yrs journey, a collaborative work by Kiel University, University of Glasgow, Newcastle University, and Fraunhofer Institute for Silicon Technology ISIT.
  • Our Asfand has been awarded “Study Abroad Studentship” from the Leverhulme Trust. Asfand is one of the 25 Study Abroad Studentships this year. He will continue his research on miniaturized magnetic sensors for wearable applications and aims to fabricate a magnetic tunneling junction sensor in International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), Portugal.
