UF Team Works to Create Most Resilient Sensor on Earth

A diverse team led by three ECE Florida faculty members is set to receive funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to design and fabricate dynamic pressure sensors capable of performing at temperatures upwards of 800 °C (1472 °F), over a factor of 6X higher than any integrated pressure sensor currently in use. The $6.6M project, funded as part of the DARPA High Operational Temperature Sensors (HOTS) program, seeks to enable the creation of electronics and sensors integral to industrial, military, and space applications. The core team comprises Dr. Mark Sheplak (lead PI), Dr. Roozbeh Tabrizian, and Dr. Philip Feng.
