In the framework of the industrial chair SMILE “Smart Polymer Ferrotronic Materials for Environmental Monitoring and Energy Conversion” in collaboration with ARKEMA, ISORG, SURYS and VALEO companies, a CIFRE Ph.D. candidate is sought to work on an interdisciplinary project targeting the development of applicative demonstrators (energy transducers, flexible sensors, electromechanical actuators) based on the formulation, processing via printing methodologies and optimization of Electroactive Fluorinated Polymers (EFP). Indeed, as multifunctional electroactive materials, EFP are unique thanks to their exceptionally efficient conversion from mechanical, sound, or thermal energy into electrical power (and vice-versa). In addition to high output performance, another outstanding feature of EFP is their ability to be integrated via printing methods for flexible and stretchable electronics, broadening the range of applications such as in wearable electronics or bendable displays. Nevertheless, their application in flexible, highly mobile and compact devices still needs to be leveraged both in terms of performance optimization and integration capability.

Consequently, the Ph.D. candidate will more particularly study industrially scalable synthetic routes for the production of EFP in order to control the various monomer incorporation rates. Experimental polymerization kinetics will be associated with modeling to precisely manipulate the EFP sequence leading to molecularly-precise polymer architectures. As such sequence regulation enables a more effective control of structure-property relationships in EFPs, structural and dielectric characterizations will thus establish the macromolecular design rules leading to optimized EFP properties for the targeted applications. The Ph.D. candidate will highly benefit from the PIEZOTECH-ARKEMA facility at Pierre-Bénite dedicated to the synthesis of EFP at both pilot and industrial scale.

Selection process

Applications will comprise a CV with the names of two references and the complete Master grade transcript.
