Dr Sarah-Jane Potts
Technology Transfer Fellow
Sarah-Jane is a scale up technology transfer fellow under the Industrial Coatings group in SPECIFIC. Her work focuses on developing large-scale screen printed mesoporous carbon perovskite solar modules in the pilot production plant, as well as working on other printed electronics projects.
Prior to becoming a researcher, Sarah-Jane completed her EngD in the Welsh Centre of Printing and Coating (WCPC), Swansea University, sponsored by icmPrint Consortium through the Materials and Manufacturing Academy (M2A). This research looked at the effect of ink viscosity and parameter settings on how inks and pastes are deposited during screen printing, along with the effects of post processing on print quality and performance. Sarah-Jane also holds a Master of Engineering (MEng), first class with honours in Product Design Engineering from Swansea University.
