Beata Zalinska received her MSc in Materials and Computer Science from The University of Silesia (Poland) in 2006, with specialisation in teaching. Her master project on :"Solid Oxide Fuel Cells" was completed in Germany at The University of Applied Sciences, Department of Chemical Engineering, Fachhochschule in Muenster. Beata obtained her PhD at The University of Sheffield in Department of Materials Science and Engineering on: "Bismuth based Glasses, Glass-Ceramics and Composites for Microwave Applications", completed in 2010. During her PhD in 2009 she visited Materials Research Institute at The Pennsylvania State University to work on fabrication of thick films and multilayers using tape casting method. Since 2009 she has been working as a KTP associate for the University of Sheffield and Sarantel Ltd. She is working on researching, designing and embedding a process for developing meta materials and improving the antenna metallization process used in the company.
Researching, manufacturing and characterizing materials including glasses, glass-ceramics, ceramics and composites for microwave applications.
Researching, designing and embedding a process for developing metamaterials and improving the antenna metallization process used in manufacturing including:-
- Research into literature and market research for materials with requisite properties
- Design of experimental apparatus
- Electrophoretic deposition of conducting and non-conducting materials onto 2D and 3D substrates
- Morphological analysis of materials, effect of surface treatment in electroless deposition
