Solid state gas sensors based on electrical and electro-chemical transduction principles are receiving increasing attention in both industry and academia for their widespread range of applications spanning from comfort, safety, security, medicine to environmental monitoring and process engineering.
The today availability of a large palette of new nanomaterials with very peculiar functional properties is an unprecedented tool to address the demand for more sensitive, selective, stable, smaller size and with a lower operating temperature gas sensors suitable for microelectronics integration.
Through the exploitation of the high reactivity of nano-materials due to their extremely high surface-to-volume ratio, their very special surface states, quantum confinement effects and outstanding electronic properties, the goals is to create a new generation of stable and reproducible miniaturized sensors with increased sensitivity and selectivity, shorter response time, good reversibility, low energy consumption, and suitable to be mass produced at low cost.
This symposium aims at enlightening recent progress and perspective views of materials and technology achievements in solid state nanosensors for gas and organic and inorganic volatile compounds detection.
Matter covered includes:
- Basic principles of gas and volatile compounds sensors
- New nanomaterials for semiconductor and electrochemical gas sensors; novel functionalization approaches by molecular engineering; nanostructure design and control of the major factors affecting sensing performance;
- Gas sensor devices design and evaluation: nanosensor architectures by top-down, bottom-up or combined approaches for (multi)signal layers; functional hybrid heterostructures; integration process into macroscopic and micromachined substrates; sensitivity, selectivity, response time, power consumption and signal stability and reproducibility
- Ongoing and prospective applications
