Sensor Laboratory

At international level the mission of SENSOR: Nanotechnologies for Sensing and Advanced Applications is to design and develop materials and processes to realize devices and systems for functional applications.
In the field of bio-chemical sensing, the core of SENSOR activity, priority sectors of commitment are: Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Nanomedicine, Food and Security.
In the field of Energy SENSOR pursues the cutting edge scientific and technological challenges of research and industrial transfer on nanowire based third-generation solar cells.
Beside quasi 1-dimensional oxide nanostructures, which represent the most advanced field of investigation of nanostructured materials at SENSOR, are applied as fundamental building blocks of a forefront research in nanowire optoelectronics: new ZnO based LEDs, single-nanowire based sensors, highly efficient and long time stable electron field emitters and ionized gas sources

Latest News

  • Special Issue on MDPI Nanomaterials
    We are pleased to invite authors to publish an original research paper or a focused review to the following Special Issue on MDPI Nanomaterials journal:

    "Nanostructured Gas Sensors"
    Submission deadline: 31 May 2020

    All papers will be peer-reviewed. All accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as they are accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website.

    Nanomaterials is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes. An Article Processing Charge (APC) of CHF 2000 currently applies to all accepted papers.
