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.
SENSOR Lab is proud to announce that the University of Brescia and the CNR-IDASC are jointly organizing the 28th European Conference on Solid-State Transducers (Eurosensors 2014).
The conference will be held on the University of Brescia Engineering and CNR campus on February 5-7, 2013. Informations and subscriptions are available through the conference web-site www.eurosensors2014.eu. Prof. Giorgio Sberveglieri (Conference Chair) and Prof. Vittorio Ferrari (Program Committee Chair)
