Project Title: Innovative gas separation system for sensing applications
Project Description: In order to increase the performance and compactness of gas sensing devices, this Ph.D. project aims the investigation of innovative functional nanomaterials to develop a new compact sensor that allows to detection of different gases with elevated selectivity and sensitivity. The system will be formed by two different components, the µ-fabricated system for the separation of the different gases and the sensor that allows detecting the single components. The integration of these two devices will allow us to obtain a compact integrated platform useful for different applications such as indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring, precision farming, and medical screening. The research project will be performed in three steps:
Dr. Andrea Gaiardo, Sensor and Device Center, Bruno Kessler Foundation, Trento, Italy.
Dr. Anze Sitar, Sensor and Device Center, Bruno Kessler Foundation, Trento, Italy.
The project is funded by Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK).
