Applied Sensors Laboratory - LabSensNano2

Main activities

  • Developing gas detection sensors
  • Investigating electrochemical sensors and biosensors
  • Engineering micro- and nanosystems to be applied in sensors (MEMS, NEMS) and electronics

Laboratory equipment

  • Time-of-flight mass spectrometers
  • Setup to perform tip bonding of chips and thin-layer samples, with semiconductor and impedance analyzers allowing electrical characterization
  • Tescan Mira II scanning electron microscope to observe biological samples: EDX/WDX detectors integrated, UHV/NHV modes fully usable, and a low vacuum secondary Tescan detector (LVSTD) at hand for expanded operability
  • Ion beam assisted deposition system to deliver very thin conforming films
  • Instruments to deposit self-assembled monolayers and Parylene => forming hydrophobic sheets in spin-coating and microfluidic applications, and generating biocompatible films for lab-on-a-chip devices.
