Laboratory of Sensor Technologies

The laboratory carries out research on sensors based on low-dimensional materials. We prepare and study different types of sensor materials and structures, develop related measurement techniques and prototypes for various applications.

  • We design and study very sensitive 2D materials by functionalizing single layer graphene in the process of pulsed laser deposition. The aim is to develop portable air quality sensors and electronic noses, which have a low power consumption.
  • We study the gas responses of optical materials and nanostructures (photoluminescence, optical resonances, strongly coupled systems) for novel gas sensing principles and applications.
  • We study and model the gas sensing mechanisms and develop advanced measurement methods (based on modulation and lock-in techniques), in order to improve the sensitivity, selectivity, speed and stability of the sensors.
