Project Description

Our research group is developing a variety of sensing devices fabricated using inkjet printing. We are exploring physical and chemical sensing technology for applications in air quality monitoring, structural health monitoring, breath analysis, and other important applications. We are investigating materials including quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, and nanowires infused in a polymer matrix or functionalized through appropriate chemistry. Our goal is to take advantage of the unique properties of nano-structured materials in printed micro-devices in order to achieve higher levels of sensitivity and selectivity. By using inkjet printing we aim to develop these devices at much lower cost compared to conventional fabrication techniques facilitating wider deployment of sensing technology.
