Electrospun nanoparticle-nanofiber composites for advanced gas sensing

Portable chemical sensors are of critical importance for detection of air pollutants and biomarkers in human breath such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), CO, NO2 and CH4. Low power requirement is essential for long term operations of these mobile sensors providing real-time data about the ambient air quality and health monitoring. Nanotechnology has had significant impacts on sensor technology enabling the development of portable and inexpensive nano-sensors that exhibit operational advantages such as low operation power as well as high …

Epitaxial growth of 2D heterostructures on SiC for electronics and gas sensing

Graphene has attracted a great deal of interest due to its remarkable electronic, optical and mechanical properties, however the absence of a bandgap limits its use in many applications. Future applications in nanoelectronics and gas sensing will depend critically on the development of novel approaches to introduce a bandgap while preserving carrier mobility, for example by creating heterostructures of graphene with other two dimensional (2D) materials with complementary properties.This project will explore the heteroepitaxial growth of new 2D materials to …
