The exploitation of new functionalities provided by different nanomaterials is the main driving force behind the rapid development of nanotechnology. Apart of applications in structural and composite materials or coatings leading to improved mechanical, corrosion protection or wear resistance properties, the exploration of novel physical and chemical characteristics of materials on the nanoscale, their electrical, magnetic, optical, catalytic properties in integrated micro/nanodevices is the most promising from the application point of view. Sensor development will probably profit the most from the utilisation of new nano-functionalities.
The lecture will give an overview of trends and expected developments in the More than Moore domain of nanoelectronics in general and on some examples of ongoing projects at MFA:
Different nanoparticles implemented in catalytic gas sensing for combustible, explosive gas mixtures for transducers and electronic noses
Colloidal nanoparticles are formed and used in Langmuir-Blodget coatings for nanolithography as well as in stamp fabrication for soft nanolithography.
Synthesis of ZnO nanorods for photonic crystals in integrated nanooptics and nanopiezotronics for e.g. energy harvesting.
Use of protein receptors in selective photonic and nanocantilever-type sensing with the prospect of single molecule detection.
In all of these nanotechnology-related research efforts the strong multidisciplinary character, and the application driven character is obvious.
