Summary of the presentation
• Organic-based sensors challenges
• Benefits from organic nanostructures in sensing applications and available deposition techniques
• Easy, low-cost and fast deposition of nanostructures over large areas through a novel wet-based technique called ASB-SANS
• Results of preliminary tests carried on ASB-SANS nanostructured P3HT as gas sensing layers
• Conclusions and future work

Speaker Biography (Cristina Bertoni)

  • Electronic Engineer with a PhD on design and fabrication of silicon-based microtransducers for sensing applications in the field of gas detectors.
  • Post-doctoral research experience in the field of nanotechnology on the use of semiconductor nanocrystals for low-voltage thin films electroluminescent devices.
  • Industrial work experience as project leader. In particular, Dr Bertoni is involved in the development of sensors and sensory systems for white goods as well as technology scouting activities, including liaising/networking with Universities and R&D centers in Italy and abroad to explore innovative solutions/products.
