IEEE Sensors 2010

27 10 2010

Simon’s gone. To the conference, via a few days holiday on the way. Hopefully we’ll get some feedback on the recent developments in the field of sensors. I’m particularly looking forward to hearing about the results shown in the ‘Graphene Sensors‘ session, as I think there’s plenty of scope for this wonder material as a sensor, not just as a replacement for silicon in high speed transistors. Work by Prof Geim’s team in Manchester (who won this years Nobel Prize in Physics for their work in graphene) have indicated that it should be sensitive to a single molecule on the surface, however the challenge is to engineer this into a practical solution.
For people who are interested, Simon’s IEEE-Sensors-2010-Paper and IEEE-Sensors-2010-Poster on the operation of piezoelectric energy harvesters in challenging environments are available.
