Sensors presentations

25 10 2011

Two presentations finished for this weekend. The first is the oral presentation on the development of Pd nanowires on a DNA template. The sensitivity of these is higher than those grown using alternative techniques and is substantially easier, as it is a self assembled bottom up technique. A pdf of the presentation can be found at IEEE Sensors 2011 – Paper 1457. The other presentation is Ben’s work looking at the mechanism behind gas sensing in high-K/SiC (IEEE Sensors – Poster 1421 – Ben), where we show that HfO2 dielectrics are insensitive to oxygen. This is a key step in us understanding the basic physics behind our target of building an array structure in SiC. The poster has been printed by the reprographics team here in the University, who have recently added the capability to print onto canvas, which means I can fit it into my suitcase and avoid the excess charges for a poster tube on the plane. It’s also cheaper than buying a ‘normal’ A0 paper version and having it laminated!
