Main research topics
Development of nanoparticle-based resistive sensors The Nanotech team develops resistive sensors such as strain gauges, humidity sensors and temperature sensors.
Development of capacitive nanoparticle-based strain sensors To deploy networks of connected sensors at large scale in embedded systems, it is mandatory to use wireless sensors with low power consumption.
Plasmo-electronic “plasmonic photoconductance in free-standing monolayered gold nanoparticle membranes”
Directed assembly of colloidal nanoparticles on surfaces The Nanotech team develops multiple complementary approaches for the directed assembly of colloidal nanoparticles onto rigid or flexible surfaces.
New generations of resealable and multifunctions microfluidic chips The main goal is to realize the first step of the nanoxerography protocol (contact between the colloidal dispersion and the charged substrate) not anymore by simple immersion in the colloidal bath but via the automatized injection of the dispersion inside a microfluidic chip.
