Areas of Interest
Wearable electronics: - Herein, we are working on a novel and facile approach for developing bendable and foldable strain sensors based on paper substrates patterned with graphene that allow full-range operation of wearable electronics. On the one hand, Graphene-paper sensors maintain the simplicity of paper-based devices on the other hand, these devices are inexpensive, scalable and highly sensitive to tiny deflections over a broad sensing range. , Biosensor: - The development of specific, sensitive and real-time bacteria sensing methods are of great importance for the detection of microbial contaminants to ensure food and environmental quality. In this contribution, we focus on the spontaneous detection of bacteria using a magnetic nanoparticle encapsulation methodology. Bacteria are encapsulated by magnetic nanoparticles and brought to the Graphene sensing surface under external magnetic force in less than a min. , Microfluidic device fabrication: - A major design constraint for micro-molds is their inability to withstand a prolonged sliding surface contact, which means that a short functional lifetime of these devices is induced by high sidewall friction or high cohesive energy of the counterparts in contact. Our research aims to improve the surface properties of micro-molds that are to be used for the fabrication of microfluidic devices by hot embossing or injection molding. , Smart farming: - The research goal is to provide a long-term sustainable solution for automation of agriculture. Therefore, we are working on the development of a portable measurement technology including soil moisture sensor, air humidity sensor and air temperature sensor with the purpose for collecting the environment data and controlling the irrigation system via smart devices.
