Membranes can be used for example in ultrafiltration, dialysis, water purification, or gas separation. For all these applications it is advantageous to make the membrane as thin as possible and at the same time as mechanically and chemically robust as possible. Perforated graphene promises an unprecedented level of transport rates in filtering. Thus, for membrane technologies novel composites based on graphene can offer significant improvements unachievable by conventional materials.
The present project intends to develop a novel hybrid “nano-optomechafluidics” measurement platform, whose original principle is based on coupling a strongly focused laser beam to the vibrations of a
Reducing the absorber thickness is one of the main issues for most photovoltaic technologies, because of the material cost or scarcity, and potential efficiency improvements with higher carrier concen
Obesity and correlated diseases such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, coronary diseases and diabetes mellitus have more than doubled since 1980 and are now clearly identified as a worldwide pandemic in
In the field coupling micro/nanotechnologies with life sciences, the use of advanced devices as highly sensitive biosensors is currently in a transfer phase towards the applicative realm of medicine. The expectations of the medical community with respect to these novel technologies is located in the sensitivity and specificity of such devices which could enable the early diagnosis of numerous diseases but also their monitoring through the detection of rare circulating biomarkers.
