Nanostructures for Chemical Sensors

Objective

The project "Nan structures for Chemical Sensors" (NanoChemSens) is pertaining to the identification and development of the appropriate surface science tools and Nan technological processes of future Nan devices for chemical sensing by understanding those scale-scale phenomena that control Nan structured sensors and functionalised surfaces. The first objective of the project is the development of suitable techniques for atomically controlled fabrication of Nan structured sensors ("Processing of sensor Nan structures and functionalised surfaces"). The second objective is to extend our understanding of length scales and complexity of phenomena and processes of relevance for chemical sensors and sensor/molecule interactions on functionalised surfaces having sensitive structures of canonize dimension ("Fundamental studies and new concepts on sensor Nan structures and functionalised surfaces"). The third objective is to test the performed sensor abilities and to develop potential routes from fundamental studies to sensor development for Nan structured sensors ("Control of the properties of processed sensor Nan structures and functionalised surfaces"). Four selected material systems will be investigated. -Retile-phase titanium dioxide (Toil) with man-sized metal clusters and Nan wires of metals (Pt, Pd), man-sized Mood particles, and p-type conducting Cr1.8Ti0.2O3 particles-Heteroepitaxial ultra thin structures of CuO/ZnO/AI2O3-n-conducting tungsten oxide (W03)-Organic molecules (Cu-phthalocyanine, 3,4,9,10-perlenetetracarboxylic dianhydride and oligophenylene-vinylene) on Zone and Toil single crystals and on heteroepitaxial ZnO/Al2O3 films. These materials are chosen with respect to their applicability in sensors, the level at which they are well characterized by surface science studies and their potential to develop a suitable Nan technological processing.
