CADES conducts research in three broad areas: electronics, sensors and functional materials.
Electronic devices and sensors
Research in this area creates two-dimensional electronic devices, micro and nano devices for resistive switching, sensors for human health and food safety, and gas sensors and membranes for greenhouse emission study.
This research area also investigates nano-scale plasmonic chemical and biological sensors.
Research in this area develops new nano and micro dimensional materials, which are incorporated into sensors, actuators, energy harvesting systems and solar cells.
Nano and micro technology-enabled systems
Research in this area develops systems for microbial analysis, and systems based on liquid metals with incorporated nano particles.
We also boast a range of specialist capabilities, including:
- Developing and characterising sensors and electronic optical devices
- Designing and fabricating microfluidic units
- Designing and implementing sensor networks
