G11: Biochemical sensors for environment and health



This symposium will bring together interdisciplinary researchers from engineering to science and technology to discuss recent developments in materials, methods, and materials integration for biochemical sensors. These devices measure single or multiple analytes over wide temperatures and concentrations, ranging from subambient to high temperatures and from micromolar to several tens of percent, respectively. Biochemical sensors can be electrochemical, mixed potential, semiconducting, impedimetric, amperometric, capacitive, optical, acoustic, piezoelectric, or a combination of these and more. Sensors can be invasive or non-invasive types for improving safety, security, and health. Papers focusing on new materials, including metals, ceramics, and polymers; nanoscale heterojunctions; nanomaterials using nanoparticles; graphene; carbon nanotubes; signal processing; mechanisms, kinetics, modeling, and simulation; MEMS/CMOS platforms; sensors on-a-chip; and manufacturing and packaging of sensors are welcome.


Proposed session topics:


• Chemical and biochemical sensors

• Characterization of graphene, carbon nanotubes, and nanomaterials and their composites for sensing applications

• Sensor materials, methods, and mechanisms, including selectivity, sensitivity, and response time

• Emerging materials, technologies, and future challenges

• Sensors for safety, security, and health

• Sensors for environmental monitoring

• Sensors for in-line process diagnostics

• Sensors for extreme, corrosive, and harsh environments

• Sensors for marine, mines, and space applications

• Sensor reliability and reproducibility

• Wireless technologies for remote sensing, monitoring, and actions

• Sensor manufacturing, packaging, and integration

• Data acquisition and real-time process monitoring, evaluation, feedback, and control

• Theory, modeling, and simulation
