A Webinar on “2D Nanomaterials for Advanced Electronic Applications”

Admin | April 8, 2021

Our Smart Nano-Solution Research team is mainly focused on the development of cost effective, high performance multi-functional materials from a broad range of polymer Nano composites for different applications. Our research team has developed non-enzymatic sensor to detect diabetes by monitoring acetone level in human breath. We are also concerned about the global warming and to overcome this issue, we capture CO2 and convert it into fuels via electrochemical method. Our team is continuously working on the recycling of both plastic and industrial waste and developed Resistive transducers. Thus, Nano composites of both plastic and carbon black has been fabricated by our team to develop an efficient sensor which can be used for several applications. The piezoresistive sensor composed of industrial waste Nano composites was printed with the help of 3D printing technology. Taking the advantage of polymer based composites water absorbent property, we have employed hydrogels in agriculture to monitor the water needs of the plants and to allow safe release of the fertilizers. Hydrogel device can be used as a water reservoir in addition to sensors. The quantity of water in the soil can be maintained and regulated using hydrogel based sensor. Furthermore, our team will present a review on the methods used for the fabrication of current advanced sensors.
