(CET). El evento es gratuito, podéis uniros en el siguiente Link: Click here to join the meeting

Name and surname of the moderator: Luca Lombardo luca.lombardo@polito.it

Short description of the discussion topic:

The availability of effective, low-cost and non-invasive diagnostic instrumentation is extremely important in the biomedical field due to the growing necessity of quick and effortless early diagnosis of several pathologies. In this framework, chemical sensors represent a safe and virtually non-invasive way to assess the presence of a pathology by detecting abnormal concentrations of specified biomarkers.

The talk will firstly give a brief summary of the sensing technologies currently employed in the biomedical field. Then, the discussion will focus on the metal-oxide conductometric gas sensors, introducing their basic sensing principles and discussing their advantages and drawbacks. Finally, some practical case study will be presented including details on sensor manufacturing and the metrological characterization of its sensing performance.

Briefly about the moderator:

Assistant Professor, Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, Politecnico di Torino, Torino – ITALY. Luca Lombardo was born in Italy, in 1986. He received the B.D. and M.S. degrees in Electronic Engineering from the University of Messina, Messina (Italy), in 2014 and 2016, respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree in Metrology in 2019 from Politecnico di Torino, Torino (Italy). Currently, he is assistant professor with the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications at Politecnico di Torino.

His research interests include the development and the characterization of innovative sensors, embedded systems and instrumentation in the fields of environmental monitoring, biomedical and metrological applications.

Important: It is not intended as education. This will be the discussion of people with a similar level of knowledge.


Recibid un cordial y afectuoso saludo,
