Ongoing Research Projects
This project presents a new approach towards the development of advanced selective solid-state gas sensors. The foundational idea relies on benefitting from the simultaneous occurrence of different physical and chemical changes induced by a particular gas on the sensing material and measuring these changes through simultaneous electrical and optical signals. Due to the different gas response patterns of these readouts, the device will constitute an integrated nanoelectronic nose.
Cyberspace plays nowadays a key role in modern societies and economies, and its protection is a pivotal challenge in national security strategies. Over the last decade, various technological developments have contributed to make our dependency on cyberspace even greater, including the generation and processing of massive amounts of data, the influence of social networks over all activities of our daily lives, or the trend to connect to Internet virtually every realworld device.
Transportation noise has become a major concern for residents in urban environments, giving rise to stacked legislation at various levels. Current noise reduction technologies do not seem to be sufficient to achieve the targeted reduction. Noise abatement classical procedures add additional weight. Active technologies are mainly applied to downscaled models components and have a moderate technology readiness level.
Nuevas vías no-invasivas de diagnóstico temprano en enfermedades crónicas y degenerativas
New project to develop an innovative approach to present buildings and archaelogical ruins. Case Study: Museu Arqueológico do Carmo.
NanoSen-AQM faces the challenge of monitoring ambient air pollution and reporting air quality to the public in real time and in a sustainable way. The objective is to develop an electronic system based on low cost and low consumption sensors, and to validate the system in different locations of the Sudoe territory in front of certified air pollutant analysers.
In the present project a study will be carried out to facilitate the generation of ultrasonic images of pieces of complex geometry through the use of industrial robots.
